Next Event

Tuesday 17th March: Gwen Diagram - Satisfaction with Abstraction, From Individual Contributor to Leadership plus Sophie Weston - Designing Teams

Unfortunatly we have to announce that this event will NOT NOW GO AHEAD on the 17th March. Due to the unfolding situation with COVID-19 Anaplan have taken the difficult decision to cancel all upcoming events in all offices globally. We will be reviewing the situation over the next few weeks and hopefully the event will be rescheduled at the earliest opportunity.

Agile Yorkshire goes on tour. We’ve decided to reach out some of the amazing companies in our region and take Agile Yorkshire on the road. For March the Agile Yorkshire meetup has moved to York and will be hosted by our own regional unicorn Anaplan, from their super cool offices in The Bonding Warehouse, Terry Ave, York YO1 6FA
Anaplan started life 2006 on the kitchen table of  York based Michael Gould and is now listed on the New York Stock Exchange, has operations in over 13 countries, has raised over $250 million in funding, has over one thousand employees and a valuation of well over the billion dollars giving it true “unicorn” status.
