Agile Yorkshire volunteer and regular attendee Amy Thompson was recently voted Best Agile Coach of 2013 by a panel of judges, including Computer Weekly editors and other industry experts, in a glitzy event at London's Grand Connaught Rooms. The yearly event was hosted by comedian and actress Sally Phillips and included a slap-up dinner, with all the money going to charity.
Congratulations to Amy for landing this national award and to Amy's boss at The Big Word; who hopefully is now considering a pay rise to ward off the head hunters and recruitment firms in hot pursuit. Conceivably her example will inspire more nominees from our region in the future, as obviously in a county noted for its thrift, agile values are just second nature.
