Erik Collard

After 10+ years in various roles in Retail (sales, coaching, training etc.) I joined the wonderful world late 2019 as a Scrum Master. I quickly fell in love with the approach, the creativity and the Continuous Learning mindset that is closely related to Agile. During these few years I always tried to bring joy and excitement in everything I did and to make my colleagues enthusiastic about their own work.

Outline or timetable

The purpose of the session is to make the participants experience what it feels like to receive information about a project and that the way to present this information can be more important than the information itself.

𝗜𝗻 𝘀𝘂𝗺𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘆, 𝗶𝘁 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗴𝗼 𝗶𝗻 𝟯 𝗽𝗵𝗮𝘀𝗲𝘀 :

  1. With some examples, I want to create a "revelation" moment (yeah, the "wow" effect), during which they would understand and embrace this idea.
  2. We will analyze together what are the differences between a well-marketed idea and bad-marketed idea (it looks boring but it won't).
  3. We will use these learnings to "market" an activity of our daily work (in solo or in pairs, to be determined) and make it SHINE !

To make this exercise relatable for the participants, I will use the example of a meeting invite - everyone still feels the pain of setting up a meeting that noone attends, and I want to press when it hurts :D - Of course, the experience, tips and learnings we'll get during the session will be valid for a broader set of activities than a meeting :)
