What’s your story?  What did you do to bounce back and grow?


Evelien Acun-Roos is an experienced Agile Trainer at Xebia Academy and a Professional Scrum Trainer at Scrum.org.
She has a profound knowledge of Agile and Scrum and knows how to transfer that to Teams, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, their surrounding environment, and their management. She loves to get teams up and running and then help them continuously improve. She has helped many different organizations to become more Agile (Unilever, ING, Rabobank, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, APG, Philips, VodafoneZiggo a.o.). Evelien loves to give training. She is a certified trainer for Training from the Back of the Room and her training courses are filled with brain-based learning activities. In her classes she lets the learner learn instead of the teacher teaching. At Agile conferences you can find her sharing knowledge about Scrum Values, Liberating Structures, Brain Science, Situational Leadership; essentially a variety of ways ‘to Boost your Scrum’.


During the pandemic we all faced it. All meetings online, video images of good and bad quality, connection problems, access problems, training and sessions online, while kids, pets and partners are in the same room.  During that time Rozemarijn and Evelien met online, attending each other’s workshops and training and learning about each other specialists and qualities.  We collaborated to bring our two professions together and learned from each other how to create the best engaging sessions. Rozemarijn from her experience as an actress and Evelien from her experience as a trainer.  We want to share that knowledge with you to create more engaging sessions, meetings, and events. We have come up with ten tips you can use online and in person that will help you to overgrow the challenges when doing sessions, building connections, and increasing personal engagement.  We will have to face it, there is a new way of working, but did you have the time to look back and think about what this means for your own life? We changed our way of working within a few days, and we are still experimenting with making the most out of these new opportunities.  In this session, we will take you on our journey to pave the path for your own story.

Learning outcomes:
