Scrum Coaching Retreat Workshop

I have teamed up with the Scrum Alliance Coaching Retreat to offer a 50% discount to my 1-day Scrum Mastery workshop for people attending the retreat. The workshop will be run in the same venue as the retreat on the day before the retreat starts. Regular tickets are £500, with early bird tickets available until April at £400 and those booking on the retreat (which I would thoroughly recommend by the way) will pay just £250. Details are on the website here and you can book on here
