Over the past 18+ years, I pursued my passion and proficiency in Digital Product Development while working predominantly in the payment and technology spaces. My experience transitioned to Agile in 2010. Having practiced as Product Owner and also as Scrum Master provides me an intriguing blend of complementing perspectives. I now improve the flow and happiness for leaders, leadership teams, and organisations, through coaching and training.
I do my best to serve as a mentor and servant to the community, as part of my vicarious quest to help others achieve their goals. My dedication to continual learning has made me extremely effective (my clients’ words) as an Enterprise Agile Coach & Executive Coach, helping my clients to accomplish huge wins. Over the years I got to work with a variety of companies, such as major finance (in the past, I don’t serve this field anymore), and tech corporations, government departments, as well as digital & creative agencies. I focus on serving the latter nowadays. As a qualified Personal and Business Coach, I also coach leaders become even better versions of themselves.
My quest for adventure once led me to a treacherous part of the world where I conquered, gutted and fried up the commonly feared Piranha in the Amazon Basin (if you’re wondering, they are rather tasty and crunchy). I thrive in challenging situations as I continue my coaching & training practice today in London, England much of the time, and Porto, Portugal some of the time.

Over the years I got to work with, at, and through, a great variety of creative agencies, digital agencies, digital studios, and digital product studios. I got to appreciate the different dynamics from both agency and client side.
Please note that I no longer serve the banking sector.

One of Georg’s greatest skills is his ability to turn any topic into deceptively simple components. Sometimes you don’t even realise you’re learning… and then you do. A lot.
Georg’s style of teaching itself is a lesson in leadership! He’s helped me make sure I have the tools and focus to enable my team to come up with the answers and become leaders themselves.
Still a lot more knowledge to extract from Georg’s brain, I look forward to many more sessions as our company grows and the challenges become more varied.
