The past few months have been an exercise in keeping my feet on the ground. Under the name Agile East Anglia I have organised and run three well attended events and come away from each with an amazing feeling of achievement and usually totally shattered. During those months I was exceptionally lucky to meet John Fagan, Seb Butcher, Stephen Pengilley and Juliana Meyer. All like minded individuals who were either running their own groups or keen to get involved in running a group. It wasn’t long before we decided to collaborate and last night was the first SyncNorwich event, hopefully of many.
The Magic 5
SyncNorwich was attended by around 60 people, which was twice the maximum Agile East Anglia attendance. After all the hard work we put in the event just seemed to run itself. We received so much positivity and positive feedback from the crowd. Although I left the pub at 10.30pm I heard tell of a group of people partying at a club to 3am.
Needless to say, SyncNorwich was the reason I was feeling out of this world!
I could go on to tell you what happened and how good the speakers were, or I could just point you to the reviews that have started to be published:
