Who are you ?
Ben Linders

What do you do for a living ?
As a trainer, facilitator, coach, and advisor, I help organizations with effectively deploying software development and management practices. I focus on continuous improvement, collaboration and communication, and professional development, to deliver business value to customers.

What do you want to speak about at FlowCon ?
In the workshop on psychological safety, we'll play different game formats in groups in parallel. Examples are an ice-breaker to get people talking about psychological safety, a constellation where people take positions about aspects of psychological safety in their team or organization, and collaborative card games where people work together to create an environment that fosters psychological safety.

What are you the proudest of?
I’m a practical person who wants to have a real impact and make the world a little bit better. I look for ways to apply things, help people experiment and learn, and share my and other people's experiences.


What speaker and/or topic would you like to see at FlowCon?
Many great speakers there already, nothing to add :-)


If you were an art piece, which one would it be?
Probably a sculpture of a fish


What's your favorite band, artist or song?
Rush, fingers crossed if they find a new drummer
