Course Leader: Stuart Turner
Hi, I’m Stuart Turner and I provide consulting, coaching and training to individuals, teams and organisations wanting to learn and improve. I’ve been authoring and nurturing software for 25 years on products for low-latency financial investment trading, financial modelling, operational risk and 3D computer aided modelling.
I’ve worked with and within startups, Global 100 companies and a variety of organisations between those extremes. I’ve also been an independent consultant and developer, running two small companies in the UK before moving to Singapore in 2011.
I’m a proponent of XP practices and have been since I encountered Kent Beck’s book on them in 2002. More than a decade later, and with the experience of working in and helping transform many teams and organisations, I continue to learn how to learn and to help others learn how to achieve their own goals.
I’ve been interested in understanding how people, teams and organisations work and how they fit in with the rest of society for as long as I can remember. My journey to discover deeper and more fulfilling answers continues. I’m a continual learner and experimenter. One of the things I like about being a Scrum Alliance Certified Trainer is the freedom to improve my courses based on student feedback as well as sharing of experiences with other trainers.

Accolades for the course
“…since the course our Scrum sprints have been improving tremendously! The team is a lot more confident now in executing sprints and the flow is a lot more legitimate. A lot of friction has also been removed as part of me ‘actively doing nothing’ and asking coaching questions based on my observations. I’m extending the knowledge to helping the scrums of other groups as well, so everyone is benefiting from it.” - Jason Mah, The Co-Foundry
I attended Stuart’s CSPO course over nine months ago. I have also attended the PMI Strategic Product Manager course which was four days in duration. I learned a lot more on the CSPO course and continue to be more aware of my thinking and behaviour every day. I recommend Stuart to “keep doing what he’s doing. It’s very effective.” - Jan Donyada, Product Manager at Sypherlabs
The last three days were a meaningful learning journey for me. Today’s session on OpenSpace Agility was impressive. - Srinidhi Raghavendra, SGX (December 2015)
“I came to this course looking for answers to certain problems. I didn’t get straight answers. Instead, I learned an attitude and a way of how we can figure it out for ourselves” - Utsav Kant, Autodesk (January 2016)
“The whole approach of the course was amazing. As it’s a known fact that practical things have an ever-lasting effect on the mind, your exercises/activities were fabulous. I had loads of positive take-aways. My sincere thanks to you for conducting such a wonderful course.” - Bharat Bhushan, DBS (February 2016)
