Speaker Bio:
Robert Finan
Robert Finan, always liked drawing, but his father made clear there wasn’t much of a career to be had in it. Having accepted that his talent would only have proven his father right, Robert studied engineering in Dublin before acquiring a master’s and a doctorate in Dundee. Despite this overdose of academia, he still managed to find a proper job.

Having tried most jobs in the IT industry, Robert finally came to rest as an agile coach. It was then that he decided to apply to his drawing the same lessons that he taught his customers: iterations, time-boxing, inspect and adapt, strive to get something done rather than striving for perfection. After 4 decades of starting comics and never finishing them, this agile approach led to the Agile Drill Sergeant webcomic.

When not drawing comics (or drinking Guinness), he can be found plying his trade as an agile coach with TechTalk in Vienna."
