Should you be a Scrum trainer or Agile coach, you’ll find this course particularly interesting, as you’ll see how the learner-engagement methods of TBR dovetail with Scrum/Agile concepts.

What Exactly is Training from the Back of the Room (TBR)
The driving force behind TBR training is Sharon Bowman, who put together a collection of principles, techniques and resources that leverage the way the brain works. The result is a training course for trainers that allows any coaching or instruction that they provide to have its intended result – maximum student learning.
As well as being aimed at instructors, coaches and trainers, TBR is also highly beneficial to Agile coaches, Scrum Masters, speakers and pretty much anyone that speaks publicly. What the training teaches is how to get your audience more engaged and your message better communicated.
