Angelika Buhrow

I’m Angelika Buhrow, a qualified industrial engineer who jumped straight into the Agile world after completing my studies. I’m currently working as an Agile coach at BMW IT Hub, and I absolutely love what I do. I’m constantly learning new things, and I really enjoy using my newfound knowledge to create workshops for the Agile community at BMW. I’m a big believer in the term “Enabler,” which I think perfectly describes the role of Agile coaches and scrum masters in enabling teams to work better, enabling teams to improve their processes, and collaborate more effectively.

Robyn Joynt

In my early years, I aspired to be a doctor to aid others, but the complexities of human biology discouraged me. Instead, I turned to a career centered around life hacks, finding fulfillment in solving real-life problems in the agile domain. The joy of learning, sharing knowledge, and aiding people drives me daily, leading me to pursue a career as a Scrum Master. I strongly believe in the power of empathy and attentive listening to transform teams and individuals. My goal is to help others reach their potential, and my passion for this journey fuels my continuous growth. Beyond work, I cherish time with loved ones and nurturing my herb and vegetable garden.
