A friendly, low-fi, lunchtime, outdoor agile meet-up ... on a bench
Agile on the bench is as you may expect, on a bench (well on a few benches), outdoors, in a park. The park also has a bandstand in case it rains.
Being in a park means no tech, there are no laptops or projectors, just the speakers, the attendees and lots of fantastic ideas.
It’s not for profit, which means that it's free for you to attend as speakers and organisers generously donate their time for the love of Agile.
Talks are short, with plenty of time for discussion, asking questions and getting back to work.
And badges… expect badges.
We schedule two awesome speakers each session who talk about anything related to Agile, people, teams or users. You can read more about the talks below.
Speakers have up to 10mins to convey their message in any way they choose, followed by 5mins for questions.
After the scheduled speakers we have Agile question time, a chance for you to ask the group any questions you have about Agile. Think of them as your agile agony aunts and uncles.

How to break up with your team: we spend a lot of time and effort on creating close-knit, high performing teams, but what do we do when the project ends and the members need to move on? Cara will talk about how breaking up a team is like ending a relationship and give you advice on how to move on.
