In my professional life, I have extensive strategic consulting and software delivery experience within the Agile development methodology. I have a passion for building web and mobile applications that has taken me around the world. In the last ten years, I have lived and worked in India, Germany, Australia, the US and UK .
I speak regularly about these kinds of topics and hope that other people find them as fascinating as I do. Recently, I traded in my passport and suitcase to return to Chicago. I am currently serving as partner and Chief Operating Officer at Table XI, a software consultancy specializing in web and mobile application design and development.
In 2014, I founded Ops Conf (short for Operations Conference) to bring together a global community of software companies to share insights and swap ideas on how to effectively run a consulting organization.

Today we are talking about meetings. Any group software activity is going to have meetings, and we’re going to talk about making them better, where by better we mean more interactive and able to get meaningful contributions from everybody without letting the loudest or most powerful voices dominate. My guests are Mark Rickmeier, the CEO of Table XI, and Katie Gore, of the communication coaching company SpeechIRL. As this podcast comes out, Table XI is running a Kickstarter for a new meeting tool that you can use to improve your meetings. We’ll talk about how we came to develop the tool, how we use it, and why we think it’s effective. We want to hear from you — what’s the problem with your meetings and how have you solved it?
