Aria Sky Suite review

I love Vegas, I’ll just start with that so my bias is declared. I think its the best place on earth. Wether its a stag do, honeymoon or weekend with the wife, Vegas can fill any need you ask of it. ….as long as you choose the right hotel. 10 guys rocking up to the Bellagio…

Aria Sky Suite Penthouse

Agile Manchester conference 2017

After the great line up in 2016 I was looking forward to speaking at this years event. My talk was based on my “Hello… I’m your project manager” talk that I did at Yorkshire Agile earlier in the year. I took feedback from that audience and made a few changes, mainly having a common thread…
