Learning Consultant & CEO

Hi - I am Vera and I am a learning consultant and CEO at QualityMinds. I try to improve the learning process, especially for testers, for a couple of years now. Therefore I take a closer look on how people learn and what kind of, scientifically proven, methods would help them with their individual learning. To get a better understanding of my learners, I worked as a tester, product owner and Scrum Master in different projects.
