This one day workshop in London is an introduction to my systematic approach to coaching testers.

Coaching testers facilitates the ongoing self-education for a tester. The tester is in centre of the learning experience allowing them to control what they learn, making it relevant and powerful compared to traditional teaching practices.

Anne-Marie’s coaching approach focuses on discovering and strengthening a tester’s skill within a coaching session. The coach gives the tester a task to complete and using the art of socratic questioning guides the tester through the task.

A debriefing session follows where both tester and coach evaluate the session, highlighting learning points and validating work done well.

Join Anne-Marie on this one day workshop to discover the skill of coaching testers in this way.


The workshop will focus on the following aspects of coaching testers:

  • The Science behind the coaching
  • Coaches Skill Set
  • The Coaching Task
  • Navigating a Coaching Session
  • Evaluating Coaching Sessions
