What Others Say…

Tricia has a way of connecting the theory and the application in such a way that it really sticks with you. Every class I’ve had a chance to take with her has not only advanced my career, but also jump started my personal growth in increasingly meaningful ways. Her experience allows her to speak as easily to executives as she does engineers and bridge the gaps between them. Using the lessons learned from Mrs. Broderick, I’ve been able to build some of the most effective and healthy teams I’ve ever had the honor to work with.

Jerimiah OwensVP of Enterprise Engineering

Bottom-line, Tricia is phenomenal. She combines a very deep knowledge of Agile with an amazing speaking, training and coaching ability with a candid, compassionate personality. She has a deep passion to see people learn and grow. Tricia can gain people's trust very quickly and has an exceptional gift of understanding the person she is dealing with and adapting to make the message resonate with them. With Tricia, people can expect to be pushed out of a comfort zone but in an exceptionally positive way.

Ahmed SidkyHead of Business Agility

I worked with Tricia in various roles as a leadership peer colleague and have since continued to attend her trainings. In that time, I observed her immense passion and energized approach to inspire others to do their best. I particularly remember her willingness to share and listen to real life experiences to work through retrospectives for the greatest desired outcomes. I would undoubtedly recommend Tricia to work with any individual and any organization. She is not only became my go-to but a lifelong confidant.

Tiffany BoydBusiness Process Mgt Director

When I first met Tricia, I could tell right away that she was passionate about not just 'doing agile' but more 'being agile'. She later invited me to speak on a conference panel about organizational transformation. I was again impressed as she is definitely a person that strives to understand the need over being perspective, seeks to apply the right sized agile approach to the problem at hand, and communicates the concepts of agility to be accessible to others in the best way possible.

Todd HoldenExecutive IT Director

It is difficult to adequately underscore how lucky I was to have had Tricia as my manager. Even now, years after we went our separate professional ways, she always makes time to coach, mentor and challenge me through work and life. As if that was not enough, her selflessness has expanded beyond me to help out my staff with outreach, advice, and perspective. My life is demonstrably better for having her support all these years. I highly recommend taking every opportunity to interact and/or work with Tricia. You will not be sorry.

Tony LambertVice President Client Engineering

Tricia was introduced to me as one of the best trainers. After having participated in Tricia's sessions, she masterfully delivers by bringing forth engagement, thinking outside the box, and providing key insights in a self-revealing flawless execution overlaid with fun and genuine interest. As she is willing to share her plethora of experience, I have often turned to her as a mentor and guide.

“Silent gratitude isn’t very much use to anyone.” ~Gertrude Stein

I have been upfront that I am able to help others because I was lucky enough to have people help me.  For as long as I can remember, I have been surrounded by amazing colleagues and friends that continue to challenge and encourage me.  Therefore, my goal became to pay this forward.
