Sébastien Dostie

Manager from 1999 to 2014, Sébastien Dostie supervised many teams over the years in different industries from commercial construction to web and video games. Sébastien discovered Agile methodology in the video game industry working on major production such as Deus Ex, FarCry, Darksiders and Star Citizen. Even if Agile method was at its early stage in this industry, he was amazed by the way it was improving teams collaboration but most importantly how it was bringing ownership and empowerment to them focussing on goals instead of a list of tasks.SebDostie

Sébastien is now a productivity tools consultant and software trainer. His passion for the organization of work and communication skills make him a dynamic, efficient and greatly appreciated trainer.
