Emily is a UK-based independent Agile consultant, coach, trainer and speaker. She focuses on creating the right environments for people and teams to succeed in creating great outcomes for their users. She does this by enabling effective collaboration, agile ways of working, embedding communities of practice and leading initiatives for growing skills and capabilities. All of which help create sustainable change.

Before starting Tacit in 2014, she was the Head of Agile Delivery at Government Digital Service (GDS), where she set the standard of effective agile delivery. At GDS, she modelled the now widely-followed approach to communities of practice, which is illustrated in her book Building Successful Communities of Practice and has helped many organisations benefit from them.

She is a regular contributor to the digital community. She regularly speaks at conferences and has founded several meetups, including Agile in the Ether, Liverpool Digital People, Agile on the Bench and Agile in Leeds.

She blogs at emilywebber.co.uk and lists a bunch of side projects at ewebber.co.uk.
