Sofie is an Agile Coach and Facilitator at Accenture - Solutions IQ in the Netherlands, with 8 years of consultancy experience and certifications in Scaled Agile Framework, Scrum Framework and the International Consortium for Agile.
She started her career in 2008 as a Microsoft application developer, and later grew into a technology project manager role. After experiencing the waterfall way of working for 5 years, Sofie was convinced that the Agile way of working was more in line with her mindset, and therefore made the transition. She believes that an Agile mindset empowers teams to perform at their highest. One of her biggest passions is building an environment that unlocks the autonomy, ownership and innovation of all team members.
As an Agile coach, Sofie works with teams and individuals to enable them to take the next step in their Agile journey using practices of teaching, mentoring, coaching and facilitating. The rest of her working time is spent providing training in Agile, mentoring aspiring SIQ talent, and supporting the SIQ NL team in spreading the business agility values internally and externally.
Sofie is originally from Beirut, she has a bachelor in Computer Science and completed her masters in Management of Information Technology in the Netherlands. In her free time, Sofie likes to travel to places she hasn’t been to before, read books, and working on improving her programming skills.
