My engagement in technology has led me to serve several conferences in various capacities. Next to my helping in the organization of many conferences in the field every year, I'm the program director for the Speaker Reimbursement Program of the Agile Alliance since 2006. I have been a member of the Agile Alliance board from 2003 to 2007. I chaired the steering committee for the XP conference series from 2009-2013, I'm still serving this committee as a regular member. 

Please find more information of my speaking engagement at those conferences at publications.
