You'll need to take these with a grain of salt - but give me a call, or meet me at a conference, and make up your own mind.
From lectures and conferences
"James exudes subject matter credibility, and was well received by our Testing community. His Agile session was particularly popular, and appealed to both the less and the more experienced members of the audience." David Moore, Test Practice Lead, Aviva Life
"Outstanding presentation... easily one of the best at conference." Conference participant
"Great presenter, good stories, excellent presenting skills and timing, good humor." Conference participant
From people who have come to my classes
"I attended James Lyndsay's 2-day exploratory testing tutorial and it was very useful and fun. If you expect loads of theory to be thrown at you - don't bother. But if you want lots of hands-on exercises, eye-openers and discussions, combined with a refreshing view on testing, this is the course for you. On top of that, James is a very engaging 'teacher', and an allround nice guy :-)" Zeger Van Hese - Senior Test Manager
"Since real life projects push us to optimise testing to do as much as possible in the same amount of time, Exploratory Testing seems a natural step forward. James Lyndsay's class gave me plenty of practical tips and tricks about how to manage and execute Exploratory Testing. And, most importantly, how to measure improvements and catch the 'stuck moments'. No optimization is good unless it really gives results. Thank you for all the shared experiences and practical knowledge that allowed me to implement ET right after I took the class and for the tips when to and when not to use ET. Taking part in your class was a very pleasant and useful experience!"Mira Razman, Senior Test Lead
"The interactive tools really demonstrated the different approaches and considerations required for each of the techniques we were taught. Without the practical examples, application of the theory in the future would have been far more difficult." ET class participant
