As a team coach and ways-of-working facilitator in the software industry for over a decade, Ryan has obtained over a dozen coaching and facilitation certifications and has encountered hundreds of tools. It was only when he met Dave on a 5-day trek along the Cape Wrath Trail in the Scottish Highlands in 2015 (there are a lot more synchronicities to this story, but you will have to wait to hear the whole story!) that Ryan discovered to his delight how StrongSuits brings together the best of modern team development under one comprehensive toolset.

Prior to that he was a software developer and senior project manager in multi-national consulting firms.

Mandy Sunner

Born into a strict Indian household as a woman, Mandy defied societal expectations by pursuing a path in Computer Information Systems & Design. This truly was against all odds as she broke free from the confines of traditional expectations and embarked on a journey of determination, learning and growth as a mature student and single parent of two babies.

With this passion, she’s cultivated a diverse skill set to help specialise in nurturing people to work together in practices such as Lean, Agile and Scrum.

Mandy finds fulfilment in guiding teams towards their full potential just as she has been guided towards hers by her intuition in the path of learning and discovery. She is motivated in the knowledge that energy begets energy. She’s been trained and qualified over the years to use skills from business analysis, coaching, teaching (not preaching) and facilitating teams to truly inspect and adapt so to better navigate complexity with clarity and purpose.

All of Mandy’s early learnings have shaped and developed her and as a result she comes with the vigour to help others reach their potential and more.

She enjoys drawing strength from principles such as yoga and meditation which were bestowed upon her from a young age. She finds these practices still help her along her journey especially in an era of information overload. With everything she does she loves to strike a balance and find the best approaches are often set in that sweet spot where an equilibrium can be found. When she worked as a data analyst many years ago they would find patterns in the data and match these data sets. Keen is the eye that is first trained to carry out such technical tasks and as her journey has progressed, she looks for patterns where she can add the most value.
