Boris de Jong

Trainer and storyteller at Gladwell Academy
Change is a story we need to keep telling each other.



He was patient, knew a lot, humour at the right time. Very nice teacher!

That opening talk by Boris was perfect; too bad he had to leave shortly after. He was a great addition to the event!

Boris de Jong is a trainer of SAFe and Scrum and a content specialist at Gladwell Academy.

With a background in the political sciences, in journalism and in theatre, he works to make the abstract aspects of the Agile way of working and the transformation process more tangible and relatable.

For this goal, Boris uses his talents as a storyteller and his ability to conceptualize abstract processes in his role as SAFe trainer. With an entertaining narrative style and personal involvement, he makes Agile methods and principles tangible and relevant to people’s professional context.

He also works to craft personal, human-centered narratives for the content streams at Gladwell Academy - working on clear, explanatory pieces laced with practical example, illustrative metaphor and telling anecdote.
