In 2002, Gino started working with some of Belgium's most prominent Agile promoters. Very soon after that, he joined the Belgian XP/Agile User Group and became actively involved in promoting Agile techniques and practices, because he believes in their effectiveness. As a consultant he has shifted his practice to coaching individuals and organizations as they embrace Agile and is now responsible for the Agile competency centre at EPAM Systems. Gino strongly relies on his passion for team dynamics, his experience in leadership positions, and his technical expertise. Gino is actively involved as a participant and speaker in a number of Agile user groups in Canada. He likes to spend his spare time with family and friends enjoying cycling, travel, art, music, poetry and bragging about the supreme quality of Belgian beer.
