Who are you ?
Bonjour. Je m'appelle Nick.

What do you do for living ?
I am Chief Emoji & Gif Officer. I set a good example to all of my colleagues by spending 95% of my day posting gifs and emojis in Slack. I also like to stand around whiteboards pretentiously pointing my fingers at lines and arrows whilst stroking my chin. When no-one is looking, I sometimes even try to write a bit of code.

What do you want talk about at Lean Kanban France ?
I want to talk about expert techniques for posting gifs and emojis in Slack but that talk didn't get accepted (if you want to hear that talk there is still time for you to pressure the organisers). Instead I will be talking about Sociotechnical Architecture patterns.
What do I mean by Sociotechnical Architecture patterns, though? If you like a mix of organisation design, software architecture, and understanding how to create autonomous teams in highly-connected agile organisations, this talk will get you excited.

What will make you say 'waouh' at the end of the conference ?
If someone dressed as a giant 'smiling face with heart eyes' emoji comes in and gives me a big hug.

What will make you think that attendees have learnt a lot during your session ?
If they send me lots of tweets using only emojis and gifs.

What is your favorite word?

What is the word you hate?

What is the sound, the noise that you love?
I love the beautiful sound of French people speaking in their elegant accent, especially people from Paris.

What is your favorite oath, swear word or blasphemy?
The poop emoji.

Who is the man or woman to illustrate a new banknote?
The 'rolling on the floor laughing' emoji

What is the job that you would not have liked to do?
Brexit negotiator

What is the plant, tree or animal in which you would like to be reincarnated?
The 'smiling cat face with heart eyes' emoji

If God exists, what would you like, after your death, hear him to say?
In an elegant French voice: "Nick. Je suis ton père".

What is the missing question ?
What is your favourite emoji?
