So if you need an engaging keynote for your virtual (live-stream webinars) or in-house Face to Face events, or if you have a Kick-off, a convention, an annual conference, a meet up or any other training need, then get Nigel on board.

Nigel trains individuals and companies all over the world. He also joins Podcasts, radio and media events chatting tech.

Why companies higher Nigel

Let’s start with what Nigel is NOT. He’s not your plain run-of-the-mill, death by power point trainer, where hundred’s of bullet points are read for you. There’s no bland or stereotypical training where you loose hours of your life!

Companies hire Nigel to fire up their team, so they gain the self-assurance to apply in their work. You get straight to the point clear explanations, with examples in Nigel’s passionate, raw and fun style, where you’ll learn both the theory and get a hands-on learning experience. 

No matter the level your company is at (beginning or taking further steps), Nigel has training for you. You’ll get one of the worlds leading Kubernetes & Docker trainers, who’s helped well over one million tech users globally.
