The Community's go-to trainer...

...for Kubernetes and Docker

Nigel’s “badass”… sorry we mean “renegade”… approach to teaching tech gets inside your head, inspiring you to have the confidence to take your next steps.

So if you need an engaging keynote, a trainer for a Kick-off, a conference, a meet up or any other training need (either in-house or virtual), or if you need help drawing foot fall to your vendor booth, get Nigel on board.

Nigel trains individuals and companies all over the world. He also joins Podcasts, radio and media events… Oh and don’t forget his legendary Kubernetes Quiz!

Why companies hire Nigel

Let’s start with what Nigel is NOT. He’s not your plain run-of-the-mill, death by power point trainer. You won’t get 101 bullet points to read on slides. You won’t get a bland or stereotypical training session – those ones where you loose hours from your life!

Companies hire Nigel to fire up their team. You will gain the self-assurance to apply what you learn in your work. You’ll get straight to the point and 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.
