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, or if you have a Kick-off, a convention, an annual conference, a meet up or any other training need (either in-house or virtual), 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 Pub Quiz!

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. You won’t get 101 bullet points to read on slides. You won’t get a bland or stereotypical training session where you loose hours of 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.

Kubernetes Pub Quiz

New, unique and already super-popular

If you’ve had too many training sessions and you and your team have become a little bored with presentations and you’re looking for something different, then take a break from the class room with Nigel’s Kubernetes Pub Quiz. 

It’s fun-loving learning in a relaxed setting. This just maybe  the answer you’re looking for.
