Things We Sell

From the blog

Who we are

Simply put, Nomad8 is a home for consultants. But it’s a pretty special model—a unique organisation of like-minded and passionate people working together, for themselves and for each other.

One of NZ’s leading Agile coaches, Sandy is an accomplished presenter, published book author and former Olympic athlete. A force of positive energy, Sandy is hands-on, no-nonsense and steeped in Agile. She’s the co-author of “Creating Great Teams – How Self-Selection Lets People Excel” (Pragrog, 2015).

Agile Coach, trainer and presenter, book author and all round great guy. David brings a fresh and fun approach to coaching and facilitation. He often loses on the football pitch, wins at poker tables and takes every opportunity to injure himself creatively. He’s the co-author of “Creating Great Teams – How Self-Selection Let’s People Excel” (Pragrog, 2015).

Rob Dongol

Rob works with product teams and across entire organisations, helping clients discover a way of working that best suits them. He’s passionate about about flying small planes and the organisational power of Portfolio Kanban.

Richard Scott Will-Harknett

Richard is an optimistic pragmatist. For him it’s about just doing what it takes to create a more effective environment to sustainably deliver great outcomes. He’s applied his free range approach in start-ups through to multinationals. He believes the “3Cs” refer to: cakes, coffee and conversation…

Anthony brings calm pragmatism to a project team. Tactfully navigating the ups and downs of corporate ridiculousness, Anthony can coach reluctant Agile appointees into a smoothly functioning dream team. He genuinely loves Lean UX.

A Digital Strategist with a strong agency background, Brenda is stealthily integrating Agile into the creative sector.

Tony O’Halloran

Tony uses his background in development to bridge the gap between IT and the rest of the business. He’s an Agile coach and facilitator who’s not afraid to address dysfunction, but always brings positivity and a sense of fun to his work. He is a terrible ukulele player.

Thomas Lissajoux

Thomas helps teams foster focus, creativity & adaptability to launch products that matter. Having seen his share of effective and not quite effective patterns in IT teams and organisations, he helps build bridges (between people) and hunts elephants (in the room).

Shirley Tricker

Shirley believes that people are at the heart of Agile. Technology is about people helping people, and Shirley brings a ‘people-first’ perspective to any engagement. What drives your people? What do they bring to the team? What would help them do great work? She then adapts Agile for your people, rather than the other way around.
