Meet the nomads.
We are proud to be the highest integrity, least bullshit consultants you'll encounter.
What is Nomad8
Nomad8 is a home for consultants. We share our knowledge, resources and experiences. We help each other, learn from each other, have each other’s backs. We are each other’s ‘other’ family – the one we get to choose.
We like to think our model is pretty unique, a tightly-wound organization of like-minded, passionate people working together for the collective good of the business and the people we work with.
David is a talented Agile coach, facilitator and trainer. He designed a new and innovative method for forming new teams with Sandy Mamoli and authored the book 'Creating Great Teams: How Self-Selection Let's People Excel'. He brings a fresh and fun approach to his work, and when he's not helping Agile teams, you might find him out running half-marathons.
Gill loves product management and business agility. She brings her background in UX and design thinking to the teams and organisations she works with, helping them to build empathy for users and to create products their customers will love. Despite years of experience inside the bank environments, Gill approaches life with a healthy sense of humour and infectious laughter.
Jared is an experienced Agile Coach who loves to help individuals, teams and organisations be successful. He's worked in teams as a software engineer and business analyst and is grounded in Lean, Kanban, Design thinking and Agile. He brings all this valuable experience to his coaching practice.
Anthony is a master of tactful navigation when it comes to the ups and downs of corporate contexts. He can coach reluctant Agile appointees into a smoothly functioning dream team with his calm, pragmatic approach. He is a certified trainer of Lean Agile Procurement practices. Ant shares his enthusiasm and knowledge as a coach, facilitator and trainer with organisations and teams in Wellington.
Gavin is an Agile Coach and trainer who has been around the block many, many times. He is grounded in practice and loves helping people build the right thing at the right time, whilst feeling purposeful and fulfilled along the way. Working with organisations to make this possible is what gets him up in the morning, well, along with buying records.
Paulius is the only Europe-based nomad at this point. He brings his experience in product management and Agile coaching to help teams improve, experiment and work towards delivering value continuously. He is passionate about personal development and is a co-author of the personal growth framework for Agile Coaches.
Harry is all about helping teams and organisations thrive. Through a love of learning, coaching and curiosity, he helps people and teams do their best work, and have fun doing it. He loves product development almost as much as he loves mountain-biking. Though he's very clear about the risk profile of both these things.
A digital strategist with a strong agency background, Brenda brings extensive skills and experience to any new challenge. From being Head of Digital and Innovation at NZ On Air, Brenda then created the National Strategy for Financial Capability for the Retirement Commission. She applies some coaching magic to a few select clients and keeps the Nomad8 machine humming as well.
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 and fearless mountain biker.
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”. Sandy is an international keynote speaker and a member of the Global Agile Alliance Board.
If you are an experienced consultant, want to work in a manager-less organisation with full autonomy and are passionate about agile, and are not a tosser, we'd love to hear from you.
