About nomad8

Meet the nomads.

Uninhibited and unconstrained, our people are not hard to pin down. Just don’t try to put them in a box.

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.
