About Nomadic

Nomadic builds digital academies that help organizations use learning to accelerate growth, drive transformation, and better serve their employees, their customers, and the world. We co-created the Josh Bersin Academy, used by 30,000 HR professionals worldwide, and our academies have powered transformation and solved the trickiest learning challenges at IBM, Citi, and other Fortune 500 companies.

Our Story

In May 2002, Nomadic founders Matt and Tim were teaching English in Guangzhou, China. The vibe in the room wasn’t great. Executives weren’t excited about taking time out of their day to learn English. And the pleather binders with the class materials weren’t exactly driving engagement.

Matt decided to try something new: an exercise where the students needed to debate real issues from their daily work. Instead of a teacher talking at them, they would engage directly with their colleagues on topics that mattered. All of a sudden, the classroom was buzzing. And the idea that would become Nomadic was born.

Nomadic was founded to help companies and institutions build learning that takes advantage of the way adults learn best: in groups, engaging with their peers. Tim and Matt have now spent more than a decade building academies that tackle the Fortune 500’s toughest challenges and help organizations like AB InBev, IBM, and Citi upskill people for a new working world, all through deeply social learning.

Things have changed a lot since those early days in China. But all Nomadic’s work still comes back to one thing: a deep belief that learning can do great things––if you make it meaningful and get learners buzzing.
