Nick Hawkins

Digital Specialist

Entrepreneur, innovator and cyber security consultant.

I’ve built businesses and worked with FTSE100 companies showing them how to innovate and use the digital tools of today.

Having lived and worked in London all my life, I’ve now become a digital nomad, travelling and working across the world since 2015.

I’m currently freelancing, either in the country I’m currently in or wherever you would like to fly me to.

    Wanting to avoid university like the plague and itching to work in the real world of IT, I joined Ultraspeed immediately after finishing school. They trained me up on Linux servers and data centre operations so I could support their web hosting customers.
