Q&A with Mike Bentley

I’ve been here 17 years which tops the 13 I spent in London. The industry here is more spread out , less connected, literally and psychologically but there’s a high degree of talent here . It tends to be auto centric but that’s obvious. Big agencies solving big client problems but more singular . I have no idea how I once oversaw seven different clients .

Hey folks - Does anyone have any recommendations for online tutors, coaches based in India in the technical space that I could connect and pay on an hourly basis? I'm looking to connect with someone to help me fill in the knowledge gaps that I'm going to encounter at a new work role in AWS Azure cloud /solutions architect/DevOps space.I'm mostly self learning but if I could brainstorm with a tutor or coach I feel it would be more effective.
