    THE PIONEERS. YOUR COACHES.

    THE CHEERFUL ACADEMY ADVENTURER.

    DANIEL OGL, Trainer Lobster_data

    Academy@lobster.de


    Enjoys dropping the beat on the turntables. Without missing a beat in the Academy. Happy to help. Responsive and proactive.

    PRAGMATIC. PRACTICAL. PLEASED TO MEET YOU.

    THOMAS NEFF, Trainer Lobster_data

    Academy@lobster.de


    A hint of practicality never goes amiss. And definitely not with a dollop of open-mindedness. And a dash of optimism and dependability. The whole package. Not the worst prerequisites for being a trainer.

    YOU COULD DO IT THAT WAY. AND YOU PROBABLY CAN.

    LUCAS LINKE, Trainer Lobster_pro

    Academy@lobster.de


    Lobster customer turned Lobster specialist. Who better to offer practical training courses than that? Can’t think of anyone? We can't either.
