Darren Hockley, Managing Director
Hi, I’m Darren. I founded DeltaNet International (the company behind LearningNest) in 1999, to capitalise on the emerging e-Learning sector. Prior to this, I worked for several private and public sector organisations, where I was able to hone my technical skills as well commercial acumen and leadership abilities.
Today, DeltaNet is acknowledged as the leading provider of Compliance and HSSE e-Learning solutions to customers around the world, and I’m proud to have played a pivotal role in developing the business. I use what I’ve learned along the way to speak at e-Learning and Compliance conferences and contribute to publications as a thought leader.
When I’m not working, I somehow manage to juggle family life and the demands of four children with my other interests: walking, cycling, Aston Villa FC, and watching international cricket.

We moved our legal support to WorkNest (formerly Law at Work) having previously used a time and line law firm. It was important, though, that an all-inclusive fee structure did not come at the expense of quality. Thankfully we’ve been delighted with the service we’ve received from WorkNest.”
What we recognised in WorkNest is the background that they have. They are able to supply knowledge and experience in a number of disciplines, which enables us to develop our business in a way that’s safe, to do it on time and with a quality to it.”

Pineapple have worked with the team at WorkNest (formerly Law at Work) since 2003, and we have built a trusted partnership together.
