A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER AND CEO
“I founded Skill Boosters in 1999 to bring engaging film and television production values to what was then VHS, DVD and CD-ROM-based soft skills training. Our mission hasn't changed, and film-making is still at the heart of everything we do, but the way we distribute our video-based training online around the globe certainly has. Today, Skill Boosters' video-based training is in use by many of the world's leading organisations.
We have learners in 150 countries and courses in 17 languages. Our content is being streamed to the smartphones, tablets, PCs and classrooms of the world. We are passionate about working with like-minded organisations and individuals who share our belief that business and individual success, now and in the future, comes from creating a better workplace where everyone can bring their whole and best self to work, every day.”Bryan De'Ath Founder and CEO at Skill Boosters
