Skillsoft, the global leader in corporate learning, enters the Bulgarian market with Next Consult to raise workforce readiness for the future



The leading consulting company Next Consult, and SkillSoft, the global leader in corporate learning, today announced a partnership seeking to take advantage of the growing market of corporate eLearning in Bulgaria. The partnership will allow Bulgarian companies of all industries and sizes to access the full range of corporate eLearning available from Skillsoft in the areas of Business & Leadership Skills, Productivity & Collaboration Tools, Technology and Software Development and Compliance. Next Consult’s team will be aligning SkillSoft’s eLearning to the specific needs of their clients to close critical workforce gaps.

Over the last 20 years SkillSoft has trained more than 400 million users with over one billion learning modules. With its library and modalities, Skillsoft offers unrivalled access to the largest and most comprehensive set of corporate training assets in the world. Skillsoft offers over 500,000 multi-modal courses, books and micro-learning modules and 29 different languages.

“The partnership with Skillsoft complements our portfolio of services and allows us to make our clients even more successful. The most important thing for a company to be successful is that it continuously develops its employees. Even if you implement the most innovative systems and models, if your people are not well trained, you will not have sustainable success,” says Toshko Petkov, Partner Business Consulting in Next Consult.

Next Consult chose to partner with SkillSoft due to its unique approach to engaging learners with interactive courses, enlightening videos and practical simulations that enable employees with choice. The authors and presenters in the Skillsoft solutions include Fortune 500 executives, highly respected leadership coaches, and revered experts such as Stephen Covey, Marshall Goldsmith, Gary Hamel as well as world-renowned university professors.

“We are impressed with Next Consult’s experience in the areas of management consulting, performance management and organizational structures,” stated Chad Gaydos, Chief Operating Officer of Skillsoft. “SkillSoft’s partnership with Next Consult aims to provide best-in class eLearning to Bulgarian companies, equipping their employees with a skillset that prepares them well for the future.”
