Emily Berry
SkillSoft Trainer

After majoring in Japanese at Ohio State University I was prepared to move to Asia, become fluent in Japanese and unleash myself onto the world as a relentless corporate lawyer. Instead of moving to Japan, I became an instructor at New Horizons in Indianapolis, IN. My background in language provided me with a nice foundation of structure, syntax and protocols that I could translate into the technical world. At New Horizons, I moved into the database and web development realm where I became thrilled with the interrelations of network, language and data. I find the fact that you can logically collect extremely large amounts of data and then come to precise conclusions in milliseconds amazing. After a few years in Indianapolis, I felt the need to try my hand in the big city so I moved to Manhattan. As the Manager of Education and Training at a large executive search organization I managed multiple training initiatives including adding distance learning and web conferencing into our training portfolio. Computer based training and Web conferencing were new ideas in the world of corporate training in the early nineties. Back then, it was a difficult shift for many of the learners in my organization. We persevered and were able to deliver good quality training in many different formats to our offices scattered across the country. All of these experiences are a natural fit for what I do today at Skillsoft: deliver quality technical and project management training via the Web.

I absolutely love training. It is invigorating to break down complicated material into concepts that people can apply to their lives and careers. I try to approach every class with enthusiasm and attention to detail in the hopes that students will not only learn but will also enjoy the experience. Although I don't deliver my classes in Japanese, I hope you will join me in our Skillsoft classroom very soon.
