Josh Penzell is the senior director of product management for leadership and business at Skillsoft. He has spent more than 15 years coaching sales teams, developing global strategy, leading cross-functional teams and facilitating organizational innovation. He propels learning initiatives to the next level by delivering results and behaviors rather than spending resources on creating content. Josh created and launched the First Time Manager Career Journey and oversees the Leadership and Business Content Library at Skillsoft.
Josh's unique way of seeing how things connect leads him to develop novel learning experiences; for example, a just-in-time voice assistant for vehicle manufacturers at Zoox aimed to reduce errors and time wasted. He refers to this as TheaterThink, because just like lawyers, engineers, doctors and others use unique approaches to solve business problems, his theater career shapes how he delivers value. Josh is a big thinker and long-term strategist who builds new programs for scaling and automation, such as developing a mechanism that enabled the offline Amazon Alexa business to grow by 1,000% in one year.
