Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Helen Marshall

Introducing Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’

We know that the impact of the recent global pandemic and the uncertainty that surrounds it is putting strain across all areas of business, and that includes Learning & Development. Thus inspiring Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’ series.

This video series consists of informal five-minute chats and will give you a great opportunity to feel connected to others in the industry and gain a rare glimpse into their day-to-day lives. Sharon Claffey Kaliouby will be hosting the series and will be joined by a number of learning professionals to discuss how they are in general and how they’re coping with the current climate.

For series 23, Sharon was joined by Learning Pool’s, Learning Design Manager, Helen Marshall, as she talks about a true ‘women in learning moment – “staying in the driver’s seat of her career”.  She shares the background in her transition into a new workplace during COVID, having just come back from maternity leave. Sharon and Helen also discuss the factors that first attracted them to Learning Pool, including the strong company values (Do the right thing, We’ve got your back & Build to grow) and culture.

Watch the video below as Helen shares her great advice on getting yourself out there and known in the industry, as her mother once said: “If you don’t put your hat in the ring it’s never going to get chosen.”


What is a Hang Ten?

According to the Wiki dictionary, a Hang Ten is ‘a surfing maneuver in which a surfer stands and hangs all his or her toes over the nose of the board.’ It’s a maneuver all surfers want to achieve on a longboard and requires great skill and expertise. At Learning Pool, a number of our innovative products are very water-driven, we have our LXP Stream, Waves, Rapids, and Flo. We also work with some of the most impressive client companies,  so we thought this idea fit perfectly.
