Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with John Hinchliffe

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 will consist 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 15, Sharon was joined by John Hinchliffe, Talent Manager at Jam Pan as he shared what he has been up to during the COVID months, including moving jobs and countries.

Trying to build a community with others in the industry, John has organized a weekly get together every Friday, called the ‘L&D global Zoom meet up’, where he’s had over 500 people from all over the world, coming together in a non-sales environment, to describe what they’re doing. Find out more about how he’s staying connected in this Hang Ten.

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.
