Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Laura Overton

Introducing Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’

We know that the impact of the recent global pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding it are putting strain across all areas of business, including 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 several learning professionals to discuss how they are in general and how they’re coping with the current climate.

For series 27, Sharon was joined by co-creator of Emerging Stronger – a masterclass series and community for L&D Leaders in a place to make or influence change in their organization.

Laura Overton has been well-known in the industry for a long time and ran a research program for over 15 years that explored how learning and innovation can deliver business impact. She recently stepped away from that and used the time to establish what she’s passionate about and how she can impact the future of learning. She describes the past couple of years as fantastic, as she’s been able to think differently about learning innovation and how to raise up the next generation of learning leaders that can impact business in the future. 

Laura also talks about the new successful masterclass she has been working on with two other #womeninlearning which is on how to emerge stronger from a pandemic.



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.
