Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Meghan Castillo

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.

Meghan Castillo, an amazing #womaninlearning and Principal Learning Experience Designer at Hubspot joined Sharon for series 25.

During this Hang Ten, Meghan discusses how she has kept very busy at Hubspot, during the pandemic. She has recently been leading global 5 moments of need projects in different areas of the business, including their sales and customer service sides, which has helped Hubspot take more of a systematic approach to better understand what learners are doing, what they need, and shifting their training experiences to more performance-based.

Meghan also shares her experience with Learning Pool’s Learning Record Store (LRS), Learning Locker, and gives us an insight into how the tool has helped them over at Hubspot. If you want to find out more about why LRSs are now becoming an essential part of corporate learning, read Josh Bersin’s blog – The Learning Record Store Comes of Age.

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.
