We know that the impact of the recent global pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding it are putting strain on 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.

At Learning Pool, we work with some of the most impressive client companies,  so we thought this idea fit perfectly.
