Welcome back to episode two of HR Insights: The Podcast series four!


This week brings another exciting conversation, our host Stuart Elliott speaks to Founder and CEO of Gnowbe, So-Young Kang about her platform and the amazing scholarship they are facilitating.


So-Young is a people loving, organisation focused, ideas person. She comes with a wealth of experience in Transformational Design and is passionate in seeing people flourish. In 2016 So-Young started Gnowbe a, pioneering mobile micro-learning and micro-authoring platform to help people perform better. Gnowbe's approach is bite-sized, collaborative and drives 'on-the-job application' for greater performance. Gnowbe is all about learning-by-doing. We do this through a simple approach based on adult learning science called Know - Think - Apply - Share.  A fantastic tool for our audience to get on board with.
