Episode 006: Brent Schlenker, Chief Learning Officer



This is Brent’s backstory…

If you’re not in the learning or training industry, you may have never heard of Brent Schlenker, Chief Learning Officer for Litmos  – but you would benefit if you did. Brent is a warm person who loves to chat, he also is always looking to the future of the field. He seems to embrace change. This is a guy, if you see him at a conference, he’s probably live streaming something with Periscope or some other new technology.

I ended up talking with Brent twice for this show, the first time when all was said and done, we found out that I hadn’t captured anything. As disappointed as I was, it rolled off Brent easily – I’m pretty sure that he said, ‘Great, I’ll do better the next time. I love to talk!’ I appreciated his attitude and you know what, I think you will appreciate this second take. It’s not only better, it’s more interesting.
