DisruptHR Chicago Announces Speaker Line-Up For Sold Out Event


DisruptHR Chicago brings 250+ local professionals together in order to help area businesses unleash human potential in the workplace.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 19, 2017

DisruptHR Chicago, the provocative, forward-thinking group behind the HR industry's most innovative idea exchange, today announced the speaker line-up for its sold out event, DisruptHR Chicago Spring 2017.

The popular and influential event, being held at Chicago's tech incubator 1871, brings together some of the boldest and most inventive minds to the stage for a rapid-fire, ignite-style evening of stimulating presentations that will challenge the tired and outdated practices HR professionals face on a daily basis.

"I initially brought DisruptHR to Chicago because I saw the potential of aligning this exciting format to the unique innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem in Chicago," said Nicole Dessain, Co-Founder and President of DisruptHR Chicago. "Together with our Board of Directors, countless volunteers, supportive sponsors and thought provoking speakers, we continue to grow our tribe of innovators that believes in changing the status quo of the workplace. The conversations we are leading are not only from HR for HR but are relevant to the broader business community."

Ten speakers will have five minutes each to present their ideas to the audience, but they'll do it while twenty slides advance automatically every fifteen seconds. It's energetic, enthusiastic and spirited. Nancy Harris, Co-Founder and Secretary of DisruptHR Chicago, said, "Our audiences love that this format is totally different from every other HR event and walk away feeling motivated, empowered and refreshed to implement these radical, process-changing ideas."

  •     Eric Doctors, Senior Vice President, Leadership and Organizational Development, Leo Burnett
