DisruptHR Chicago Spring 2019

Wed, April 17, 2019 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM


DisruptHR Chicago is an information exchange designed to energize, inform and empower executives, business leaders and professionals in the vast and important fields of Human Resources. We are about blowing up the norms to which we’ve fallen prey, innovating, and creating a more meaningful, rewarding, and engaging experience from this thing called work.

The Event

10 speakers with a recognized voice and something really disruptive to share will be given 5 minutes each to wow you – they’ll do it while 20 slides advance automatically every 15 seconds. It’s energetic, thought-provoking, and high-impact. We’ve identified some of the best in the area to take the stage.

Here’s an example from our September 2018 event just to whet your appetite: VIDEO

The ticket price includes beverages (adult and otherwise), food, incredible content and awesome networking opportunities interspersed throughout the evening. And all of it hosted at Chicago’s premier entrepreneurial hub – 1871!
