You wanted it, now you can have it! Here’s the preliminary agenda for HRevolution. As the event gets closer, keep an eye on this blog for more information about the speakers and their sessions so you can start planning which ones you’d like to see. If you see a session title and you are curious about what it entails, stay tuned. I’ll be interviewing speakers here in the coming weeks and you’ll be able to decide which sessions will be the best for you before you even arrive!
