Like a proud parent seeing his or her child climb the stairs of the school bus to head off to their first day of kindergarten as a ‘big kid’, out into the world to seek their destiny, I think of HRevolution as growing and evolving in a similar way. From small and uncertain beginnings in an old, historic hotel in Louisville, to Chicago, Atlanta, and then on to Las Vegas, with each event the HRevolution grows, adapts, and, well evolves, to try and meet the needs of the smart, innovative, and connected Human Resources professional.
The next installment of the HRevolution, set for Sunday October 7, 2012 in Chicago, promises to build upon the last four events, add some new and interesting twists, and ultimately result in the one true ‘can’t miss’ event for the HR community. HRevolution is about a new way of thinking about the workplace, about HR, and about talent, and equally important it is about a different way of meeting, connecting, and learning from your friends and colleagues.
We will cover topics ranging from social networking and HR technology, management and leadership, influence and career management and more. But whatever the topic, you can be assured the session leaders will challenge you to think differently, while not attempting to tell you what you should think. And you can also be assured the less formal, more interactive and engaging format will make you think, encourage you to participate, and help connect you to the rest of your fellow HRevolutionaries in a way much, much different than other events.
HRevolution is my favorite event of the year. Sure I am biased. But I bet after you come, it will be your favorite event too.
I hope to see you in Chicago on October 7th.
