I’m in a small, select group of people. I attended HRevolution last year and really enjoyed myself. As one of the founders of the event, I think it’s amazing that some people are so rabid to attend. My buddy Bryon Abramowitz wrote a great post about why he’s going to be attending this year. You need to check it out. He talks about the value, the people, and YOU.

Sounds pretty cool, don’t you think? Yeah, me, too. Click here to read Bryon’s post on his top five reasons to attend.

Someone else wrote about HRevolution. Wait a minute, it was me this time! I interviewed a handful of attendees from the original event and another group of people who are planning to attend this time around. I asked them questions like…

  • Why did you sign up?
  • What do you expect out of the event?
  • If you could say something to get someone off the fence, what would it be?

It was a lot of fun to poke into peoples’ minds and find out what they’re looking for in the event. Make sure you check it out: HRevolution-why you have to come.

HRevolution Logistics

Jason Seiden, one of our illustrious planners, has put together some helpful information for those wondering about the logistics of the event. I’ll link out to his post on the topic, but I wanted to clarify a few things first.

  • Dress code is casual. I (and many others) wore jeans for the first event. What you wear isn’t going to matter!
  • The ticket price includes food and drinks throughout the day. We have some good stuff planned for that, so don’t you worry!
  • We’re looking for individual sponsors. Some of our hopeful attendees can’t afford to travel and would greatly benefit from a small sponsorship. For instance, we have someone who attended the first event but can’t make it this time. She is sponsoring someone else to attend in her stead. If you’d like to do something similar, let me know.

I’m sure there’s more I’m forgetting to cover, but I’m riffing here. Anyway, please check out Jason’s post on logistics to find out more.

HRevolution planning

Want to make your trip worthwhile? This event has the potential to blow you away, but what you do after you leave is going to make all the difference in the world. Yes, I’m aware that we’re more than a month away from the next event, but you can still start preparing, right?

I read an amazing post on Web Worker Daily that was perfect for the people who’ve decided to attend HRevolution. Here’s a sneak peek:

How many times have you returned from a conference only to file the materials and never look at them again? Attending the event is only half of the equation in making a conference pay off. The other half is what you do with the information after you return home.

A great conference leaves you feeling empowered, inspired and ready to take on whatever comes your way. And then you arrive home feeling overwhelmed as you unpack, do laundry, open snail mail and handle all the mundane stuff that needs doing. Not only that, but also you have so much information that you hardly know where to begin to put it to use.
