Why I’m attending-Beth McDonald (@hr_beth)

Beth McDonaldToday I’m continuing to highlight some of our attendees. I’ll be touching base with newbies to HRevolution as well as the grizzled veterans to hear some of their insights and hopes for the coming event.

In this post I reached out to my twitter buddy Beth McDonald about her first HRev. Her excitement for the event is contagious, and I think a lot of people are going to enjoy meeting her for the first time (myself included).

Why did you sign up for HRevolution 2011?

I remember seeing all the tweets about it last year and the whole idea of an “unconference” intrigued me. I wanted to jump in and experience it with some of the amazing folks that I’ve “met” online in the last year or so. I’m hoping some of their brilliance will rub off on me!

  • What do you expect to get out of the event (lessons learned, better connections, etc.)?

I expect to be challenged, to think, to learn and to come away with some great, practical ideas that I can introduce to my team. I also expect to establish some wonderful friendships.

  • What’s the #1 thing you’re looking forward to (meeting someone, a specific session or two, etc.)?

I’m most looking forward to meeting so many of the folks who make my twitter stream so much fun to read.

  • Any other random comments?

Thank you so much to Ben, Trish, Crystal & Steve for all your hard work in putting on this event! I absolutely cannot wait!

Thanks to Beth for her kind words and enthusiasm! You can connect with Beth on Twitter or LinkedIn before the event!
