Why I’m Attending-Dave Ryan (@davethehrczar)

  • Why did you sign up for HRevolution 2011?

I attended the 2010 version of HREvolution as a treat for myself. I had wanted to attend a so-called unconference and see what all the buzz was about. I did so and simply had an amazing time, met some great people, and have built some wonderful friendships from the event. So now going forward the bar has been set. My expectations for this year are exponentially greater than they were for last year.

Since last year, I have met a number of the folks who will be in attendance. I am looking forward to seeing them again, and meeting many folks face to face for the first time.

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

My expectations are two fold. I always enjoy meeting people and expanding my network. Secondly, I hope to come away from the weekend with new ideas, fresh approaches and innovative ways of attacking matters that are in front of me, or matters that will be put in front of me.

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

The one thing I am looking forward to from the entire event, is being in the space, where this vibe/energy is being created. When you share space and thoughts with a group of like minded people it creates an atmosphere, a buzz which is palpable. Being there and sharing that experience is invigorating, and I am most excited to share in this.

  • Any other random comments? 🙂

HREvolution 2011 will be a place where old friends meet, new friends are made, and thoughts and ideas are shared, and perhaps someone doing something just a little outrageous, but yet still fun. – Sign me up!

On a personal note I did write a post about attending last year. If you care to look at that you can find it here.

Be sure to connect with Dave before the event on Twitter @davethehrczar.
