The HRevolution is Coming


August 21, 2009

Are you a HR blogger or aspiring HR blogger?  Do you follow other HR pros on Twitter but never had a chance to meet them all?  Then the HRevolution is for you! 

What IS the HRevolution?  It is an “un-conference” for HR bloggers and aspiring bloggers to have an opportunity to meet and also share ideas on HR and social media.  Created by Ben Eubanks (of UpstartHR and on Twitter @beneubanks) and me, the idea came from hearing that traditional conferences may not be addressing HR issues and social media in the way that bloggers do.  So, HRevolution was born.

HRevolution will be held November 6- 7, 2009 in Louisville, KY.  The committee (Trish, Ben, Steve Boese, and Crystal Peterson) decided on Louisville because it is the most central location based on the interest we’ve seen.  We’re near to finalizing the location and I promise, it will be outstanding! 

HERE’S WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP:  If you are interested in HRevolution, we’re looking for volunteers to present topics (nothing too formal though, these will be conversational in nature) as well as sponsors. 

Check out the HRevolution site at  Be sure to sign in as a member if you’re interested in coming.  Also, there are sections where you can contribute your ideas, volunteer to be a presenter, or offer to be a sponsor.  If you would like to be a company sponsor, please contact me, Trisha McFarlane via Direct message on Twitter (@TrishMcFarlane).  Hope to see you there!


  • Hi Trish,

    I’m so glad to hear that the HRevolution’s has a confirmed date and time. Nothing but good things can come from a roomful of energized and creative HR pros sharing ideas and supporting each other’s growth. Hopefully SHRM and other organizations take note and start doing a better job of empowering their members.

    I can’t guarantee it but I’ll do my best to be there this fall. Good luck and continued success.

    ¡Viva la revolución!

  • Really jazzed about this on so many levels. I’ll be meeting Crystal Peterson at SHRMKY to firm up plans, ideas, sponsorship. Fusion Frames will be exhibiting at booth #438 if anyone wants to come by and see me. If not, then we’ll see you in November or listen for you on HR Happy Hour. As Victorio said: ¡Viva la revolución!
