I recently had the opportunity to participate in an event called DisruptHR Cleveland. This was one of the most amazing experiences I have had in many years. If was an event pulled together by Frank and Tammy Zupan, Lauren Rudman and Michelle Salis in an effort to bring HR professionals together in Cleveland to think about HR differently. The format was Ignite-style which means you bring together numerous presenters and give each one 5 minutes to present on his/her topic. The 5 minutes is made up of 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.
As someone who speaks publicly, a LOT, my biggest fear was that I would not be able to shut up after 5 minutes. Luckily for the crowd, I stayed on task and on point. I invite you to watch my presentation here. My topic was “Disrupt YOU” and in it I talk about why and how HR pros can disrupt your own career.
Feel free to share and if you’re interested in hosting a DisruptHR event in your city, you can get more information here.
