I love it so much that I’ve presented at it four times and then came on to co-organize DisruptHR New York City events.

I mention this because like Sy Sperling — “Remember, I’m not only the Hair Club president, but I’m also a client!” — I know what it’s like to be a speaker and select other speakers. I also know that cultural reference may have fallen flat for you, but guess what? I don’t care.

It’s the stuff of nightmares: public speaking.

While it was never quite my nightmare, it’s not my comfort zone either. Most likely because I’ve only had to speak in front of 150+ people a handful of times. The latest was DisruptHR Cleveland a few weeks ago.

I attended my first DisruptHR event this week [March 31, 2016]. If you’re not familiar with DisruptHR – definitely check it out.
