Who are the people that are taking the lead in disrupting the future of work?
They’re the official Disruptors (Organizers) of DisruptHR events held in cities around the world. Each week, we’ll introduce you to one of these intelligent, inspiring, and beautiful people (okay, pick two) who have stepped up, and volunteered to organize a Disrupt HR event in their city.

Who are you, and what do you do in your “day job”?
Scott Hamilton, CEO Executive Next Practices Institute, also Managing Director of the best strategy organization and team in the world – Nextworks Strategy – just Google the term “executive next practices” and you’ll get inundated (and I’m lousy at remembering all our social media handles).
How did you first hear about DisruptHR?
Why did you decide to raise your hand and become an organizer for DisruptHR events in Orange County?
How many events have you organized?
What types of people/industries have attended your events?
What are you most proud of that has come out of being involved with/organizing DisruptHR events?
What kind of feedback have you received from those who attended prior DisruptHR Orange County events?
What is your favorite DisruptHR Talk, and why?
Based off of the Talks and conversations at your events, what do you feel are the areas with the biggest opportunity for disruption?
Easy. Everything. Command and control models, covert culture, “paperwork”, HR as a regulator, silos (yes, still there), 40 work weeks, cubicles, open space, closed space, burritos (requires more time to explain).
What excites you or frustrates you about the future of work, your career and/or DisruptHR?
The future of work is here already, we just haven’t acknowledged it. The word “career” is an old word- implies a linear track- not the case for most folks who want to drive 2-5 year experiences in their lifetime. We should probably think about disrupting even these events at some point- maybe have the audience present to the speakers and have the speakers rate them. Cheers and keep up the great work!
