DisruptHR Denver

On April 14, 2016, the rowdy folks that are a part of the DisruptHR Denver community held their fifth DisruptHR event – their largest one to date – which sold out at 350 registrations!

The DisruptHR Denver community is the first to hold five events – and they’re not stopping!

Planning is already in the works for a Fall 2016 event. Follow @disrupthrDENVER on Twitter or DisruptHR Denver on Facebook to be the first to get details about upcoming events, and a Call For Speakers.


What I Learned At DisruptHR Vancouver - May 2016

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by DisruptHR Vancouver speaker (and official Disruptor) Rob Catalano, Co-Founder at WorkTango – a platform that enables managers to have better conversations with employees to create alignment, improve accountability, and develop high performing teams. Rob is passionate about helping companies succeed – by leveraging technology to make employees successful. This makes him pretty cool in our book.


I attended my first DisruptHR event this week [March 31, 2016]. If you’re not familiar with DisruptHR – definitely check it out. With the plethora of events and conferences out there, we all struggle to choose where to spend our valuable time, but this is a disruptive conference (ugh, sorry, I had to) that’s gaining quite a following. I’m not sure how the other regional events are, but I enjoyed and learned a lot from my Vancouver experience.
