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.

How did you first hear about DisruptHR?
My friend and fellow Philly Disruptor Kelly Poulson told me about this awesome group that was shaking things up in the HR world and asked me to help launch the Philly chapter. The rest is history.
Why did you decide to raise your hand and become an organizer for DisruptHR events in Philadelphia?
So many traditional HR groups didn’t really speak to me; I wanted to connect with others who geek out on the same stuff I do in a less formal but professional setting. Having the opportunity to kick this movement off in Philadelphia was a great way to get educated, meet new people and have fun!
How many events have you organized?
We launched in May 2016 and DisruptHR Philadelphia #4 is happening next week; the first three sold out and hosted about 250 people.
What types of people/industries have attended your events?
Our audience tends to be pretty HR-centric but we also get people who do in-house marketing, work for brands that are of interest to our attendees and leaders who are interested in enhancing their company cultures and people-centric processes.
What are you most proud of that has come out of being involved with/organizing DisruptHR events?
I love hearing that people leave our events with a renewed energy for what they do. Even if it’s just one idea or concept that spoke to them, that can be the catalyst for change and has the ability to affect people’s happiness, well-being and success. How cool is that?
What kind of feedback have you received from those who attended prior DisruptHR Philadelphia events?
It’s amazing to hear that people look forward to attending Disrupt because it’s not your average HR event.
What is your favorite DisruptHR Talk, and why?
I loved John Baldino‘s “Can I Get A What-What? The HR Movement For Business Relevance.”
Not only is John an engaging speaker, he gets really honest about the role of HR and our impact on a company’s bottom line.
Based off of the Talks and conversations at your events, what do you feel are the areas with the biggest opportunity for disruption?
I’m excited to hear more about the evolution of “Human Resources” into a more people-centric operation and how we as People Operations professionals can best impact a businesses’ brand while empowering employees and offering real solutions for career development, engagement and overall happiness at work.
What excites you or frustrates you about the future of work, your career and/or DisruptHR?
The field is wide open and companies are ready for a fresh perspective as it pertains to their employees and employer brand.
I just launched a company that focuses on People Operations and Talent consulting, and it’s so exciting to hear from clients and potential clients about their goals and ideas. In our field, we have the ability to facilitate change and make an impact in people’s lives. I never take that for granted and feel super lucky to get to work in this space
