About DisruptHR

Come hang out and hear spirited, focused presentations about disruptive ideas in the talent, HR and PeopleOps space. We take the brilliance of TED Talks, adding a pinch of energy from Ignite events, finishing it with a dash of "talent" and giving each speaker 5 minutes to blow your mind on topics relevant to the people experience in the workplace! Currently DisruptHR operates worldwide, but our RDU chapter was the first in NC.

You don't need to work in HR to attend nor to submit to speak. In fact, Disrupt talks have been given and attended by C-Suite Leaders, Technologists, Restaurateurs, Students, Politicians...and, yes, even a few HR Professionals.

DisruptHR is an information exchange designed to energize, inform and empower executives, business leaders and professionals in the vast and important fields of Human Resources (People Ops). We are about blowing up the norms to which we've fallen prey, innovating, and creating a more meaningful, rewarding, and engaging experience from this thing called work.


The Event

Speakers will be given 5 minutes each to wow you - they’ll do it while 20 slides advance automatically every 15 seconds. It’s energetic, thought-provoking, and high-impact. You aren't coming to be "Pitched" to (except for brief thanks to our sponsors, because they are amazing and make this happen). You're coming to hear of innovative ideas that could Disrupt how we operate. 

The ticket price includes beverages (adult and otherwise [Always drink Responsibly]), food, incredible content, and awesome networking opportunities interspersed throughout the evening. And all of it in a cool place with a tavern nextdoor.
