Jennifer McClure, CEO of DisruptHR LLC commented: “DisruptHR is a global community - empowering people from every culture and profession who seek an answer to what is next in the world of work.  We believe in the power of disruption to change organizations, lives, minds and ultimately - work.   

Every Disrupt event follows the same formula, no matter where you are in the world.  Events have 10 - 14 speakers, who each get five minutes to share an idea, and enlighten the audience. All DisruptHR presentations are 5-minutes, with 20 slides that automatically advance every fifteen seconds. The goal is to share an idea, make it quick, and have a great time.

“This is the first global Disrupt event.  This Spring, in partnership with UNLEASH, we’ll host the Disrupt America event at UNLEASH America at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Tuesday, May 12th.  The Disrupt format will be the same. The stage is just much, much bigger.”
