The HRevolution unconference is coming to Chicago on May 7th-8th!
HR social media thought leaders and practitioners from around the country will be converging for 24 hours+ of mind-bending, trend-setting discussions on HR, social media, communications, leadership/development in an unconference format that emphasizes interaction over passive listening. HRevolution has it all.
The potential is great, but space is limited. SIGN UP NOW!
3 reasons why this year’s event will rock:
People. First and foremost, it’s the people. And the crew coming together for this year’s unconference is fantastic. The planning committee for 2010 has arranged for about twice the capacity of last year’s event, meaning HRevolution 2010 will blend old faces with new in an intimate setting where
networkingrelationships can unfold naturally and meaningfully.
- Logistics. HRevolution will take place at Catalyst Ranch, one of Chicago’s premier event locations which is perfect for the unconference format. Catalyst Ranch is known for bringing a level of fun and sophistication to events that is unparalleled—they were the only site that used “white boards,” “afternoon snack service,” “stereo systems,” and the “Play-Doh for 110 people” into our planning conversations. Bonus for out-of-towners: it’s centrally located with easy access to hotels, restaurants, and nightlife. Preferred hotel accommodations have also been arranged at the very stylish Wit Hotel. (Use code HRevolution 2010 when booking.) Rest assured, we want you to leave the unconference loving Chicago hospitality.
- Topics. The beauty of the unconference format is that it is designed to leave you with practical, useful knowledge because you’ll be actively engaged in the discussion from start to finish. When you get back to work on Monday, and someone asks you, “What did you get for the money,” the answer that flows oh-so-naturally from your lips will blow them away. And you, too, we hope. Especially given the awesome $100 ticket price.
So if you’re in HR, if you’re a manager who truly believes in the power of your people, or if you’re dabbling with this social media “stuff” and thinking “Should I or shouldn’t I” or “How do I…” or even “Why would I,” then get here on May 7th-8th. You will meet the people and learn the stuff and be in the places that make it all come together.
Because the old model is dead. You know the one: spend thousands of dollars for a conference, show up to sessions hung-over, get blabbed at by an expert while sitting in an audience of several hundred, go to expo hall, swipe in at booths in hopes of winning an iPod, go back home, get personal development budget slashed because everyone knows (including you) that the whole thing was a big boondoggle, convince management to reopen some development budget… repeat.
How’s this for a concept: in one day, you’ll learn practical ways of integrating technology into your job, you’ll meet people who will become actual, in-the-flesh resources for you whom you can reach out to as needed, and you will go home with specific knowledge about how to perform your job at a higher caliber and at less expense than before. And for fun, there will be a kayak race to showcase the best kayaks. If you want to join and have not thought of what to purchase, visit bestkayaks.reviews.
