When my blog posts slow down this time of year you can rest assured it’s because of one thing…
HRevolution is happening at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on October 6th.
I love planning this event in my free time. It takes away from my writing time for a bit, but it’s well worth it. Since it’s start four years ago, this event has been one of the best networking events in the HR space. We’ve partnered, learned, shared, laughed and even cried. But, a wedding? What could that mean?
If you’ve never attended HRevolution before, I need to back-track and explain. Back in 2009 when this event was a mere string of tweets taking shape into a gathering, we said the real purpose was networking in person with other smart business pros. That first night in Louisville, KY, fifty people gathered. At this point, none of us had met. Not even the planning committee. Any relationships we had were purely virtual.
It was at this event that we all first met Frank Zupan and Tammy Colson. I distinctly remember meeting them both separately. Frank was living in Ohio, Tammy was on the east coast. Well, that first event came and went and many friendships were started. The next year at HRevolution, Frank and Tammy attended separately again. But this time, romance must have been in the air. By the third year of HRevolution, they were a couple. Now here we are, four years in, and since we’ll be in Las Vegas, there will be a wedding. The first wedding of a couple that met at HRevolution. We couldn’t be happier for them!
Will you find love at HRevolution? Maybe.
What I know you WILL definitely find:
New colleagues who may be CEOs, COOs, HR practitioners, consultants, recruiters, people who work in HR technology, and more.
Sessions where YOU are part of the discussion.
Debate on issues impacting our field.
