There’s a new movement sweeping the world and it’s called DisruptHR! MRA - The Management Association is proud to bring the inaugural DisruptHR event to Des Moines on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the Science Center of Iowa in Des Moines.

Disrupt bucks traditional HR values and is a stark contrast to what one would experience at a regular seminar or workshop. DisruptHR Des Moines is a night of short, focused talks designed to energize inform, and empower business professionals and community leaders interested in disruptive ideas and moving the collective thinking forward regarding talent in the workplace. Each of the 12 speakers will have just 5 minutes and 20 slides to knock attendees’ socks off!

Topics are cutting-edge and pertain to talent and the future of work and include the following:

  • Run fast, live fearless to become a maverick
  • Trash performance management!
  • Oh the Talent You'll Find: The Untold Dr. Seuss Story
  • Five hour workday = future reality
  • Don’t fear the side hustle, embrace it
  • And more!

Often HR is the seen as the corporate police. True HR professionals should be empowered to impact the strategic direction of their company because they are more than just recruiting or payroll. The disruptive HR person is multifaceted and multitalented. With this event we challenge our Disrupt Des Moines community to impact the world of work. What is working? What can be better? What is the future of your industry and how do change it? Start the discussion at DisruptHR Des Moines!

We’re expecting this event to sell out so get your tickets now!
