What happens when you bring together a full-term pregnant emcee, a circus ringmaster, and a crowd cheering “no jerks allowed!”…only the best DisruptHR event Houston has seen yet!
This year our team was fortunate to be a part of the DisruptHR organizing committee for Houston. And boy was it a night to remember!
Last week we brought together 200 HR industry professionals, 11 disruptive speakers, four great sponsors, and an open bar in hopes to put on the most successful DisruptHR event Houston has seen to date.
First of all, our CEO who was 39 weeks pregnant, was to emcee the event. Who knew if she would make it or not…but she did! With her white kicks and all.
Second, the speakers were FANTASTIC! And we’re not just saying that because we helped organize the event. One of our speakers had the crowd chanting “No jerks allowed!” in unison. Another, well he put on his ringmaster hat and showed us all what it’s like to be a monkey in a circus.
“This was the best event ever! Next time I'm bringing my whole team, they needed to be here”
— J. Johnson, UT Health Science Center
We had 11 speakers at last week’s event, and they each had five minutes to blow the audience’s mind. The lineup consisted of HR professionals, business owners and industry experts. But they all have one thing in common – they are ready to disrupt the HR industry as we know it.
We encourage you to check out all the speakers below, because this crew is truly disrupting the HR scene!

“DisruptHR was the most unique and effective information sharing and networking event I have known. As a participant and a spectator, I enjoyed the new connections and learned a few things along the way. It was easy to get a large number of colleagues interested in a happy hour with an informative purpose. I hope to be invited back for DisruptHR Houston 3.0!”
