Had the opportunity to attend my first DisruptHR last night in Tulsa. I was delighted by the fun atmosphere & diverse content. As expected every speaker had a unique POV. What was unexpected was the variety of clever delivery styles.

-Greg Hawks, Keynote Speaker & Corporate Culture Specialist at Hawks Agency

DisruptHR-Tulsa at Hardrock Casino was absolutely amazing last night! Networking, great food & drinks, and disruptive & stimulating speakers!

-Shae Factory, Recruiter at US Beef Corp

Tulsa hosted its first #disrupthr event last night and I am thankful for the inspiring disruptive leaders we have in our midst that just killed it. Disruption in business is the new constant, and as HR professionals we are pivotal in either embracing and leading the disruption or becoming obsolete. How are you disrupting HR? “Truly effective HR organizations are taking on a whole new identity. They are focusing on simplification, design, culture, and productivity. Yes, they are still doing the "hard things" well, but more and more of their time has spent automating and simplifying these "must do" activities so they can focus on design, culture, coaching, leadership, and values.

-Katrina Dougan, Strategic HR Business Partner at HoganTaylor

“(We) I had a great time at last night’s Disrupt HR event. We were actually planning to leave ½ way through to make another scheduled engagement, however, the speakers were so engaging we couldn’t leave. Kevin Mathews and the other closers for the evening certainly did not disappoint.

This is wisdom that is not shared enough by thought leaders and is so critical to an organizations culture and employee wellbeing…not to mention high performance.

- Stefan A. Mecke, JD, MBA, SHRM-SCP, SPHR and Attorney at Barber & Bartz

"THANK YOU for disrupting HR in Tulsa last night! There were several things enjoyable about the evening, but one thing that burbled up today ... we all had time just to talk to each other. We weren't checking the time, needing to get back to work or some other pressing demand. I appreciate you giving us the space to do that and the entertaining and thought-provoking presenters."

- Julie

Disrupt HR was really fun. Loved the format and the music. :)
