“Our DisruptHR event, at its core, was fundamentally about three things; collaboration, learning & change agility in these disruptive times. Three things that we believe are of significant importance to business and individuals now and in the future. We wanted to do something innovative and different to encourage thought leadership around critical topics such as –the future of work. DisruptHR was a fantastic platform to provide our guests with a plethora of disruptive and compelling points of view, our speakers did an excellent job of inspiring, energising and exciting our guests with the ideas that they shared.”
