DisruptHR Chicago: Nine “aha’s” from the Spring 2018 speaker event

Well, that was a blast!

The Spring 2018 DisruptHR Chicago was energetic, thought-provoking and high-impact. Ten speakers with something really disruptive to share, five minutes – with 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds.
