More About DisruptHR London

Rebooted in 2022, DisruptHR London is a community of innovative HR pros, TA pros, and leaders.

Are you tired of the same old approach to Human Resources? Are you ready to start talking about talent in a whole new way? DisruptHR is for you! This is unlike any other HR event in London.

DisruptHR is built on the belief that how we’ve approached people and talent in the past won’t be the best way to approach them in the future. DisruptHR is founded on the idea that ALL business leaders (and that includes you, HR!) need to be ready to take some risks, to stir the pot…in short, to DISRUPT.

* Registering for this event does not guarantee entry. Capacity is limited and this event is specifically designed for HR, Talent pros and leaders. If you do not fit the criteria, your application to attend may be rejected.

Please note: While we all hope we are through the worst of the pandemic, admission to this event will be subject to any Covid-related legal requirements in place on May 9th, 2023. This may include wearing a face mask or a requirement to show proof of vaccination.
