Cape Town

The first DisruptHR on African soil.

Hi5 DisruptHR Cape Town

The Rebellious Future of HR, in Cape Town.

DISRUPT is an information exchange designed to energize, inform and empower executives, business leaders and people in the HR field. 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!

What is it?

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 in 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.

Should I attend?

DisruptHR is a high-energy idea forum designed to inform and empower executives, business leaders, people in the human resources field and anyone, really, who is PASSIONATE ABOUT TALENT.

What's the deal, anyway?

Join us for a lively evening of spirited, focused presentations by local professionals who'll share their disruptive ideas on how to move our collective thinking forward when it comes to talent. We're taking the brilliance of TED Talks, adding a pinch of energy from Ignite events, finishing it with a dash of "talent" and giving each speaker 5 minutes to blow your mind on topics relevant to the human experience in the workplace!

No, you don't have to be in HR to attend nor to submit to speak. In fact, Disrupt talks have been given and attended by C-Suite Leaders, Technologists, Restaurateurs, Students, Politicians... and, yes, even a few HR Professionals.

👉 Check out the previous DisruptHR CPT talks to get an idea of what you're in for!
