Disrupt HR Barbados 3.0 is being held on October 25th, 2022, at Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
The event which is organized by Julie Turney, who is the CEO and Principal Consultant of HR@Heart Consulting Inc, a company that coaches burnt-out and frustrated Human Resource professionals in their careers.
Turney said that due to the overwhelming demand in February, they have decided to move the event from Ten Habitat to the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
“This time, members of the audience can look forward to hearing thirteen speakers- La Shawna Griffith, Shauna Marshall, Ambassador Joan Underwood, Kelly Johnally, Adelena Chandler, Kara Boyce, Dr. Rochelle Haynes, Dr. Jaycee Mayers, Tiffany Broomes, Corey McClean, Sharon Moaze and Cherita O’Dell speak on various topics that would improve the way we work. Our speakers are mostly from Barbados, but we also have speakers from the Bahamas and St Marten joining the lineup,” she said.
The CEO and Principal Consultant at HR @Heart Consulting Inc, said to become a speaker for Disrupt HR Barbados, speakers apply through their online application process and then they select the best speakers based on their topic. We also do additional research on their LinkedIn profiles; however, some speakers are selected through headhunting in the business community.
But what can patrons expect at Disrupt HR Barbados on October 25th 2022?
Turney said that patrons can also enjoy entertainment from National Library Service’s Poetry Slam King Akeem Stonedwithcupid Chandler-Prescod and 2nd Place in the National Library Service’s Poetry Slam Competition Theo Deo The Poet Greenidge.
