We are just a couple of weeks away from what’s going to be a fantastic HR conference – HRevolutionHRevolution

What’s HRevolution?  Well, you can check out the wiki here, but in short, it’s an event for HR professionals who want to discuss social media for HR, blogging, HR technology and the future of HR.  There’s a fantastic group of speakers scheduled for the day, including Trish McFarlane and Ben Eubanks , co-creators of this event, and Steve Boese , who is also a member of the planning team.  Check out the full line-up of speakers and topics here.

The whole idea for HRevolution started on Twitter as a back-and-forth between Trish and Ben just a few months ago.  That’s right, this is the first year and already we’ve had tremendous support including several sponsors who stepped up financially to help make this a success.  Today I’ll be talking about two of our sponsors with more info on the other sponsors coming soon.

One of these sponsors happens to be the really cool ad agency that I work for. Doe is a full-service national agency specializing in all areas of communication (digital marketing, advertising, design, public relations, public affairs, sales promotion and direct marketing).   Some of our clients include Maker’s Mark, Hillerich & Bradsby (Louisville Slugger Bats) , Knob Creek Bourbon,  Daytona Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, Central Bank and Norton Healthcare.  You can check out some of our work here.    We have a social media group that works directly with our clients on all things digital/social media. That group also works on all things digital and social for Doe and I’ve been a part of this group working on our internal strategy.  So when I mentioned this conference to our CEO, he didn’t hesitate in his support.  


And then there’s  Lyn Hoyt with Berkeley Tandem, Inc/Fusion Frames, otherwise known as @designtwit and @awardframes on Twitter.  Berkeley Tandem is a certificate and award frame manufacturer based in Nashville, TN.  They supply, design and sale wholesale stock and custom frame award products to businesses and non-profits.  A few years ago, they changed their sales strategy and decided to sell more direct online and have since launched and  They’ve had great success with their online product niche and some of their clients include CarMax, Boy Scouts of America, American Red Cross, Dupont, Intel and HR consultants who incorporate their products into their recognition strategies.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lyn at the Kentucky SHRM conference last month.   She is a graphic designer by trade but has gotten more and more involved in HR as an employer.  We had a terrific time talking about HR and social media and while I know she’s thrilled to be a sponsor of HRevolution, I know she’s even more excited about being an attendee.  From Lyn:

What we hope to learn at HRevolution is to be better collaborators and content creators, inspiring the HR industry with ideas online and to use social networking in order to continue learning about what our customers want. And as a business owner, hiring and good HR practices impacts the growth of my business. I find myself learning from this group of HR professionals about the tools, planning, practice and strategy that shapes our company’s HR planning.” 

 That’s exactly what’s going to be happening at HRevolution.  And it’s all going down right here in Louisville on November 6th and  7th.  We’ll be hanging out at the Seelbach Hilton for the conference and we’ll be checking out 4th Street Live for our tweet-up on Friday evening. 

We’re just days away.  Are you registered?

    I’m looking forward to meeting you in person at HRevolution! I think it’s safe to assume we won’t be the only ones using social media and tweeting at this event like we were at the Ohio & Kentucky SHRM Conferences! 🙂

    @Steve – all of our sponsors have been terrific, haven’t they? This event is going to ROCK! 🙂

    @Jennifer – No, I don’t think we’ll be the only ones this time! With all of the great HR minds in the room, I’m afraid I won’t be able to type fast enough to keep up with everything! But I’m looking forward to it and looking forward to meeting you. See you soon!
