How ScaleHR is Disrupting the HR Conference Industry

According to the CEO Challenge report by The Conference Board, the #1 business challenge CEOs across the globe face is ensuring talent needs are always aligned with business needs.

As such, today’s HR functions are required to keep pace with the break-neck speeds in which their organizations are evolving.   

Being a stronger leader in determining how to scale or support operations to meet the people needs of your company is mission-critical to your professional success.


Staying abreast of the most viable HR-related tactics, data, best practices, solutions, and technologies can be overwhelming without a trusted forum to test the thinking surrounding potential courses of action.

Many HR functions struggle to determine the most suitable next steps for their teams to lead the next wave of transformations in their workplace.

And if they discover they will need to engage external assistance, it can be a challenge to efficiently source, screen, hire and integrate the right service providers for their needs.


Shockingly Different Leadership is proud to be the host of a unique event like no other- ScaleHR 2020!  ScaleHR 2020 is the only strategy conference designed to scale HR capability and capacity to support organizational growth, business transformation, and the workforce of the future.

As an attendee, you will participate in 8 micro-learning strategy labs at ScaleHR 2020!  Yes, you read right – micro-learning strategy labs.  No, it’s not your typical conference breakout session, but a fun impactful alternative. Intrigued?  Then read on.

A micro-learning strategy lab is a unique rapid-learning development format which combines the principles of micro-learning (short bursts of knowledge or insight) and innovation strategy labs (using ideation and strategic thinking to move ideas further, faster).

Conference attendees participate in a guided experience of:
1.  better understanding the new knowledge presented on a topic
2.  using the power of group think to ideate relevant options for them and/or their organization 
3.  strategizing the viability of applying option(s) of choice back into their company, business or organization

What is the experience of a micro-learning strategy lab like?
Presenters will be given 10 minutes to present riveting content, forward-thinking ideas, best practice solutions, enlightening case studies and/or ground-breaking perspectives on the identified topic. Only having 10 minutes will require that you receive laser-focused insights that will have a ton of value vs 60 minutes of fluff.  

The presenters will then participate on a facilitated panel on said topic, followed by you experiencing a guided strategy session on the topic with fellow conference attendees.
