HR Uncubed captures the future.

Uncubed’s annual HR leadership conference returns with a high-profile, diverse lineup of content, an expanded format, and additional professional development accreditation.

HR Uncubed takes place on May 1st and 2nd, in Williamsburg, the creative heart of Brooklyn, at the newly-opened Williamsburg Hotel, the Wythe Hotel, and other nearby venues including the Brooklyn Brewery. The core themes of the 2018 event cover the most pressing HR and talent acquisition issues for companies today including: leveraging AI and data, diversity, equity, & inclusion, building a winning employer brand, and candidate experience for next-gen talent.

“HR Uncubed is the antidote to the traditional convention center feel of industry conferences. It’s woven into the Brooklyn creative community, which gives it an entirely unique atmosphere,” said Chris Johnson, CEO of Uncubed, adding “the traditional trade show format represents the past of the HR industry; HR Uncubed captures the future.”

In addition to creative venues, HR Uncubed pairs some of the most accomplished leaders from industry with speakers from other backgrounds, including basketball legend, media personality, and motivational speaker Jay Williams, a top NBA draft choice who suffered a career-ending accident and is the author of the book: Life Is Not an Accident: A Memoir of Reinvention.

“We want every piece of content to be as inspirational and actionable as possible,” said Johnson, emphasizing the educational, networking, and tactical value for attendees, which range from HR leaders at high-growth startups to the Fortune 100. “It’s fascinating to watch some of the most storied companies in the world learn from startups in their first decade, and vice versa.”

The number of attendees is scheduled to increase by more than 100% over 2017, positioning HR Uncubed as a preeminent HR leadership conference both in New York and in the US.

New content tracks in 2018 include dedicated sessions on digital transformation and also for university professionals seeking to better understand the mindset of the most progressive employers.

Other speakers include:

  • Nicole Turner, Senior VP of Global HR, MasterCard
  • Lorine Pendleton, Chair, Tiger 21, named one of the 50 Most Connected Women In America by Marie Claire
  • Conor L. Myhrvold, Senior Engineering Program Manager, Uber
  • Kristy McCann, Founder, GoCoach, Former VP, Talent at Pearson & Constant Contact

Participants can expect to increase their understanding of how to build and maintain world-class teams in an environment where AI and data, candidate experience, employer brand, and diversity, equity, inclusion represent both today’s biggest opportunities and challenges.
