DISRUPT is a movement designed to ENERGIZE, INSPIRE and CHALLENGE executives, business leaders, community change agents and professionals in the field of Human Resources. Basically everyone and anyone who WORKS. Our mission is to move the dialog forward and empower you to take ACTION to CHANGE the world of work.

DISRUPT is a night of thought-provoking talks from experts and professionals who want to share their ideas on how we can move our talent thinking forward. Each speaker has 5 minutes, 20 slides rotating at 15 seconds each to blow your mind! Part entertainment, part education a movement that will really move you to action.

The Disrupt audience is encouraged to interact and engage with the speakers by clapping, laughing, tweeting, Instagraming, and waving to our LIVE FEED AUDIENCE ACROSS THE GLOBE.

Culture Community

The Alliance Disrupt: Engaging Thought Leaders



"Disrupt Madison was a fun and exhilarating event! The presentations were well orchestrated and engaging, and the fast pace made it particularly exciting.  I left feeling energized and excited to make change in our industry."

Ashley Powell, Business Development Manager, Bendyworks


"The venue was perfect, and even though I had to get going pretty soon after the speakers were done, I actually, did more networking in those 20 minutes than I do at most week-long conferences."  

Allison Gamble, Manager, HR Technology, Cuna Mutual Group


"I was especially drawn by the inclusive, forward-thinking and refreshing nature of the Disrupt Madison event (hosted in a relaxed and creative setting). Tapping the generous spirit of the diverse, impassioned professionals sharing their ideas and discoveries on the future of talent and the world of work – I left energized and recommitted to lead and collaborate from a place of service. A BIG THANKS to the event co-organizers, Coreyne Woodman-Holoubek and Laura Gmeinder, for so graciously holding the space for us!"

Hollie Hollister, Founder and Owner of H Cubed Group, LLC



"Being part of Disrupt Madison helped us think through how we want to be a positive “disruption” in the world of health care. The Disrupt Madison team did an excellent job of delivering value for our sponsorship through cross-promotion and social media. They coached us on speaking effectively to their audience so we got the greatest benefit from our sponsorship. Afterward, they provided insights into what makes the Disrupt events successful so we could apply those tactics in our own marketing. It was definitely a rewarding partnership!"

Cheryl DeMars, President & CEO, The Alliance


"We are proud to once again be a sponsor for Disrupt Madison.  Cornerstone was so impressed with the 2016 inaugural event that we were eager to renew our commitment. Sponsorship is definitely a win-win;  the event provides high value to our clients/prospective clients. The evening is professionally crafted and a community is created that encourages connections; it's a unique and cutting edge event. We also found value in the time to connect, before and after the event, and enjoyed hearing dynamic stories across multiple industries from people who are passionate about all things work."

Jake Brennan, Regional Sales Manager, Cornerstone
