HREvolution IV - No Phantom Menace

by Matthew Stollak on Tuesday, August 2, 2011

In a scant two months, the fourth iteration of HREvolution will take place in Las Vegas, and I know what you're thinking....the fourth of anything stinks, right?  Movie producers are trying to capitalize and cash in on the public's good will toward the actors and series.

Just look at the following fourquels, and try not to cringe:
"Lethal Weapon 4"
"Terminator Salvation"
"Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"
"The Next Karate Kid"
"Star Wars - The Phantom Menace" (don't try to fool me by titling it "Episode One")
"Batman & Robin"
Any fourquel in a horror series (Omen IV, Halloween IV, Nightmare on Elm Street IV, Saw IV, etc.)

So, what makes the fourth edition of HREvolution more "The Unforgettable Fire" or "Led Zeppelin IV" than "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace?"

1.  Look at our cast of characters below:
Jason Lauritsen and Joe Gerstandt present their Talent Anarchy Hacklab
Kevin Grossman and Meghan Biro on Talent Communities
Craig Fisher and William Tincup on Tool and Technologies
Dr. Daniel Crosby and Dr. Colleen Sutherland on Change Leadership
Lance Haun goes Beyond Blogging
China Gorman and Dwane Lay on Technology that sets your HR Team Apart.
...and more

Scorcese and Spielberg couldn't hire a better array of talent.

2.  There is no 3D money grab.  The price of a ticket still remains at matinee levels. 
3.  Like any movie premiere, you need glitz and glamour, and what says glitz more than Las Vegas.
4.  In older times, going to the movies meant a cartoon, a news reel and a double feature.   HREvolution hearkens back to those days gone by by piggybacking off the HR Technology Conference.  Plus, as an added bonus, by registering for HREvolution, you will get a significant discount to attend HR Tech.

Of course, the best fourth is the Fourth of July.  So celebrate Independence Day early by registering for the fourth edition of HREvolution here
