Boundless Connections CEO Lopez to speak at DisruptHR Rochester

Christina Lopez, cross industry solutions expert, author, speaker, and Boundless Connections CEO, will present at the DisruptHR Rochester event April 26 at Harro East Ballroom.

Lopez is one of 12 featured speakers. Her talk, “Cross Industry Ideation – Developing Talent,” will present a different perspective on training and retaining talent.

“Now is the perfect time to try new things,” said Lopez. “The world has completely changed, yet a lot of the views on employee relations and development haven’t caught up. I’ve been using my experience in the sports industry to develop a tech talent pipeline, and I’ll be giving a peak at what that looks like for training and retaining employees at the DisruptHR Rochester event.”
