Rob Lowe is coming to WorkHuman 2015. Here’s why.


I am so excited about our WorkHuman speaker lineup. From keynotes to session speakers to attendees, we are assembling an amazing cross-section of people that is going to blow your socks off. But I have to say that our latest speaker announcement is one of the most thrilling.

Rob Lowe is going to be giving a keynote talk at WorkHuman 2015.

Rob is an unexpected (and phenomenal) addition to our lineup—which is why I love that he agreed to speak at the event. If you’ve read his books, you’ll know why we chose him. If you haven’t, you should.

Rob is the NY Times bestselling author of two biographical collections of essays (Stories I Only Tell My Friends and Love Life). They contain some amusing and witty insights on his work and life. But more than this, he shares some amazing observations on things like mentoring, risk-taking, and teamwork—growing out of decades of working in one of the toughest industries out there.

He has so much to say that you’re going to want to hear. But inviting him is also emblematic of how different this conference really is going to be. (I’m fairly confident in saying that you won’t see Rob at many HR industry events.)

WorkHuman is about best practices. It is about psychology. It is about technology. It is about engagement and recognition. It is about the business impact of a human workplace. And it is about provocative stories of work, of all kinds, that will amuse, engage and enlighten. And that’s why Rob is such an inspired choice.

In addition to being an acclaimed author, Rob Lowe is also a veteran of television shows that focus on work –such as The West Wing and Parks & Recreation. He’s also a philanthropist and dedicated activist in the fight against cancer. The consistent notes I see in his work as an actor and as a writer—particularly his most recent work—is how much all of it prioritizes humanity, humor, creativity, expression, and the importance of relationships.

So that’s why Rob’s coming to our WorkHuman conference on June 8-10. And why you should come too.
