Nicole Dessain is a talent management and HR "nerd". She loves to blow up long-held beliefs that stop us from preparing our organizations for the future of work. She feels lucky to have had an amazing corporate HR and consulting career that she recently turned into her own start-up, talent.imperative inc, a talent experience design consultancy. Her second, not-for-profit business, DisruptHR Chicago, was launched in 2016 and has inspired more than 1,000 HR and business leaders in the Chicago area. Nicole is honored to serve as an IDEO U coach and as talent and culture blogger for HuffPost.
