STOKE YOUR BURNING PASSION AT IGNITE SAULT 7!

Ignite, a global revolution that blazed a trail to Sault Ste. Marie in 2009, continues to bring people together to share thoughts, skills and experiences in a fun and supportive environment. Ignite gives speakers of all abilities and backgrounds five minutes at the podium to talk about almost anything at all.

The seventh in a series of annual events, Ignite Sault 7 will be held at The Grand Theatre on Friday November 1 at 7 PM. Enrich your mind and spirit with a variety of topics from some of the most interesting and gifted people in our City. Friends, family, neighbours and the curious alike can support speakers by purchasing a ticket at the door or online at [insert hyperlink here] closer to the event.

The deadline to register as a speaker this year is Friday October 4, 2013. Online registration is required. For more information, including program rules & guidelines, and to fill out your registration, please visit www.ignitesault.ca.

This licensed event attracts speakers of all skill sets from all backgrounds who want to challenge themselves in presenting a five minute talk with 20 timed slides. This is not a competition, but an opportunity for those looking for a forum to talk about their interests, share their philosophy, recruit for their cause, or just tell their story. Seasoned speakers and those who take the podium for the first time will have free access to coaching prior to the event and can request expert feedback on their presentation.

Gerry Kirk, co-founder of Ignite Sault, is pleased with the city’s response to this unusual and innovative series. “Ignite provides a sampler of what people are doing in their lives or a lesson about an experience that has shaped their way of thinking. It is an excellent example of community engagement at a personal level.”

IGNITE Sault made its debut in the Sault with a small group of volunteers who are passionate about the spoken word. Their first organized event attracted a few dozen people. Since then, Ignite has sparked the interest of sellout crowds and attracted unforgettable speakers who enjoy a fast-paced evening of fun, food and inspiration.
