8 months. Yes, it’s been that long since the last Ignite. The good news is the wait is almost over.
Over 100 people came to the last Ignite event, packing the main floor of the Grand. The night was magical, the intimacy of the Grand and the big screen making it the perfect home for Ignite.
There was the hilarious fashion team competition that got things started, followed by a series of inspiring talks that kept people talking well after the event was done. Ignite Karaoke made its return as well, with 3 brave souls doing their best to make a story out of random slides.
When: Thursday, February 10
Where: Grand Theatre
Tickets: Available early January
Submit a Talk: Deadline December 31
Call for Speakers
Ignite needs *you*, or someone you know to share something fun… entertaining… that also informs and inspires. Topic choices are endless. Many past speakers presented for the first time at an Ignite event. At Ignite everyone is rooting for you, you are among friends. It’s the perfect place to present.
Submit a talk. Deadline is December 31.
We’ll be making more announcements about Ignite Sault 4 over the coming weeks. This one will be the best yet, with a few new surprises and twists. One we can share now is that we’ll be a part of Global Ignite Week. From February 7-11, over 100 cities will host community-powered Ignite events attended by upwards of 12,000 technologists, entrepreneurs, DIYers, and creative professionals on at least six continents. Participating cities include Seattle, Boston, Phoenix, Mumbai, Manila, Bucharest, Amsterdam, Bristol, Sydney, and Wellington.
As an early supporter, we want to thank you for your interest and participation in past events. We couldn’t have got Ignite Sault going without you. It’s tough in the beginning to get new ideas off the ground, and we’re grateful you were there for us.
As Ignite grows, we hope you will continue to lend your support. Help us spread the word. Tell your friends about Ignite. Tweet it. Talk about it on Facebook. Plan to attend Ignite 4.
Thank you from the Ignite crew,
– Gerry, Tom, Nathan, Jason, Trevor
