Stay tuned for details…
A night to remember! Audrey Barbakoff had us in stitches with her “read a trashy novel” talk, but we all learned more about how our brains work because of it too. The evening was a great mix of inspiring and enlightening, and we had wonderful music by John Eisenhauer (founder of Kombi Corp) afterwards. Steve Stolee, our dedicated volunteer videographer, has pulled out the stops to get the video posted ALREADY. You can see the full show here.
The next day I bumped into Kathleen O’Brien at T&C, and she said something that has stuck with me. She noted that Ignite is like a “soapbox” for our community, playing an important role of giving a voice to (and an audience for!) our ideas and opinions. I love that! Meanwhile, Ignite Bainbridge has retired for another year and life more or less returns to normal for me, Jason, and our vivacious Emcee and Chief Firecracker, Linna Callaham. Thanks much to all our speakers and volunteers! Until next May. ~Leslie
Stories told; passions revealed; ideas shared.
TONIGHT (May 6) IS THE NIGHT for our annual community festival of ideas and passions. The audience will be filled with your friends and neighbors, supporting the speakers who might also be your friends and neighbors, so you probably want to be there too!
Please buy your tickets in advance to show your support for this young island tradition, and pass the word so that others also discover the fun (and if you can post a flier or two, please stop by OfficeXpats and pick some up). You can buy tickets either right here online with a credit card, OR in person at OfficeXpats, with cash or check. By the way, the $5 ticket price ALSO gets you into the pre-party at 6pm for snacks and drinks upstairs at OfficeXpats. What a deal. Then 7pm is showtime. Thank you for helping to ignite our island!
