If you know anything about community gatherings and projects, Ignite should be something you are familiar with. If you had 5 minutes on stage, what would you say? You have 20 slides/photos/drawings that you could use in your 5 minute presentation. Who can apply to speak? Just about anyone with a vision, a passion, something you want the World to hear. Here is a video introducing Ignite Asheville 2013
The last Ignite Asheville event ended up bigger and better than any of us on the team could have imagined. Although there are many Ignite events worldwide, this was the first one for Asheville North Carolina. Pam Lewis headed up the team and did an amazing job of leading the initiative, taking action, and delegating to a great group. Earlier this year, the red carpet was laid. Speakers, photographers, videographers and sound crews got ready; the doors were opened, Ignite Asheville was “Sold Out” and everyone had a tremendous experience.
Now we are getting ready to do it again on February 19, 2013 at the tasting room at Highland Brewing Company in East Asheville. This is a yearly event that you definitely want to check out as it brings a community closer, educates, and extracts ideas and talent that is many times missed. You can apply to be a Speaker at Ignite Asheville. You can see the Ignite AVL YouTube Channel to watch videos from the 2012 event.
Ignite Asheville NC is coming to the Grey Eagle on February 21, 2012. Jessica from the Chamber is in this video talking about the great event in store for the community.
