Seven great reasons to come to Ignite Seattle #40 (Thurs Oct. 3rd)

We’re thrilled to bring you another edition of the best open submission public speaking event in the Northwest. We’re on a long stretch of sold out shows, so don’t wait to long to get your tickets.

Our shows are a great, fun, social experience, perfect for a date night, catching up with old friends or even just to hang out with coworkers after work. 

If you’ve never come before, or have missed a few, this is a great one. Here are seven reasons to come to Ignite 40:

  1. Know Anyone with OCD? Melissa Reaves will talk about the profound effects on her family of having a child with the condition and how they’ve learned to cope and grow. 
  2. Wonder what the impact of what you eat really is? Mary Purdy will explain how you can save the world, just by what you put under  your fork.
  3. Did you know there are almost 450,000 foster children in the U.S.? Karlos Dillard, a foster adult, will teach us how they see life differently, something we should know as some people in our lives were likely once in the foster system. 
  4.  Rovina Broomfield, Ignite Seattle alum (So you’re Black in Tech), will be our fantastic Guest MC for the entire evening. 
  5. Have you been arrested for a serious crime you didn’t even know you were commtting? Angela Barris’ surprising story involves a children’s toy, drawn guns, a concussion and bloody hands! Come to hear they whole wild tale.  
  6. Easily beat the traffic and grab a pre-show snack or drink in the neighborhood near Town Hall Seattle with our recommendations.
  7. Plus eight more talks on a wide array of challenging, fun and entertaining subjects.

You will hate yourself if you don’t come. I mean, it’s Thursday night – shouldn’t you start your weekend a day early? We think you deserve it.

Doors open at 6:30pm (as does the cash bar). Talks start at 7:30pm, with an  intermission. Full list of speakers and topics.
