Announcing Guest MC: Rovina Broomfield – for Ignite Seattle #40

At our #39th event, it worked out so well to have Nicole Steinbok as a guest MC, we’re doing it again for #40.

This time it’s Ignite Seattle alum Rovina Broomfield. She’ll be the master of ceremonies (thats what MC, or emcee, means after all) introducing the audience to the Ignite format and inviting our great lineup of speakers to the stage.

Tickets are on sale now (early bird price of $10) and as usual, we expect to sell out, so don’t wait.

She spoke at #37 at the Egyptian about “So You’re Black In Tech”.
