Ignite Charlotte 1 Enlightens

Ignite Charlotte 1 launched this past Wednesday at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, North Carolina. Started in Seattle, Ignite Charlotte aims to enlighten you, but make it quick.

The concept is that a speaker has 5 minutes to talk through 20 slides that progress through their sequence ready or not.

Sam Fagan, VP of Business Development at Blueagele Marketing hosted the event and did a great job, he shared his passion for fostering children, and was funny and made the speakers feel welcome.

Part 1 consisted of the following speakers:

Where ideas come from - Patrick McLean

Technology Food and You - Jason Silverstein

What your phone can do for you - Andrew Gertig

Starting Charlotte's future - Jim Van Fleet

Setting the record straight: The real retrosexual male - Dwayne Waite

If you want a successful business - then hire camp counselors - Dave Bell

How to talk about sex without breaking a sweat - Becky Knight

Great speakers and my personal favorites were Jim and Dwayne's presentations.

Part 2 speakers:

How to be a citizen lobbyist - Warren Cooksey

Being a missionary - Chad Bryant

Webinars that don't suck - Dawn Adams Miller & Dick Carlson

Creativity Breeds Creativity - Rajeev Kulkarni

When life gives you lemons, start your own business - Jay Radford

Jack of all trades, Master of many - UX designer with american city business journals

The problem with data and statistics - Adam Holden-Bache

Social media for social good - David Wells

I really enjoyed Rajeev's presentation on 3D modelling, reminded me of a TED session, and Dawn and Dick's presenation on webinars that don't suck.
