Ignite Charlotte 8 – Speakers & Talks

Image of Speakers, Emcee, Host for Ignite Charlotte 8Ignite Charlotte 8 Talks will be held on Thursday, May 24th via Facebook LIVE at 7pm.

As always, our Ignite events feature a series of talks by speakers who are personally or professionally passionate about an idea and have the guts to get on stage to share it with their fellow community members. Here’s the kicker, they only get 5 minutes using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds, which means the pressure is on for them to enlighten us, but make it quick!

These are the Talks & Speakers, in order of presentation, including our host and emcee (MC) for our Ignite Charlotte 8 Talks, Facebook LIVE event.
