There’s a great networking opportunity that I highly recommend: Ignite. Ignite is a program that’s held in cities around the world. It allows locals to talk about something they’re passionate about – in a short time (~5 minutes or less). There is typically a networking event before and after the performance, so it’s a great opportunity to network, learn something new, and be entertained.
The event is scheduled for November 19th at Crosstown Arts. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 later. I’ve included additional details below. To get more information, or to purchase your tickets, visit their website here.
Enlighten us, but make it quick.
Your favorite night of enlightenment, entertainment, and beer is back. 12 presenters will have 5 minutes, 20 slides, and a lot to say. With topics as varied as the slides are creative, you’re guaranteed to learn (and laugh) more in two hours than you have all week.
And you thought slide shows were boring.
Undercurrent, along with Start Co., New Memphis Institute, and Orion Federal Credit Union, are thrilled to present Ignite Memphis, Vol. 6 on November 19, 2013 at Crosstown Arts.
Early Bird tickets are only $10 through October 31, then $15 through the night of the event. Doors open at 7:00 and the show starts promptly at 7:30.
Admission includes beer, wine, food, and all the enlightenment you can handle.
