New Night + New Speakers + New MC + New Members
Greetings everyone. Warm welcome to our new members and long-timers.
Ignite Zurich is moving to Saturday night as we continue to grow fans and followers by finding fascinating speakers with deep insight and extreme desire for their particular passion.

Take Ignite speaker, Brian Iselin, formerly running counter-intelligence operations in China and North Korea, he quit spy craft to found the NGO: Slave Free Trade. In Brian's words, "Many people think slavery went away: it didn't. It has gotten much worse. At slavefreetrade (https://slavefreetrade.org/), we are sick of seeing people die for the things we buy.”

Or another new speaker, Jim Carson, actor & stage manager with Zurich Comedy Club. He’s made the Camino de Santiago (http://santiago-compostela.net/) pilgrimage 3 times, most recently in 2017. Jim tells me, “the numbers of people walking it have increased 100-fold over the past 30 years – why is this?”

And SIX more equally thought-provoking global local speakers who will take the stage and rant for 300 seconds. See full line-up at ignitezurich.org (http://ignitezurich.org/) website. BTW, Early Bird ticket sales (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ignite-zurich-show-sat-16-sept-2017-tickets-36636031356) end at midnight[masked].

Don't wait for the laws of chance to connect you to like-minded people on the tram ride home. At Ignite Zurich, we've designed networking as an integral part of the event - which means 99% probability you'll be friends with 10 new people before the night is through.

Join us for stimulating talks, delicious free apéro catered by Resi's Garden (https://www.resisgarden.com/), cash bar, meaningful tête-à-têtes and did I mention international keynote speaker Lesley Stephenson will be our show’s new MC?

Lesley has won the prestigious “best public speaker in Australia” award and more Toastmaster speech contests than Roger Federer has won Grand Slams. She's also the founder of Ethiopian Enterprises (https://www.facebook.com/ethiopianenterprises/), a non-profit org with the objective to make a significant contribution to overcoming poverty in Ethiopia.

and for those who don't know what they don't know ....

What is Ignite? (browse to Ignite website (http://ignitezurich.org/))

Ignite is a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have a burning idea— and the guts to get onstage and share it with their hometown crowd.

Fast-paced fun, thought provoking, social, local, global … Ignite is all of these and more!

“Enlighten us, but make it quick!” is the only theme at Ignite shows. If that sounds easy, there’s a catch: Ignite talks are limited to 20 slides set to auto-advance every 15 seconds. Once they begin - there’s no slowing down, no pauses, no do-overs, no excuses.

Every show, we curate 8 or more speakers who bring a massively diverse range of surprising topics. No matter your interests or curiosity, our evening of fast 5-minute talks will titillate your mind with perspectives and ideas you never knew you needed to know about.

Big Plans for a Big Audience for Dec. 2017 Ignite Show

For our Fri. Dec. 8th show, we've booked the new 200+ seat Impact Hub "Kraftwerks" (https://zurich.impacthub.ch/selnau-project-hotspot-cross-industry-acceleration-zurich/) auditorium. Our dream is to be the first public event in Zurich to sell out this amazing space. Speaker applications are open for the Christmas Special[masked] - pitch us your burning idea using the speaker form on our website.
