Ignite#38 Speakers

Confessions of an Uber driver and a former dominatrix at Ignite #38

It’s hard to predict what might happen at an Ignite Seattle talk, but previous audiences know that whatever it is, it’s going to be illuminating, ambitious and a bit adventurous.

This time 11 speakers were chosen from 82 submissions.

They ranged from an Uber driver’s confessions, to breaking the 'color code', to dating tips from a former Dominatrix, among others. The crowd is supportive at Ignite events, and the talks are a brisk five minutes.

Scott Berkun emceed the event, which took place on February 28 at the SIFF Egyptian theater in Capitol Hill.

The next Ignite Seattle (#39) is on June 6.
