Ignite Parents III – April 9 – The Livery

ignite_cityWhat if….. you had the opportunity to enjoy a host of dynamic and enthusiastic speakers talking about educational topics that totally resonate with you as a parent of a child (or two, or three or more) in the education system? What if….. each of those speakers could enlighten and motivate you in just 5 minutes, all of them in one delightful evening? Join us on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at the Livery Theatre in Goderich for the 3rd installment of our popular Ignite Parents. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the show begins at 7:00 pm. No admission and seating is on a first come first serve basis, so come early. Food and a swag bag included

Ignite is a community building speaking event hosted in cities all across the world where people gather to share their passions and ideas using 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds for a total of just 5 minutes. The motto of an Ignite event is: “Enlighten us, but make it quick!” We loved that idea and the unique format so the Ignite concept was adapted to focus on education and the topics of prime interest to parents.
