Ignite Durham will feature presentations selected by members of the Triangle community. Presenters will talk about the North Carolina craft beer industry, honey bees, parenting challenges and volunteering in the Triangle. Special Guests Henry Kaestner, executive chairman of Bandwidth.com and co-founder of Durham Cares; Tom Webster, Vice President, Strategy and Marketing of Edison Research; and Mur Lafferty, writer, podcaster and blogger, will also speak and share their BIG ideas in the five-minute format.
I’m excited to take the stage at the Carolina with support from @CTDceo Bob Nocek. It’s a huge step up from the Lincoln and honestly a HUGE nod of recognition for what has become an AWESOME Triangle event. I’m incredibly proud to be on board officially starting with Ignite Durham, I mean, more officially than just the loud funny guy between Speakers. Thanks to Jeff Cohen, Ryan Boyles and THE Lisa Sullivan.
An event like this couldn’t happen without sponsors. Thanks to DPAC, Word Factory, Ignite Social Media and Carolina Theatre for supporting the community and our BIG CRAZY FANTASTIC IDEAS!
Now, I know what you’re saying, “That event sounds great! I’d pay $45 to see something like that. Maybe $25 for the upper balcony.” I know. Me too. But you don’t have to. It’s Free! YES! FREE! AND! AWESOME! So tweet your BFF, make plans for an early dinner out in Durham and get on Eventbrite now.
SEE YOU ON THE 9TH!
