Event description

Description

Ignite Abbotsford is all about generating positive and meaningful conversations in our community about mental health and wellness. Prepare for an evening of big ideas and powerful storytelling, all with the intent of increasing awareness and understanding about how we can support all members of our community.


IGNITE IS A SERIES OF SPEEDY PRESENTATIONS


Ignite Abbotsford presenters get 20 slides, which automatically advance every 15 seconds. The result is a fast and fun presentation which lasts just 5 minutes. Ignite Abbotsford is a laid back, informal event designed to allow ideas to be shared with plenty of opportunities to network and connect with everyone who attends the event.
