Event Details

Ignite San Diego is an evening of 5-minutes lightning talks from a diverse group of San Diegans.

Each speaker has five minutes on stage with 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. In those five minutes they can share ANY idea or topic with the audience: a story, a passion, a hobby, a discovery, a pet peeve, a solution. WHATEVER. 

Without further ado, in no particular order, since we never reveal the lineup until the night of the event, here are your Ignite San Diego #8 speakers!

  • Beth Accomando – Zombies for Humanity: No Brains, Big Hearts
  • Max Rosenthal – Section 5250 and Me
  • Karin Zirk – Why Myths Matter
  • Denise St. Onge – Why America Needs Compulsory National Service
  • Kevin Corcoran – A Life-Changing Lesson from Farting in Yoga…

  • Sherry Nouraini – My Horton Helped Me Hear the Who, Yours Can Help You Too!
  • Luke Schrotberger – How My Dead Dad Helped Me Become an Ironman
  • Nicola Peill-Moelter – The Circuitous Journey of a Tree-Hugging Capitalist
