In conjunction with our friends at CEA and the upcoming annual conference in Vancouver we're excited to be offering a great event of learning and networking on October 6th at 8PM in Richmond, BC.  Ignite Your Passion for Discovery is a powerful evening of short, energizing presentations combined with networking and engaging conversations.  This is the third season Discovery Education has hosted these events across the country.  

Ignite Your Passion for Discovery is a powerful evening of short, energizing presentations combined with networking and engaging conversations.  This is the third season Discovery Education has hosted these events across the country.  

Here's a brief summary of our events from last year to give you a better sense of these great networking events. 

This year's sub-theme is asking, "I used to _____ but now I _____" Your Stories of Transformation" Presenters will be sharing their personal stories of transformation and change. Each presenter will be sharing in the Ignite format which is a 5-minute presentation that features 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds. It's a fast-paced format to be sure. Each presentation will also end with a question that is intended to spark your curiosity and provoke conversation. 

Along with this format, you'll have a chance to network and interact with fellow educators. The evening is sponsored by Discovery Education. As community manager for Canada, it's my mission to grow and support our community and these types of events are one way we work to serve educators and connect them to their most valuable resource... each other. 

Consider a colleague who might not be connected on social media. Present it to them as a great night out, which it certainly will be, we'll just sprinkle in some inspiration and awesomeness. 

Here are a few of our confirmed speakers:

Vincent Andrisani "I used to listen to music....."
Serge Béliveau
Johnny Bevacqua "I used to like email...."
Starleigh Grass "I used to be afraid of making people uncomfortable..."
John Hodson "I used to believe school was not for me and I was cognitively impaired..." 
Chris Kennedy   "I used to blame parents....
Stephanie Kennedy "I used to hate marking..."
Claire Krueger  "I used to think in straight lines...."
Dean Shareski "I used to think community was important..."
John Tyler  "I used to be comfortable in a box..."

We'll update our speaker list in the few days and plan to have a diverse set of voices to provide compelling conversations and insights. The cost is free. We'll even buy you a drink and some food, you bring your curiosity. See you on October 6th. Space is limited.
