In a previous post on volunteering, I metioned my work with Ignite Phoenix. It is a powerful force for creativity, energy and bringing communities together.
I attended Ignite Phoenix 1 more than a year ago. I was blown away by the willingness of people to stand up and talk about thier passion, the support from the audience and the creative minds connecting. When Jeff Moriarty and Roger Williams asked for volunteers to organize the next one, I jumped at the opportunity. I’ve been working the events ever since.
Have you ever had a great planning meeting? One where everyone is at least supporting the discussions and when innovative and powerful ideas just seem to flow? Have you seen a speech or concert or movie that left you moved, passionate and uplifted? Fireworks in your head as the passionate presentation awakens power, connections and creativity in your own mind. This is Ignite Phoenix for me, for 18, five-minute presentations in a row. A brainstorming session of 550+ people led by 18 presenters with passion!
OK, so maybe it’s not directly Agile or Scrum related, but it is powerful. It recharges me to work with a fabulous “naturally agile” team. And the power of team building, on a huge scale, is on display. I love it!
- If you have passion to present, please submit your idea by Friday, October 2nd.
- If you are in the Phoenix, Arizona area on November 3rd, you should be at Ignite Phoenix 5.
- We’ll be at The Tempe Center for the Arts in the 600-seat theater. Watch the web site for updates on ticket availability.
