About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Being Kind

Kilee Johnson



Kilee Johnson is a certified health coach, graphic designer, and gluten-free cookbook author who wants to inspire others to be happy, healthy and confident. She loves to cook, hike, and take her dog for walks along the river.

I believe that our lives could be so much more enjoyable if we all practiced the art of kindness. Starting with being kind to ourselves, then being kind to others, being kind to the earth and all of it's inhabitants, and so on. Think about it, wouldn't life be so much easier if we all just practiced kindness? My hope is to inspire others to begin with being kind to themselves and then to others. What positive impact could we have on our community if we all made the daily choice to be kind?
