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.

Happiness and Beyond: Finding Your Power and Purpose in an Age of Comfort and Consciousness

Ken Streater



Ken Streater led wilderness rafting youth exchanges in Siberia, pioneered first river descents in Norway, Bolivia, and beyond, and most enjoys drifting the Deschutes with family and friends. As a real estate adviser to the country’s top companies and wealthiest individuals Ken facilitates their purchases of multi-million dollar properties. As the author of “The Gift of Courage” (Meryl Streep calls it “one of the good news stories that resonate within every life”) Ken helped himself and helps others realize what matters most.

I've uncovered a well-known secret: Happiness is a product of knowing what you want and doing what you love. But there is more! Satisfaction comes from discovering and sharing your unique gift and personal greatness. Joy is found in coming alive as you serve others and lift the state of the world. And serenity is realized in the gratitude of moments and life done right and well. Here is what really matters: Find your purpose and then boldly use it to enliven the world. I’ll share how I did this and how you can too.
