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.

Mirror, Mirror On the Wall: Do These Big Girl Panties Make My Butt Look Big? A fairy tale for our modern age.

Lisa Flynn



A serial entrepreneur who considers the launch pad home. Fueled by bright ideas, smart cookies, and making problems flinch. A perpetual student in the game of life, who takes notes and draws conclusions. Believes lessons are better learned the hard way, and enjoys long walks on the plank. Occasionally makes bad decisions, but appreciates that they result in good stories wrought with humor and education.

Growing up, I was sold and bought the fairy tale -- you know the one where the beautiful princess has a problem, then the chivalrous prince and his trusty steed storm in and save the day, where upon they all live happily ever after. Imagine my surprise when I grew up, entered the “real world”, and got knocked on my ass, only to discover the only Prince in sight was now an “Artist Formerly Known As”, utterly indifferent to my problems. This is the story of a damsel who has been to the abyss and back again, and the invaluable lessons I learned when I finally woke up and realized that... (Oh, come on, you didn’t think I was going to spoil the ending, did you???)
