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.

Owning Your "A" Game

Diane Alen


website currently in transition

New York City trained violinist Diane Allen has performed well over 1,000 concerts in front of thousands of people. At the start of her career, when it was time to audition for jobs, her nerves would prevent her from showing her high skill level. Through trial and error, Diane developed a system that allowed her to overcome her nerves and perform at her best anytime, anywhere, no matter how high the pressure. In 1998 Diane was recruited to move to Bend. She spent 15 years teaching 100's of local kiddos how to play the violin and for 15 years was the concertmaster of the Central Oregon Symphony.

Do your personal best moments come and go like the wind? If you think of an Olympic gold medal winner, it wasn’t one personal best moment that won them the gold. It was years of accumulating personal best moments. Their success relied on their ability to consistently operate in a peak state. Their success relied on them knowing how to duplicate those personal best moments and build on them. What would your daily life be like if you knew your personal path to unwavering excellence? Would you gain greater confidence? Enjoy greater fulfillment? Would you say an enthusiastic "YES" to new opportunities? Would you reach your goals? I'm excited to share with Ignite Bend's 15th audience my own discoveries with attaining peak performance as a violinist. I plan to show people their own personalized way to tap in and rock their "A" game and to be able to do it at will.
