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.

Where are your manners?

Lisa Canady



Lisa is the owner or Eclipse Marketing, a media and marketing agency in Bend. She is also the mother of a 3 year old boy and it has been this experience, more than anything, that has altered her perspective and way of looking at the world.When Lisa is not working to juggle business and family, she is spending time outside kayaking, biking, and hiking. Lisa and her family have lived in Bend for ten years.

A humorous and potentially eye opening series of observations from every day life about how we interact as a community and society. These observations are often initiated by the unvarnished remarks of a three year old; embarrassing, but often true! This presentation will chronicle my shift from simply observing basic behaviors to trying to subtly change them in myself and others. Perhaps we might all find ourselves profoundly happier if we would just try to remember our manners.
