IGNITE AGC! is like nothing you've experienced before.

Here’s how it works: Our hand-selected presenters have been asked to prepare a talk on something they’re truly passionate about—and we have no idea what their topics are! They each get 20 slides, which automatically advance every 15 seconds. The result is a fast-and-fun presentation which lasts just five minutes. 

Join us for this casual hour of entertaining and inspiring presentations! Brews and snacks will be served.
