Tampa, Florida – August 5, 2015 – Ignite! Tampa Bay is a high-energy evening designed to inspire, educate, entertain and spark new ideas and conversations across cultures and disciples of the Tampa Bay Community. The evening’s emcee will be Jane Castor, former Tampa Chief of Police who recently retired.
With fast-paced, bite-sized presentations community members get on stage and share their personal or professional passion. It’s a great opportunity to meet smart, interesting people and maybe even learn something. Presenters have five minutes and 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds. At Ignite! Tampa community members involved in technology, arts, education, non-profit, communications, and government sector and more will take the stage to answer this challenge.
The first round of speakers for Ignite! Tampa Bay have be selected, and talks include:
• Kevin Jenkins – Flow-State: How to Become 500% More Productive
• Bett Correa – Zen of Software Development
• Brian Di Vito – Musings from a hospital patient -with 16yrs experience

• Michael J Kelly – My Radical Sabbatical (77 days in an RV crossing the U.S. with 3 kids under 5)
• Dino Eladis – Slaying the Big Hairy Monster
• Sabah Karimi – The Joy of Missing Out (JOMO)
