Learn About Ignite Phoenix

Our flagship Ignite Phoenix events feature 18 lightning-style presentations about diverse topics that are meaningful to the speaker. Each presenter has 20 slides and 5 minute — not a second more — to share their story with the most supportive audience in Phoenix. We welcome topics about anything that people are passionate about. It’s a wide criteria, but that’s the point! We’ve had presentations on hundreds of topics, including:

Whether you’re most interested in the presentations, party, or everything in between, Ignite Phoenix is the perfect place to have fun and feel “ignited” about life all over again.
