ICYMI - Ignite Phoenix 20 is in the books!

We did it! Thanks to our 12 amazing speakers and enthusiastic audience, we were able to bring Ignite Phoenix back in person at the Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts. It was wonderful to see so many new faces, but also those of you that were ready to be re-Ignited after the last few years.

If you happened to miss the show, don't worry! The entire show is available on our home page or feel free to click here to watch it on YouTube.
