"I was instantly surrounded by warm welcomes from past attendees willing and able to help me navigate the rooms and connect with others who were in the know about all things development. The breakout sessions I attended offered both theoretical and practical information, and I was invigorated by the two keynote presentations. For me, the underlying theme of IGNITE was that in-person, genuine, communication matched with relationships is the most impactful way to build community across organizations"
