Sam from Craft Butchery, CTMQ, + more to talk at Ignite Stamford #2

2 May

Ignite Stamford #2 is just around the corner on May 9 at 7 pm at the Stamford Innovation Center.  If you’ve been following us for a bit, you might remember that we were one of the speakers at the first event. We really had a blast speaking and loved hearing other people’s stories, too. Here’s how Ignite Stamford works:

  • Speakers will create 20 slides
  • Each slide auto advances ever 15 seconds, making up five quick minutes
  • Any topic is fair game (see the last speaker’s ideas)
  • Stick to the motto: Enlighten us but keep it short

Here are the speakers with their topics and pics from the Ignite Stamford blog.  Check out the full details of the speakers by visiting the Ignite Stamford site.  And, make sure to get your tickets ($11.54) before they are sold out! We’ve put in descriptions of our Twiend (Twitter friend) Kristen, Sam Garwin from Saugatuck Craft Butchery, and CT’s favorite blogger, Steve Wood from Connecticut Museum Quest (he also writes about CT beer, food, and wine).
