IGNITE is a success in second year at IHRSA 2014

IHRSA Vice President - Member Experience Pam O'Donnell introduces the IGNITE presenters.IGNITE was a new feature that IHRSA trotted out at last year’s IHRSA Annual International Convention & Trade Show in Las Vegas. It was a big hit again in 2014 with 12 select speakers picked from a large batch of applicants.

The speakers had a wide range of titles (VPs, group exercise instructors, regional directors, IHRSA staff, and more), places of work (US, Australia, Ireland) and subjects (It’s Time to Change; Secret of Being a Go-Getter; How to Be a Successful Team; etc.).

There were two sessions each with six speakers. They had five minutes and a maximum of 20 slides to talk about something they are passionate about. Presenters were current IHRSA members and could not use the time to sell a product. At the end of each session the speakers lined up and answered questions for the audience.

Here are a few of the IGNITE presentations.
