Passion. Community Service. Fun.


Ignite Talks is a national speaking series platform with the first Ignite event taking place in Seattle, WA (2006). Each event has followed the same format: 14 speakers. 5 minutes per speaker. 20 slides each. 15 seconds per slide. Auto-advancing. It’s up to the community to bring the variety and showcase their passionate personalities.

The Ignite speaker series was brought to DFW in 2015 and was established as a quarterly event to inspire community members to celebrate, talk about, and live their inner geeky passions. We aspire to provide a platform for all community members to teach the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area something that they are passionate about.



We are a group of community leaders from around the Dallas/Fort Worth area who are in-the-know individuals. We work year-round to recruit speakers, sign-on sponsors, plan quarterly events, and promote IgniteDFW in our respective communities. We get the community involved, make everyone sound good, and have fun in the progress.
