Save the date for September 17th!  Ignite Charlotte is coming back around and the Carolina Girl Geek Dinners are excited to be the Icebreaker Hosts this time.  If you haven’t been to an Ignite Charlotte event, you are in for an inspiring and thought provoking evening.

The event entails a series of community members sharing their personal and professional passions, 5 minute at a time using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.  The talks range from community empowerment to technology to even vultures.
