Speakers: We are excited to bring you a roster of incredible speakers and presenters this year. We have some of our Keynote Speakers up on the Conference Website already and will be added a couple more soon!

Please note, Wab Kinew is seeking a nomination for the NDP in Manitoba. As such, he will no longer be able to join us at IGNITE. We have a replacement that is fantastic and we are very excited about the addition to our keynote speakers. He's a compelling speaker, a world renowned author and a human rights activist and his profile will be up on the Speaker page soon… Stay tuned!
