You are not here by accident.
We’ve searched Manila far and wide and have reason to believe you are one of us.
Here’s one way to find out.
We are CEOs, we are founders, we are investors, we are in corporate, we are in startups, we are in non-profits, we might even be in government, we are seasoned professionals, we are just starting out, we are born and bred in Manila, we are new to Manila, we believe in God, we don’t believe in god. We come from all walks – a diversity rarely seen here, but what makes us kindred spirits is the flame that burns within.
[PLACE VIDEO HERE WITH APPROPRIATE SPACING]
Here’s a peg from Steve Jobs of the flame we seek to ignite.
Do you have a restlessness that always makes a difference, yet the sense that your best is still to come?
Do you have a passion you could embrace as your life’s work, as if your whole life led to it?
Have you met a pain you are especially gifted (and compelled!) to heal? A problem so pervasive its solution could well birth the first Filipino unicorn – the first billion-dollar Filipino company to impact humanity and matter on a global scale?
Would you like to embark on the greatest journey of your life, where your greatest joy meets the world’s greatest needs – and take many others with you?
A very different kind of Silicon Valley needs to rise when one of the world’s hottest economies also hosts one of its most promising but oh-so-broken demographics.
[ABOVE COLLAGE IS OK, NICE TINT. LET'S JUST UPDATE DATE AND CIRCLE VIII] IGNITE CIRCLE VIII Saturday, 21 July 2018 12:00 pm Onwards Venue Details: B1 Townhall (ABCD) The Globe Tower 32nd St. corner 7th Ave. Bonifacio Global City, Taguig No Registration, No Entry.
What to expect in an Ignite Circle?
12:00 | Check-In: Requires online RSVP. BYOD (bring your own device) – phone, tablet or laptop with cloud access. IGNITE is a transmedia experience like you’ve never had before!
12:45 | Ignite! Gong sounds 3x – it’s time to jumpstart our circle with a visioning-presencing experience, followed by a short, powerful film, out of which we declare the Ignite Manifesto.
You’ve likely never heard anything like it. From here, we take you on an afternoon-long experience that will convince you, or disturb, that maybe you are one of us.
1:30 | Personal Discerment A group exercise journeyed alone. What ignites your deepest joy? What ignites your greatest compassion? Where do these flames intersect? Who else might be journeying on that same path?
2:30 | Pieces of the Puzzle Personal discernment meets courageous conversation meets performance art: each of us holds literally a piece of the puzzle. We thereby shape, expand, and reshape a collective force that takes on the evolving movements of our individual parts.
4:00 | Breakout We process what just happened and where we can take them going forward.
5:00 | Send Off We wrap up with a vision of possibilities and potential next steps – plus a surprise ending helped along by a healthy dose of algorithm wrapped in an individual Gift Box for each Igniter.
Happy hour, socials, and light reception follow until 9pm. Snacks and coffee will be provided throughout the Circle.
We look forward to seeing you for Ignite Circle VIII! Here’s to the crazy ones!
