Get ready to be energized by the Ignite ’16 Thought Leaders:

thoughtleader_RobertPutnamRobert Putnam, Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University, will send Ignite ’16 attendees home armed with ideas from his newest book, Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis. Putnam will offer possible approaches to narrowing the opportunity gaps increasingly faced by young people, including the roles that schools and educators can play in areas such as parental coaching, extracurricular activities, and mentoring.

thoughtleader_SekouAndrewsSekou Andrews engages audiences with his cutting-edge fusion of inspirational speaking and spoken word poetry, motivating you to give voice to your most powerful stories and become the best version of yourself to help you live up to that story. To quote Sekou, “It’s not about us, it’s about the rush of helping someone else discover himself.”
