Like every Ignite Liverpool there is a mix of Life stories, ideas, passions, and a rant or two in a fantastic mix from some awesome speakers at our event on the 15th July. Let’s take a look at what are a fine selection of speakers.
Bala Croman – Liverpool Food Assembly
The idea is a French concept that came to the UK last year. The aim is to enable people to buy produce from local producers in a simple and convenient way. The Food Assembly started in France 3 years ago and has now expanded to Spain, Germany, the UK and Italy, working with over 4000 sustainable producers and 500,000 customers.
The Food Assembly has recently won the BBC Food and Farming Awards for the best Food Initiative.

Tom Strodtbeck – When Life Gives you Lemons, Write the Greatest Symphony Ever- Beethoven and How We Think About Innovation
The 5th Symphony changed Western music, primarily because it was so different and so good, but also because it changed the way people thought about music. It opened up a whole new inventory of ideas to audiences and composers. Follow @tom_strodtbeck on Twitter

Revealing the truth of how it works and what it can do with a little humour.

Mark Feltham – WEIRD SEX
We don’t have loads of details on this but I think the title says it all and with Mark’s twitter handle featuring the number of the beast this could be a bit weird indeed. @MarkFeltham666
Helen W – Living on a narrow boat
Dispelling the romantic myths of a life on a barge.
Plus we’ll be challenging Tom Williamson, a regular at Ignite who is raising money for Liverpool Women’s Hospital through a Flag based challenge involving 20 slides, 5 minutes and 80 flags. Read more about his challenge here and help
Pitch and Put at the Break
Don’t forget if you have a project that you want to talk about then at the end of the break we have our Pitches section – which gives audience members the opportunity 1 minute to jump up on stage and tell the rest of teh world (especially those watching at home) about a great project, event or maybe even just about something they are proud of. We make an announcement about this during the break so listen out.
See you there!!
