"Ten Design Lessons from Rally Racing"

Modern Edge CEO, Austen Angell, will give a talk on the “Ten Design Lessons from Rally Racing” tonight at Alberta Rose Theatre for the almost sold out TAO Ignite Event.

400 people in the audience. 15 speakers, 5 minutes each (maximum) 20 slides (auto-advance) and the closing speaker slot – no pressure!


What is Ignite? Ignite is a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by local people who have a burning idea and the guts to get onstage and share their personal and professional passions. Quick, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, and global – Ignite is all of these and more. This Ignite is focused on all things tech.
