Top 10 Tweets of Ignite Miami

ignite_Miami_small Logo Jeff ZelayaIgnite Miami officially gave birth on the evening of Tuesday, May 29th. The Design District’s “The Stage” was filled at capacity with an audience in the hundreds. The goal of the night was to inspire, educate and engage the audience. Mission Accomplished!

Let’s re-live the most memorable moments of Ignite Miami through my carefully selected Top 10 Tweets List. 

10) Adam Boalt kicked off #IgniteMia as the first speaker of the first Ignite Miami. Quite a bit of pressure but he rose to the occasion with his presentation on “Hacking Innovation” rBB PR summed up his presentation quite well with the tweet below.

9) Annush nailed it with the tweet below. The energy in the room was ELECTRIC! I know now why they call it Ignite….they were sparks of energy everywhere.

8 ) We could have made a fortune for charity if we would have followed David’s advice in the tweet below. We all know that there is no censoring the famous Carlos Miller. In all I counted about 8 F Bombs.  C’mon Carlos…you can do better than that. Let’s aim for at least 10 next time.

7) Maria de Los Angeles talked about the Little #Hashtag that could. How global ideas can start right in our backyard. Dr. Geeta Nayyar summed up her presentation in the tweet below. Maria you killed me when you actually played the It’s a Small world after all song. Nice touch!

6) One of my favorite presentations was Gladys Diaz’s “Ignite Your Love Life”. She provided great practical advice and as a newlywed I really appreciate all the great tips that she shared. Betcha your butt I took some very good notes during her presentation. Message me if you want them. My favorite tip is below! Women listen to Gladys!!!

Women Keep it to Headlines

5) Ignite Miami would not have been possible without an appropriate venue. Thanks to the Stage Miami for provided a great space. For many it was their first time there but I’m sure it won’t be their last. The Stage Miami even created a special Ignitor drink for the event. How freaking cool is that? Yes, I agree @AmyStarlight

4) David Bisset was one of my favorite twitters of the night. Notice he made my top 10 list twice. That’s just as many times as the “face eating/zombie” story came up tonight. Leave it to #IgniteMia to be relevant and current. But yea…I agree it is too soon. Could we at least have waited till next week?

3) Jenny Lee Molina’s talk was about crossing things off your bucket list. She was an exemplary leader by checking off two things off her bucket list in 5 minutes. She did public speaking in front of the biggest crowd ever and she followed that up by giving away $100 to a stranger in the audience. Well done Jenny Lee! Now you know how Oprah feels when she gives away stuff.

2) As you can tell from all these fabulous tweets the #ignitemia hashtag was really busy that night. So much so that we started trending in #Miami according to @Allantd’s tweet below.

1) And the number one tweet of the night goes to Brenda Leguisamo! She summed up exactly how I felt. A BIG HUGE THANK YOU, to Alex DC, Janie C and Lori Todd for organizing this amazing event and making the vision come alive. Love you guys!

      Thanks Carlos! Couldnt go straight to sleep so put the time to good use. My wife now knows that photography is not boring, at least not when Carlos Miller does it.

    Jeff –

    Thank you kindly.

    It was a privilege to listen to your talk at Ignite – I know now how to focus my attention to those red bottoms!

    All in all, a fabulous night in Miami filled with exciting and refreshing ideas.

    Looking forward to your continued success,

      Thank you Allan. Indeed it was a great night! Tedx Miami will be equally as exciting and filled with great ideas. Looking forward to you and your team heading that up. As you can from last night there is DEFINTELY a hunger in Miami for these types of events.

  2. Lori Todd

    Jeff, It was great seeing you and meeting your beautiful wife. Your presentation was electrifying! I hadn’t yet seen you speak in public (how had it not happened before) and I can honestly say that I am so glad I did.

    Thank you for supporting Ignite Miami, participating and spreading the love!

  3. Alex de Carvalho

    Jeff, thank you for this post and for the kind words. It is indeed electrifying to feel all the love and support from the community and to learn about the cool things the speakers presented. I hope we will create more opportunities like this. To me, this was a “red bottom” experience!

  4. Gladys Diaz

    Thanks for the recap and the acknowledgement! I’m glad you enjoyed the presentation! I was inspired, entertained, and challenges by the topics. Who knew Tech Events were so much fun! I’m excited to start getting more involved with this community! Thanks everyone for making the 1st Ignite Miami possible! We made history together!
