This is an interesting, free, gathering of hundreds of people and 10 varied speakers on varied topics. It’s held at various locations such as the downtown library, plaza theatre and much of the fun is that you never know what you are going to get. Each night has a theme such as “two”, “reclaim”, “invest”, and speakers show 20 slides of which they are allowed to speak only 20 seconds per slide. The topic is their interpretation of the theme for the evening. Lots of fun and informative too. If it’s boring, it is only 6 minutes and 40 seconds a speech! More meetings should run within those parameters! Go to Calgaryculture.ca and sign up for their newsletter so you get notified when the next night is coming up. Act fast because tickets go fast.
