Ignite presenters have a condensed time to convey a story to the audience.The following are fast-paced presentations conducted in five minutes with 20 slides, each slide advancing automatically every 15 seconds. We will hear from:
- Wood Shop Workers’ Co-op

- Glitter Bean Café and the International Centre for Co-operative Management
- Sustainability Solutions Group
- Vancouver Renewable Energy Co-op

Chirs Nicols co-owner of the Wood Shop Worker’s co-op will lead out the Ignite worker co-op profiles. They share their story of the worker co-op’s supportive employment best practices, an inspiring story.
Our sincere thanks to the presenters and to the CWCF for permission to rebroadcast these presentations.
Thank you for listening. Below is the iconic Dolly Parton tune which is considered a worker co-op anthem to some folks.
