May 7, 2015, Triad Stage Every invention, innovation, enterprise and world changing movement begins with a spark. It’s a nudge in the mind that asks “What if?” It’s the clarity that precedes action. Sparks are powerful and fragile. They need a response in order to grow into flame. We want to celebrate the sparks that are catching fire in our region and initiate the next sparks to change our world.
In 2015, we were looking for individuals whose ideas and passions have created sparks through personal growth and action; through research and technology; through business; or through community development. Our speakers had a story to tell about their personal and professional activities that engaged and connected with us in many ways.
