IGNITE 2023 Award and Fireside Chat

“We don’t dream about what we haven’t been exposed to.”
Dayna Spiring, IGNITE 2023 Recipient

IGNITE 2023, held on September 7, 2023 was a resounding success and the perfect way for the new to Asper School of Business students to kick off this new school year. The triumphant return of the IGNITE award and gala dinner, provided the opportunity to celebrate a personal welcome from Manitoba’s business leaders and to be inspired by the IGNITE 2023 recipient, Dayna Spiring. Her message, story and background provided inspiration of what is possible when you are “in the room where it happens”, standing shoulder to shoulder and brave enough to just have a conversation. Her history revealed the possibilities when perseverance, hard work and passion come together! We know that her message resonated with all present.

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported IGNITE 2023! Thank you Dayna for your leadership and all that you do for our community. Thank you to our guests, sponsors, Young Associates, Associates, Asper students, faculty and staff, volunteers and the production team.
