Kate McGwire

Speaker | Thought Leader | Humanitarian

BIO:

Kate McGwire was part of Mike & Kate in the Morning on Mix 106 until early 2016. She is now the Public Information Officer for Ada County. Kate is known for being outspoken, a little off kilter and a lot passionate. She spent 15 years in Boise motivating other women, helping those less fortunate and entertaining the Treasure Valley. Now she is on a personal journey; motivating herself, taking care of herself and spending time entertaining herself. Some would call it selfish, Kate calls it, “right where she needs to be.” Through this process of getting to know herself, she empowers those who hear her story. Good news for us, one of the first things she learned was that she’s still funny!

Talk Title: #JumpingOffTheGlass

Talk Description:

“She was standing there, on the edge of outta‐control….” That’s the first line of one of my favorite Pat Green songs and it describes perfectly my life at the beginning of 2016. After pouring my heart and soul into my broadcasting career for 20 years, I jumped off the edge of outta control. I left the only career I’d ever know. I was on the #1 morning show, on the #1 radio station, at the top of my game and I jumped off a cliff into the unknown.

I conquered a male dominated industry by making up my own rules (and shocking a few people along the way). Society told me being on top was what I wanted. Society told me it defined my worth and my level of success. Instead, I chose to listen to the crazy girl, screaming her head off in my heart. Sometimes the thing that scares you the most, is the only thing to do. My session at Women Ignite Idaho will hopefully empower you to take that leap of faith in your life and go against the system, even when they all think you’re crazy…. especially when they think you’re crazy! See you in October!

Kristal Adams

Speaker | Comedian |Thought Provoker KristalAdams.com

BIO:

Kristal was supposed to be a dancer. That fell apart at age 11. She was supposed to be in musical theater. That fell through at age 13. She was supposed to be an actor. But doors continued to slam in her face. After 31 years of being really good at a lot of things and yet having none of those things bear fruit or bring true joy, she ended up on a stage, with a microphone, performing stand up comedy to hundreds of people.

Something that no one saw coming. She now performs in shows all over Los Angeles, as well as various festivals, including the 2016 Idaho Laugh Fest. She is also the founder of little girl, big laugh productions through which she has produced several comedy shows aimed at quality and diversity. One of the shows is called Treat Yo’self: A show for women, by women, which features a diverse lineup of female performers for an all female audience.

Talk Title: #WhoseDreamIsThisAnyway

Talk Description:

If you’ve always been told that you’re good a lot of things, how do you choose one of those things to fully pursue? How can you make sure that you’re living the true calling on your life and not someone else’s best guess based off of limited data. Often a tiny seed of a desire within us can speak louder than our most obvious talents and abilities, if we learn how to listen to it. Come discover a passion that will take you further than your talent.

Megan Bryant

BIO:Speaker |Comedian| Facilitator | Author MeetMeganBryant.com

Megan Bryant is a comedian and the creator of Idaho Laugh Fest, Idaho’s first and only full‐scale comedy festival. She is the co‐founder of Zip Zap Zop and facilitates experiential team building workshops that utilize the founding principles of improvisation. Megan is the author of Not My Plan, an autobiography recounting an unplanned pregnancy she hid from the world seventeen years ago, ultimately choosing to place her first born for adoption. She currently resides in Boise Idaho with her husband and three (almost four) young children.

Talk Title: #NotMyPlan

Talk Description:

Adoption is a personal and permanent choice that it impacts all parties in a very deep, ongoing way. It creates a special connection between families. As a “good little Mormon girl,” it was definitely not MY plan to get pregnant my senior year in high school, but through the experience of placing my firstborn for adoption, I’ve realized it was all part of a greater plan. Join me on a journey through my hidden pregnancy, with insight into how it’s going 17 years later. Peek into my life and experience with adoption, and tap into the power of sharing true stories that open up dialogue for deeper connections with others.
