What is Ignite? According to their website, “It’s a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea”.
Each speaker is given 5 minutes and 20 powerpoint slides to talk on a subject they are passionate about. All talks get recorded and put up online later for the rest of the world to watch.
A speaker can be anyone who has a good story to tell, be they artists, chefs, coders, comedians, designers, educators, entrepreneurs, musicians, photographers, students, technologists, thinkers and everything else!
If you (or someone you know) would be interested in giving a talk and spreading an idea or volunteering or sponsoring the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org =)
