Ignite 12 Call for Speakers

There comes a time every year when the cry goes out across the land: “HUMANS: distill your narrative of value down to 5 minutes, and accompany it with 20 images that will auto-advance every 15 seconds.”

That time is now. That land is Ann Arbor. This .. is the Ignite Ann Arbor 12 Call for Speakers.

Ignite talks are 5 minute talks where the speaker gets 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. We think that breeds creativity, and we like to see talks on a very wide range of topics, as you can see by looking at some of the previous talks in the tabs above.

Ignite Ann Arbor 12 will take place at 6:30 pm on Thursday November 7th at the Downtown Ann Arbor District Library

YOU can give an Ignite talk. We know it. The program is selected from the applicants by the Ignite organizers based on the submitted talk titles and descriptions. We’re looking for people we don’t know, people who don’t look like us, don’t act like us, don’t think like us. We’re looking for you!

Need examples to spur you on? Click one of the Ignite tabs above to see videos from a previous event, such as Ignite 8.
