Ignite Ann Arbor 11 – Nov 2nd 2018 – Call for Speakers

* Apply Now *

Ignite Ann Arbor 11 will be at 7pm on Friday Nov 2nd, 2018 at the Downtown Ann Arbor District Library! We’re excited to participate in Lobbitorium week and happy to be working with AADL! The lobby will be an auditorium, and Ignite will be there!

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.

If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers. We consider geekery to equal passion, so we’re looking for food geeks, tech geeks, business geeks, music geeks, art geeks, history geeks, etc to come and share their stories.

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!
