Ignite is a high-energy evening bringing people who have an idea together to share stories and have fun. A 5 minute presentation is all you need to get your message out there. And it’s coming to Windsor…Phog to be more specific.
Allison Prieur is an inspired…fired-up gal in Windsor that is trying to cook something interesting up in this city…and I know it will be a huge success. We’re lucky to have someone like her in Windsor, making this kind of effort. We need to respond. We owe it to her. She put this list together, so you can participate. Beat that public-speaking-demon, or express a story you’ve been wanting to tell in a unique way for years. Here’s how.
What You Need:
A 5 minute presentation on a topic you are passionate about and 20 slides. The slides will advance automatically every 15 seconds. For ideas on why and how to do an Ignite presentation, check out this video by Scott Berkun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRa1IPkBFbg).
It’s a great way to tell a story you’ve always wanted to tell. Have you gone on a trip that you think people would be interested in? Do you work on a project you wish people knew more about? Are you convinced that people would love your favourite game if they gave it a chance? Now you can talk to a captive audience.
