Speakers: What’s In It For You?

Posted on 22 February 2010 by IgniteBC

For those of you considering being a presenter at an Ignite BC event, you might be surprised to find out exactly how far your five minute presentation may take you.  Ignite Events are similar to the Japanese phenomenon known as Pecha Kucha, with a few modifications and a little bit simpler.  These events are casual forums where a variety of topics are shared to an audience of peers.   Each event is captured on video and archived to the site for viewing by a wider audience unable to attend the event in person.  Each talk also becomes a part of the global Ignite parent website managed by OReilly media.

Ignite BC Badge

Ignite BC Badge for your blog

All presenters are given a badge that they can post on their website, as well as a personal bio page with links back to your blog or website.  If you care to share you slide decks with website visitors, we will also host these for you.  Your participation in an Ignite BC event will also bring you closer to a network of professionals, consultants, managers, entrepreneurs and free thinkers: you just might find someone that finally actually understands you!

Last but not least, we’re a bunch of do-gooders.  Where possible, Ignite BC donates event proceeds to a different charity.  This is where sponsorship comes in as well; most events require a fair bit of time, money and resources and your participation means we can deliver a better program which draws bigger crowds which drives more revenue which helps a good cause.
