Ignite goes global—from February 7-11, 2011, 50+ Ignites will take place in cities around the world. Upwards of 10,000 entrepreneurs, technologists, DIYers, creative professionals, and enthusiastic knowledge-seekers will gather in local pubs, theaters, and other convivial venues for an evening that is a unique blend of networking, information, and fun, encapsulated in the Ignite motto: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.”
In talks that are exactly five minutes long, Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.

The inaugural Ignite Vancouver will be held April 15 at Lux @ Caprice. The capacity of the venue is approximately 80 people, with room for speakers, stage, etc.
We already have a solid lineup of speakers for the event, but if you are interested in participating, we’re always happy to find a way and make room for you. Ignite Vancouver follows a simple format: 5 minutes, 20 slides, with each slide auto-advancing every 15 seconds. Come explain your passion, and spread the word! If you know of someone you’d love to see at Ignite Vancouver, tell them about it and ask them to participate, too. There’s no limit to the subject matter (within reason): think of an Ignite Event like an open mike night to raise awareness and inspire others.
Currently on the bill:
An entertainment industry leader talking about the evolution of television
An SEO expert that will reveal more about the inner workings of the 8000lb Gorilla
A dad that will give new and expecting parents the inside track to reclaiming 3 hours of sleep each night
A couple of funnymen
A couple of funny women
An event promoter with a unique spin on the economy of entertainment
A sustainability expert to help explain what sustainability is in simple English
A talk on business incubation within the enterprise
… and possibly even a few more. All said, the event is slated to be about 2 hours long, including the contest. This is also a licensed event and all persons attending or presenting must be of legal age.
All speakers should fill out the talk proposal form (below), to indicate you are interested in speaking.
The application deadline is 11:59pm, March 12 – so there’s still time! Download the Powerpoint slide template from this site, and submit a deck to us by the 20th of March. If we have room on this event you will be notified by March 25, otherwise we’ll schedule you for the next event. We’re looking forward to hear what you have to say!
