The April 15th Lineup!

Posted on 23 March 2010 by IgniteBC

Here, in no particular order, is the initial list of presentations and speakers that are planned for the Inaugural April 15th Ignite Event at Lux @ Caprice in Vancouver.  With a theme of Creation, Evolution and Revolution, this Ignite Vancouver event promises to deliver a lot in a very short period of time.  Here’s a sample of what you can expect:

1.   What Is Ignite? – A Quick Overview in the Ignite Format: Five Minutes, 20 Slides, 15 seconds per slide that auto advance.  Prepare to be enlightened, but we’ll be quick about it.

2.  The Ultimate Lesson in Social Media:  Two avid Ultimate Frisbee players share what they’ve learned from Ultimate to help shape a successful social media strategy

3.  Dressing Inappropriately:  A humorous and thought provoking look at what happens when we dare to show up as ourselves instead of conforming to societal norms.

4.  The 1965 Ford Mustang:  At the time of its release, the Mustang was seen as a revolutionary and innovative creation in contrast to the usual box-like cars coming out of Detroit.  Today, it continues to redefine and revolutionize.

5.  How to Buy A Hit Broadway Play with No Money Down:  This informative presentation takes you to New York City where IgniteBC members will learn what it takes to buy a hit theatrical show and get investors.

6.  Platypus Eggs and In House Idea Incubators:  Encouraging entrepreneurship in your company, nurturing brainstorming, and building new profitable businesses from within the enterprise.

7.  Advanced Internet Research Techniques: The Poem reveals how you can instantly improve your online search skills, evolve in your web productivity and transform how you use the web in your organization, career and life.

8.  Sustainability in Simple English:  Along with being Green, companies are adopting the phrase “Sustainability” into their business lexicon.  This presentation will show you how to identify, implement and evaluate basic sustainability practices in your business and life.

9. How I Sell Stuff to the Worlds Largest Corporations: Getting in and closing the deal with the biggest, the baddest and the best in the World.

10.  They’re NOT The Boss Of You: Really Really Useful Tips for New Parents and Expectant Parents From a New Father of Twin Boys.

And, approximately three or four more still to come…

The Inaugural Event: April 15 @ Lux

Posted on 15 March 2010 by IgniteBC

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.

Ignite Presentation Master Template

Posted on 22 February 2010 by IgniteBC

The following template is to be used to deliver an Ignite BC presentation.  Please crunch whatever details you can into  this template.  Note that you are not only limited to the  number of slides, but also the time allotted to each slide.  Five minutes, twenty slides, fifteen seconds a slide.  If you move too fast through one… doesn’t matter.   You only get fifteen seconds per slide.  So construct your presentations accordingly.

Download it here:

Ignite Presentation Master

Now, some of you might be saying “What do you mean? I only have fifteen seconds per slide?”  Well, I would propose that 15 seconds is probably more than adequate, considering that most advertisers can get their message across in less than 30 seconds.  You, on the other hand, have five minutes to present!  And you’re telling me you need MORE TIME than that?

C’mon!  Download the template, and get cracking!  We’re waiting to be amazed, and we’re giving you a full five minutes of our undivided and uninterrupted attention!  When was the last time anyone REALLY gave you a full five minutes of their time, anyways?
