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.

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.

Sponsorship: An Overview

Posted on 23 February 2010 by IgniteBC

IgniteBC is a group of professionals that voluntarily organize and promote the Ignite presentation formats.  In most cases, expenses are either covered by the individual organizers, or are modestly offset by ticket sales – the balance of which goes to charity.  By choosing to support an IgniteBC event, you are aligning yourself with several different audiences which include:

  • Young professionals seeking an outlet and sources of feedback for their ideas
  • A global community of a wide range of public speakers
  • A network of connected professionals in support of their peers
  • A community driven event that takes place every couple months that continues to grow in reach and influence

Support is accepted in a manner of formats that is most convenient to you.  You can start small, and simply attend an event.  Your attendance helps to validate the merit and draw of IgniteBC events to the participating venue.  If you wish to help out, you can also volunteer your time – which is always appreciated since we are all folks that have families and long commutes after work.  You can also go one step farther by donating prizes for contestants, guest presenters and door prizes.   And then there’s just good old fashioned money.   Any financial support is captured through our Event Ticketing Solution: EventBright.  Click here to view available sponsorship packages, or to buy a ticket for the next event.
