The Next Ignite: June 24th

Posted on 25 April 2010 by IgniteBC

The April 15th event was a massive success, and with it came many requests for another one!  So, without further adieu, preparations are now officially underway for Ignite Vancouver II.  The next event is June 24th, and it promises to be a ground breaker on may levels!

Wanna Earn $100 a MINUTE?  Read on!

The next event will be a little different in that we will be awarding a prize of $500 to the best presentation of the night! Presentations will be judged based on votes from the audience via a Twitter polling solution.  Everyone in the audience can vote for each presenter once.  50% of the vote will be audience generated, and 50% of the vote will come from the Ignite Organizing Team.  If you would like to participate in this event, please submit your presentation idea ASAP because its a first-come-first-served basis!  We will publish the final lineup on May 25th, and we will require your FINAL presentation to be submitted to us by June 10th.  The sooner you complete your submission, the better your chances of getting in and getting the pick of where you want to be in the final lineup.

June 24 – Another Try for a Contest!

Posted on 25 April 2010 by IgniteBC

Okay, so the last contest didn’t really happen.  Sorry about that, and believe me I was thoroughly disappointed that it don’t go off as planned.  Not a lot of people got there early enough, and… well… better luck next time.

Well, the next time has been planned, and this contest will be something that EVERYONE can participate in, if they are so inclined.  Here’s a quick overview of what we have planned:

Given that Ignite Events are all about public speaking, we’re going to have a challenge that is somewhat consistent to the overall program – that is, we will give all contestants a passage to read up on stage.  The passage will be exactly the same for everyone.  The person that can read the most number of words – without making a mistake in ten seconds – will win a prize.

But, there’s a catch:  (ah yes… there is ALWAYS a catch, isn’t there?)

The passage that you will read will be a very complex and difficult tongue twister.

Good thing we’re doing this at the beginning of the night, eh?

Super Genius Contests: The Most Awesomest Paper Airplane

Posted on 22 February 2010 by IgniteBC

The first IgniteBC will also feature a challenge to all attendees to create The Mother of All Paper Airplanes Ever!

Paper Airplane Contest

Paper Airplane Contest

Submissions will be evaluated using multiple criteria including aesthetic design, fold complexity, uniqueness, performance and overall coolness.  All planes are to be manufactured onsite, using supplied 11 X 17 paper.  There is no restriction on size, only that each submission can use one sheet of paper.  No scissors or sharp objects of any kind are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own craft implements, crayons, glue, and paperclips if necessary.

No cheating, either.  If you bring a pre-made plane, and we catch you, you’ll have to buy each of the presenters a round.  And no sabotage or schemes to impede someone else’s chances:  if you get caught doing that, you’ll have to buy the other person AND the presenters all their rounds for the rest of the night.

Teams can be formed to collaborate on the final design, but only one pilot must be declared for the plane’s maiden voyage.  The pilot will only have one chance to fly their plane.  Winners of the contest will be announced at the conclusion of the event, approximately 15 minutes after the last speaker.

By the way, we are still working on prizes.  If anyone wants to donate any corporate swag for this contest, we’d be more than happy to give you props on the Sponsorship section of the website.  If we don’t secure any sponsors, then rest assured you will receive – at the very least – a framed certificate that proves once and for all that you are the man with the plan (or woman, as the case may be… it just rhymed better).

Here is a draft of the Certificate of Aerodynamic Super Genius:

Good luck!
