You can see example ignite talks at:
Ignite is the name for a particular type of event that is held throughout the world—organized by volunteers—at which participants speak about their ideas and personal or professional passions according to a specific format. The event holds the motto, “Enlighten us, but make it quick!” The presentations are meant to "ignite" the audience on a subject, whereby awareness, thought, and action are generated on the subjects presented.
Each speaker will be responsible for covering the cost of getting to the event.
I am hoping to have a mixture of technical and non-technical sessions. I expect there will be more non-technical sessions. If you are super passionate about something and would like to share your passion then please submit a proposal.
This event will be hosted by Kevin Nilson. If you have any questions feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
