Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest of O’Reilly Radar and Bre Pettis of Make. Since then hundreds of five minute talks have been given across the world. Besides Seattle, there are thriving Ignite communities in Portland, Sydney, NYC and a lot more.
The idea is simple: presenters are required to stick to a rigid format of 20 slides, each of which changes automatically after 15 seconds, ensuring that each presentation is exactly 5 minutes long. The format forces presenters to think long and hard about every slide.
We are pleased to announce our fantastic venue for the third Ignite London event! The Luminaire in Kilburn will be the venue sponsor for Ignite London 3 on 28th September at 7pm.
We are really excited about this venue, it proved to be a fantastic space for Ignite London 2 , it has a brilliant atmosphere, and the owner is very supportive having delivered an Ignite style talk himself .
Luminaire has won lots of awards for being a great venue: In February 2006, just eleven months after opening, Time Out magazine named The Luminaire as its Live Venue of The Year and in March 2007, two years after opening, it won Music Week’s UK Venue of The Year award. After seeing Luminaire in action as part of ignite london 2 we can understand why – it really is a great place and is a perfect fit for ignite, for our speakers and audience alike. So we are back again! Brilliant.
The address is 311 Kilburn High Road, London, NW6 7JR and it is less than 5 minutes walk from Kilburn tube station (Jubilee Line) and Brondesbury station (London Overground).
