If you had five minutes on stage what would you say?
What knowledge burns within you or what idea have you had that really needs to be shared?
What if you only got 20 slides and they changed automatically after 15 seconds?
Around the world people have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers. Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 and since then 100s of 5 minute talks have been given across the world.
Now Ignite is coming to Bristol as part of Global Ignite Week. Across the world
Igniters will gather in pubs, theatres, and other convivial venues for an evening that is a unique blend of networking, information, and fun, encapsulated in the Ignite motto: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” In talks that are exactly five minutes long, Ignite speakers share their passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds—whether they’re ready or not.
Global Ignite Week is both an in-person and online event. Local Ignites, including Bristol, will film their talks which will be available after the event in the Ignite online archive. At least 500 five-minute session videos will be available on the new Ignite video site, to be launched in conjunction with the event. For a sampling of the best Ignite videos, see the current Ignite Show channel on YouTube.
