If you missed your chance to apply to speak this year, you can always “apply“ to be in the audience this year.
Don’t forget those talks! We would love hear from you next year.
We usually call for speakers about two months before each Ignite event. We ask you to submit a short description of your idea. A panel of judges reviews each submission in order to select 20 speakers. We announce those speakers about a month ahead of time.
First things ﬁrst: there arenʼt any rules when it comes to proposing an Ignite talk. We donʼt place any automatic restrictions on subject matter and youʼre free to submit anything you like. Each proposal is judged equally and on its own merits.
That said, our goal is to assemble an interesting program that will inspire the audience and get them talking. So in order to help meet that goal, weʼve put together some notes on what we are and arenʼt looking for in hopes that itʼll help you formulate your thoughts.
Keeping the following in mind, then adding liberal doses of individuality and creativity, will significantly improve the odds of your talk getting chosen.
