Ignite Talks

What's an Ignite talk? Four minutes on stage to talk about an idea, an interest or a passion. Our version is 15 slides that rotate automatically after 15 seconds. It's fun, it's fast, and the format forces you to really think about what you want to say.

Game? Let us know asap. This event fills up every year, so the only way to confirm a slot is to post your idea title and brief summary below.

To do a great Ignite talk, tell us about something you're passionate about, something that others should know, or some unique bit of knowledge or insight that you can impart. (And please don't do a pitch or your company creds)

I Turned 40 And Dedicated This Year To Activism Against Patriarchy

I turned 40 in January 2018 and had an overwhelming need to do more to make South Africa and the world better. It's so easy to complain about the state of the world via social media or around the braai, but I wanted to get off the couch so to speak. I hate with a passion all forms of inequality - gender inequality, race equality, class inequality - so I dedicated this year to getting active and doing more to end patriarchy and I would like to share what I have been upto so far.
