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)

Why are some of us FAT

Not fat shamming, but it is still a weaker currency to be fat and plump in today's day and age. Strangely being fat goes back to our mindset, our subconcious, our beliefs and mostly our fears - as compared to the food we eat. I am fat and this theory is not verified. Hear it out and see if this works for you!

Smother the anti-stories before they suffocate your change

What Kryptonite is to Superman, anti-stories are to any communication exercise. Especially those dealing with change. That is because stories based on something that actually happened in the past are usually more powerful than stories we want to write about how the future will be. We can never fight an anti-story with a fact. We need to replace it with another story. I will share how.

Ironman is an endurance race consisting of long distance swimming, biking and running which many feel its far and beyond one’s reach. In this session, I plan to introduce the sports, challenged the myth and hope to have some IM streamers in 2019!
