IGNITE Tampa the fourth time

Filed under: ignite,Peter Radizeski,Unique Ideas — Monday, March 24, 2014 @ 8:48 am

The IGNITE Tampa Bay committee made a call for speakers today for the 4th IGNITE Tampa event. It came on the morning that Hugh MacLeod’s weekly email had these two very appropriate cartoons.

Hugh Macleod @ gapingvoid is a great inspiration to me. IGNITE is all about a speaker taking 5 minutes to display his passion to the audience. Do you have passion you want to share with Tampa? If so, submit your speaking proposal online today! If not, come listen to the some great speakers igniting the community.

What Makes a Great IGNITE Talk?

Filed under: CrankyBastards,events,Peter Radizeski,Unique Ideas — Sunday, March 17, 2013 @ 10:35 pm

We are in the middle of organizing IGNITE Tampa Bay #3, which will be held on April 25th, 2013. Doors at the Tampa Theatre open at 6.

For such an awesome venue, we want some awesome talks.

IGNITE is a global format like Pecha Kucha and TED. We refer to it as TED Lite. The tag line is “Enlighten us, but make it quick!”

It is 5 minutes, 300 seconds – with 20 slides auto-advancing every 15 seconds.

So what goes into a great IGNITE talk? Passion and Ethusiasm – What do you Love?

The committee in Tampa Bay chooses the speakers based on mainly 4 criteria:

  1. The Headline – in all of marketing that is most important
  2. Speaker bio – keep it brief and relevant – it’s just a 5 minute talk
  3. Topic Description – be clear, be concise, be descriptive, don’t repeat the headline
  4. Are You Known – has anyone on the committee heard you speak or what does Google or Twitter say.

I know that doesn’t sound fair, but you have control over 3 of the most important factors.

There are many articles to help you out – like this good one or this one. Or watch some of the videos from the other two we held. We aren’t looking for perfect but we are looking for passion, focus, and concise – 5 minutes is long and short.

{UPDATE} I wrote about this before, so sorry for the repeat. But some good links on the original post too.

Another really good one in slideshare!
