About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Ignite AdBite

Published on December 30, 2009

Ignite AdBite will be held on Thursday, January 28.

Just when you thought it was safe to venture into the next decade conducting business as usual…we have a unique and inspiring way to jump start the New Year.

Rather than just one speaker at the next AdBite on Thursday, January 28, we’re going to have Ignite AdBite.

Following the Ignite Bend format, 12 speakers will be chosen and given five minutes each to make a presentation on the topic of their choice. The one uniting theme is: What inspires you?

To be one of the presenters, simply submit your topic along with a brief one paragraph synopsis of what you will be communicating to AdFed Programs Committee Chair, Georell Bracelin.

The dozen presenters will be chosen based on the same criteria as Ignite Bend. Specifically: We are looking for talks that will inspire and teach; no recruiting, service or product pitches.

Deadline for entries is Wednesday, December 30. Presenters will be announced Monday, January 4 – giving a full 23 days to perfect your five minutes of fame.
