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.

Facts and Truth: The Difference, and How to Exploit It

Nick Reese



I'm a copywriter, which means my job is to take boring facts you already knew and turn them into truths that inspire you to act.

Milk has calcium, which gives you strong bones. That is a fact. Milk goes great with the foods like cookies or peanut butter. That is a truth. Facts are boring. Truths are fascinating. We can disagree about facts but will always agree on truths. Facts can even be fabricated; truths are, well, true. This talk will examine the difference between facts and truths and how to use the idea of truths over facts to be a better, more insightful, and more successful communicator.
