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.
Lions and Tigers and Babies??? Oh my! How I survived the first year as a new parent
When I asked myself what could I possibly present at Ignite I thought.... what the heck am I passionate about and what of my experiences would people find interesting. My resume would show that I grew up on a small dairy farm in Vermont. I hold two bachelor degrees. I've traveled. I've hiked the Long Trail (300 miles). I've fought fire, worked with underprivileged teens and now I'm a cardiac nurse. Two years ago I had a ski accident which destroyed my left knee, so my activities have been close to nil. Oh, and I had a baby. WHAT?!?! Not only did I have a kid, but I survived her first year while holding down a full-time job and being a single mother. Shoot, I could talk about that all day. But I won't. Maybe for just five minutes. Maybe I can educate parents and non-parents alike as to how anyone can do it.
