“Come enlighten your brain”: now that should be the slogan for Ignite. The event gives speakers the opportunity to talk about events and ideas that are close to their hearts. There’s one big catch: They only have five minutes and 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds to make their point. Luckily, the folks who participate in Ignite events don’t sweat much under pressure. There’s always someone new presenting and some unexpectedly funny, touching or engaging issue to be discussed.
