Ignite Salt Lake 5
Unlike a regular presentation where the speaker has a bit of time to make the speech, Ignite style talks are extremely regimented with only 20 slides being allowed, with 15 seconds per slide. The total presentation is 5 minutes!
My topic is “How I got involved with the stupidest man on Earth and emerged unscathed (mostly).” It’s a lesson in many things including reputation management and Internet transparency.
Tuesday night was the speaker’s dinner and orientation. I learned a few things and met a bunch of people I’m eager to hear their talk! Everyone is passionate about what they’re speaking about so I know this will be a great round of speakers.
I attended the event in March and was really pleased with the event. So much so that I aspired to present myself. When new speakers were solicited, I knew I wanted to be a part. Thanks to help from Janet Thaeler, we came up with a winning idea that I’ll be presenting in a few short weeks.
Attending Ignite Salt Lake is free. Be sure to get to the State Room early as the venue fills up quickly.
