I have the honor and pleasure to be speaking at the first-ever Global Ignite Week.
If you’ve never been to an Ignite, you must. Each presenter has 5 minutes and 20 slides to get a point across. Because of the compressed nature of the talks, you never really know what to expect, which is the best part about it, really.
Usually local events, such as the launch of Bay Area Ignite back in December 2009, this is part of Ignites happening all over the world.
There are almost 40 Ignites scheduled from March 1st through the 4th and you’ll be able to watch them streaming online every day.
So far, Global Ignite Week is represented on 4 continents and 10 countries. Our goal is to have participation from all 7 continents (Nairobi is looking good, and we’re working on Antarctica). More on this from Ignite founder, Brady Forrest.
I join others in thanking Bing for stepping up to sponsor, especially as it’s so hard to get sponsorship these days. And I would be remiss without thanking Emily Goligoski and Carmel Hagen for doing the yeoman’s work of staying on board to organize the second Bay Area Ignite. Thank you, ladies!
Oh, and if you’d like to watch me soar (or eat it), the event is sold out, but you can watch live below – March 2nd at Automattic Lounge from 7 to 10 PM! My topic? “The Social Eye.”
