What is Ignite?
Fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global—Ignite is all of these and more. It’s a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea—and the guts to get onstage and share it with their hometown crowd. Run by local volunteers who are connected through the global Ignite network, Ignite is a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in each city. And, via streaming and archived videos of local talks, local Ignites share all that knowledge and passion with the world.
20 slides in 5 minutes. The Ignite format is about quick stories in a rigid format. How you use this is up to you – but come and join us for the first Ignite Manchester, as part of Global Ignite Week.
