Ignite Raleigh 3 Speaker Proposals

Welcome to the official Ignite Raleigh 3 presentation submission site

What are you passionate about… what do you geek out on…. what do you want to share with the world?

Submit your Ignite talk today. Consider adding a link to a short video pitch of your talk (under 1 minute), so that the community can get a better sense of your presentation style.

What is Ignite? It’s a series of speedy presentations, a sort of geek variety show. The speaker format is 20 slides, slides auto-rotated each 15 seconds. If you had only 5 minutes on stage, what would you say? Hack the format. Make it interesting. Perhaps forget the boring bullets. Tell your story visually.

Check out presentation videos from past Ignite Raleigh, Durham and other Ignite shows on YouTube. Ignite events now play in over 100 cities on 5 continents. Ignite Raleigh 2 was the largest Ignite show in the world to date. Be a part of this global creative phenomenon.

Speakers, create your talk about a topic you are passionate about… share a part of your life that isn’t part of the day job. There are no sales pitches allowed. This is about expertise, education, humanities, science, arts, geekdom, entertainment…. the nuance of something.

14 speakers will be selected based on voting and organizing committee consideration. Voting closes on February 9th at 12:01am. Each person has 20 votes for their favorite topics. Cheating will not be tolerated and our system detects voting irregularity and duplication.
