Ignite Durham Speaker Proposals

Welcome to our official Ignite Durham presentation proposal site. Ignite Durham is February 9, 2011 at the Carolina Theatre in Durham NC.

The call for proposals is now open and closes on January 21st. After submitting your topic, begin asking for support from your network of family, friends and supporters. Top 10 vote getters speak, plus 3 submitted talks will be selected by the Ignite Durham organizers. Decisions of the organizers are final.

Ignite events were originally conceived as technology variety shows, but they have grown into much more than that. Ignite is about ideas. Ideas can change the world. And it takes less than five minutes to spread one.

Submit your Ignite talk about a topic you are most passionate about in the arts, science, technology, history, business, education, society, life – you name it. Ignite presentations feature live people speaking in front of an audience of hundreds with 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. Your presentation will include a title slide, leaving you with 19 slides of free-form content. Please consider adding a link to a short video pitch of your talk (under 1 minute) so the community of voters can get a better sense of your presentation style and passion.
