Last night (Tuesday night) I had the pleasure of attending Ignite. I’ve wanted to attend in the past, but it never worked out. When I was at the April Social Media Breakfast, Ignite was mentioned, and I realized the last wave of tickets would go on sale that day. I set an alarm and stalked my phone, I wasn’t going to miss my chance.
My bestie Emily, also grabbed a ticket, so we were able to go together, and get a drink to chat prior to it starting. We got there right away, and were able to easily get a beer and some food before the massive lines started.
Ignite gives each speaker 5 minutes, 20 slides, and no control. I had no idea what kind of topics would be covered, turns out, every topic under the sun can be covered. I learned something from each and every one.
At various points throughout the evening I wondered if I could apply to present. And I’ve decided at some point I will apply. Maybe not in time for the next Ignite (November 3) but at some point, I think it would be a wonderful experience.
