About Ignite Cardiff
Ignite saw its first event run in Seattle in December 2006, and since then has spread throughout America and Western Europe. Ignite’s ethos is to inspire and enlighten audiences with the help of passionate speakers willing to share their experiences. The focus is on a passion for your subject matter, but it isn’t an opportunity to sell yourself or your business. No talking about why you have the best widgets, or how you’re going to save people money: self-promotion is a “no.”
The Ignite format is simple: 20 slides which automatically transition every 15 seconds. For the mathematicians amongst you, that takes just five minutes. Having only five minutes to get your passion over, inspires a much more concise presentation, with no time for waffling.
We’re proud that the first UK Ignite, was here in Cardiff. It was launched by Neil Cocker and Claire Scantlebury in October 2008. Since then, it’s inspired the launch of Ignite Bristol, London, Liverpool, and Norwich, to name but a few.
