Ever heard of ‘Ignite‘? In the world of public speaking, an Ignite session holds the motto, “Enlighten us, but make it quick!”
Presentations are meant to “ignite” the audience on a subject, whereby awareness, thought, and action are generated on the subjects presented.
They also follow a fairly strict format…a maximum of 5 minutes, with 20 slides that auto-advance every 15-seconds…yup AUTO advance…so you have to keep up with your slides and make sure you don’t stuff up and lose your place. Even better than that, the entire thing is recorded and uploaded to YouTube.
Why would anyone want to put themselves through this? That is what I am thinking now…as my very first Ignite session at the BOHS is up tomorrow…wish me luck!!
