In July of 2008 I presented at the first Ignite NYC event. The Ignite format is demanding for a speaker: 20 slides which auto-advance after 15 seconds for a total of 5 minutes. It also takes place in a bar, so the environment can be a bit raucous. Someone told me afterwards “if you can do that, you can perform in the Superbowl half-time show.”
This presentation includes both the actual slides and the bullet point speaking script I memorized.
