So many presentations are like really really weak broth, with only a hint of actual content floating around in far too much weak sauce. If only we could turn up the heat on that soup and simmer it down to a concentrated jus bursting with flavour and taste. Wouldn’t that be awesome? No filler, just killer! That’s what the Ignite series of talks aims to do: 

Have you ever been to a 60-minute talk and lamented that there was only five minutes of good content?  Imagine if you could hear only that five minutes…

that’s Ignite Wellington!

Come along to the second Ignite Wellington and be inspired, amused, educated and amazed!  We have an array of talented Wellington speakers, who will each speak for five minutes on topics that range from couchsurfing and Ernest Rutherford, to OutdoorKnit, wallpaper and building the dream!

At the heart of Ignite is its fast-paced format.  All presenters must give their talks in just five minutes – using 20 slides that appear on screen for only 15 seconds.

The evening will start with an Ignite Contest, which will help participants unleash their inner creativity.  The last event had teams building the tallest possible structures out of spaghetti and marshmallows

Ignite is happening on Tuesday August 3, at the Paramount Theatre from 6.30pm-10pm. Ignite is free, but you need to register in order to guarantee a seat.
