Over the last couple of months, we have had 17 amazing submissions for Ignite talks at FinCon12. Sadly, though, we don’t have time for everyone to speak. That is where you come in.
How to Vote
The selection of “sparks” (Ignite lingo for a 5 minute talk) is a democratic process. We need you to head to our voting form and vote for your top topics.
To make sure you actually read through the submissions and don’t just vote for your friends, you have to vote on each topic. You have three ways to vote. You can pick not interested, maybe, or OMG I NEED TO SEE THIS.
Based on your votes, we will use a weighted calculation to pick our top speakers and put together a great slate for you for Ignite FinCon.
Our Ignite EventWe have a lot in store to make Ignite a memorable and fun event for everyone.
We are going to get out of the hotel and spend late Friday evening at The Mercury Cafe, a Denver staple for swing and tango dancing that happens to be three blocks from our hotel.
If you are not familiar with Ignite, it is a unique speaking event where a series of speakers has exactly five minutes to share something educational, insightful, and/or entertaining with the audience.
There is a catch though. Each speaker has to have exactly 20 slides set on a 15 second auto-advance.
I have spoken at two Ignite events and have attended a handful more. Each Spark is unique, fun, and I have never had a bad time.
