Now that you know a little bit about Ignite Cheyenne, you may be thinking to yourself “wow, that’s cool and I’d like to be a part of it” Great!
We would love to have you present at Ignite Cheyenne and share something interesting and fun with the Ignite Cheyenne crowd. Here’s the way it works:
First, you want to head over to the contact form (or send us an email at ignitecheyenne[at]gmail.com replace [at] with @) and fill in a bit about what you’d like to talk about. No need to write a book, just a title and a short description. We need to have this from ALL interested speakers no later than noon on Monday, September 20, 2010.
Second, We will review all talk topics and make selections. We will try to balance fun topics with the educational talks and we will try to have a diverse range of talks through the night. If your talk is selected, you’ll get an email from us confirming your talk and other important information about the night. This email will have more information, but as a heads-up we will need your completed presentation no later than 5pm on Thursday, September 30, 2010.
Now the fun starts. With our email, you’ll get your very own set of slides that are already timed to advance every 15 seconds. You can fill it out however you like, but remember the Ignite tagline “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” You have free reign to teach us something in 5 minutes. We want you to have fun with it.
When making your slides remember:
- Keep it clean (ish) and respectful
- Make it fun!
- No self promotion
- This is a very informal presentation, no need to dress up- boots, hat and tack are not required.
We want you (and everyone else) to have a great experience at Ignite Cheyenne, be enlightened by others and enjoy the event as much as possible. Possibly most important, we want you to come back again!
