What exactly is IGNITE?

Ignite is the name of an event where participants speak about their ideas and personal or professional passions. The presentations are designed to "ignite" the audience on a subject, whereby awareness, thought, and action are generated on the subjects presented. Each speaker is allocated five minutes of presentation time and is accompanied by 20 presentation slides. During presentations, each slide is displayed for 15 seconds and then automatically advanced.
