IGNITE events are happening in over 100 cities worldwide organized by volunteers. Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions using a specific format. The Ignite event holds the motto: “ Enlighten us, but make it quick!” Anyone can throw an Ignite event. The presentations are meant to “ ignite” the audience on a subject whereby awareness, thought, and action are generated on the subjects presented. At an Ignite event, each speaker has a time limit of five minutes, and must use 20 slides with each slide advancing automatically after 15 seconds. This forces speakers to maintain a rapid pace. At a just-comprehensible clip of 160 words a minute, Ignite speakers can utter about 40 words per slide, making a total of 800 words for the complete talk.
