How to Get Involved [and Speak] at #Ignite #FinCon15!
Here’s a special note from Eric Rosenberg, coordinator of Ignite FinCon:
FinCon is just around the corner, and you know what that means…
…time to get ready for another amazing Ignite FinCon!
For those of you new to FinCon, or who have never made the trek, Ignite is the premier offsite event of FinCon, and it brings people just like you to the stage for five minutes of glory.
Here’s how it works:
First, people submit topics to present at Ignite. Anyone is eligible unless you are a speaker at a single-speaker FinCon session. The time to submit is right now! Please submit your topics by July 31st here: http://ignite.finconexpo.com/submit-your-topic/
Next, we vote. There are a limited number of slots available, and only the best topics survive. If we have more submissions than time slots, we have public voting to choose which topics (and speakers) make it on stage.
After voting ends, the speakers are notified and get ready for their five minute Ignite talk. Each talk has 20 slides on a 15 second auto-advance. Think of it like Ted talks… on speed.
We will be heading to Ignite on Friday night at 8:00pm at the Mint Museum, just a short walk from the hotel, thanks to our sponsor Payoff! Join us for fun talks, free drinks, and great company at the fourth Ignite FinCon!
If you want to learn more about the rules, the event, see past videos, or submit your topic, head to the Ignite FinCon site today.
See you at Ignite,
& Ignite FinCon Guy
