Tampa, Florida – March 31,2014 – Do you have a burning desire that you want to share with the world? Be a Rock Star, at least for five minutes. Deliver a quick fire talk on a topic that ignites your passion!
We are happy to announce Ignite Tampa Bay 2014! Ignite has become a staple in the local community by delivering a high-energy evening which inspires, educates, entertains and sparks new ideas and conversations across cultures and disciplines of the Tampa Bay Community. This is accomplished through fast-paced, bite-sized presentations where community members get on stage and share their personal or professional passion. These talks can be serious, humorous, inspiring and downright rude at times, but they are always entertaining. It’s a great opportunity to meet smart, interesting people and learn something as well.
At Tampa Bay’s Ignite we try to showcase the best of our community and this year we have selected The Cuban Club in Ybor City as the venue for Ignite which will be held on May 22 at 7:00 pm.
Open Call – Ignite speaker submissions are officially open and so let us hear from you. What are YOU Passionate about that you want to share with the community in 5 minutes? IGNITE is like TED Lite. Ignite speakers get 20 slides at 15 seconds each, to tell the world about their greatest passion.
Ignite Tampa Bay is about inspiring community. We have 20 speaker slots and will begin selecting speakers in early March with the final selection on April 11th , and make your submission here. Speaker selections are made multiple times during the open call process so get your submission in early to improve your chances of being selected.
