Last night at Ignite Dallas, 16 artists, technologists, thinkers, and personalities took the stage to answer this challenge.
They describe their event this way, "Ignite is fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global. It’s a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea—and the guts to get onstage and share it with their hometown crowd. Presentations are a mix of serious vs. fun presentations, and are often about geeky activities…"
Curious onlookers gathered at the Granada Theater to hear a random presentation of ideas and philosophies from seasoned professionals to virgin speakers.
Here are a few nuggets of wisdom I gleaned from tonight's event:
From Redheads to Rowing, Prison Entrepreneurship to the Digital Decade, Why you should own a dog to Frida Kahlo; the topics were varied, funny, moving, interesting and most of all... thought provoking.
Ignite Dallas 4 will be back at the Granada sometime this Summer. I highly encourage you to attend. You might even consider presenting: 5 minutes. 20 slides. What do you have to say?
