On October 25th, 2012 Ignite Miami invades The Stage in Midtown Miami from 7pm to 10pm. Do you think you could impact someones life or your community if you had 5 minutes on stage? Like the video says: 20 slides. 5 minutes. YOU.
Well here’s your chance. Contrary to it’s name, Ignite Miami didn’t originate in Miami. It actually got it’s start in Seattle by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis at O’Reilly Media back in 2006. When 200+ people showed up to their first event on December 7th, 2006, they knew they had something big on their hands. Fast forward a few years and Ignite has done just that; ignite communities and people alike to come together for a night of drinks, friends, networking and of course, discussions. Since it’s inception nearly 200 Ignites have been held throughout the U.S. and it shows no sign of slowing down. And thanks to Alex de Carvalho and Janie Coffey, Ignite was brought to Miami.
So what exactly is Ignite Miami? As their website says, Ignite is a “Fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global—Ignite is all of these and more. 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. Run by local volunteers who are connected through the global Ignite network, Ignite is a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in each city. And, via streaming and archived videos of local talks, local Ignites share all that knowledge and passion with the world.
So what are the topics covered at Ignite Miami? That’s the beauty of it – it’s almost whatever you want, granted you have the guts to get up in front of everyone. (Official rules and guidelines can be found HERE.) But no sales pitches here! What you will find are discussions of personal hobbies, obsessions, interests and fascinations ranging from mastery and love all the way to saving coral reefs and how to hack your brain!
