Last month I decided to participate in an Ignite event. I must confess that I had never heard about Ignite until mid-February when a friend sent me a link saying “Ain’t this interesting?” and then just snapped “What if you delivered a talk about Enterprise 2.0?” [one of the topics I'm currently passionate about].
After checking the website I found the concept of Ignite extremely interesting and was particularly excited by the fact that the event taking place at the beginning of March was part of Global Ignite Week, a global movement of Ignite talks all around the world. So I decided to jump onboard the adventure of delivering an “inspiring” 5 minute talk (with slides rotating automatically after every 15 seconds).
My key goal was to deliver a simple talk so that all of those non-familiar with the 2.0 phenomenon could relate to the message I was conveying. And luckily they did, as I found out at the end. If you can spare 5 minutes of your time please check the video and tell me what you think.
And please remember: your work may not be your life but let your life ignite your work!
