Spark Submission is Open for Business!

Remember that time last year, after you went to an Ignite presentation and you were all, “I’m totally going to submit a spark next time!”

Well guess what, buck-o, the time is now.

I get it. Talking in front of a crowd is nerve wracking. What if you trip going on stage? What if your mind goes blank and you freeze at the first slide? What if you’re so nervous that all of your bodily systems give out on you at once and you vomit all over your shirt and wet your pants at the same time?

You after Ignite Denver 16 (except you're not a baby).
You after Ignite Denver 16 (except you’re not a baby).

The good news is that all of these are very unlikely. You may blank out and you may trip coming on stage. The vom/pee thing probably won’t happen even though you’ve stated something similar in a hyperbolic fit of refusal to speak in public.

The even better news is that we’ve developed a set of workshops to face those exact fears and get you so pumped and so prepared for Ignite Denver 16 that after you leave the stage with thunderous applause following you, you’ll think to yourself, “Why didn’t I do that sooner?”

So submit a spark today and begin your path to the stage at The Oriental Theater.

A couple of things to remember:

In order to be eligible, you must be available on the evening of the following dates:

  • Monday, February 10th
  • Monday, February 17th
  • Thursday, February 20th

These are the two run throughs and the event itself.

If you want to come to our remaining two workshops to gain even more confidence on presenting, here’s the scoop:

  • January 20th, 6 pm, Shift Workspaces: Presenting at Ignite Denver
  • February 3rd, 6 pm, Shift Workspaces: Creating a Great Presentation

In these, we’ll give you an overview and pointers to help your presentation kick ass and we’ll also answer any questions you may have. Our goal is to have the process be as transparent as possible so there are no surprises and nothing to be afraid of on the night of Ignite Denver 16.

So what are you waiting for, throw your hat in the ring and get pumped to be part of an awesome Denver event. Submit a spark today (submission closes on January 24th)!
