Ignite Denver sparks are curated for awesomeness. What’s that mean?


  • If you’re a life coach, we’re happy for you, but this isn’t the venue to advertise it.
  • If you’re a management consultant, good on ya, but this isn’t the venue to talk about that.
  • If you’re in Toastmasters and need a place to practice, sorry you’re probably not a fit.

We love all those things, but that’s not what Ignite Denver is. It’s not open mic night, it’s not public speaking practice, and it’s most definitely NOT a place to pitch your business.

It is telling a story and sharing information.

So that’s what we don’t want, but what do we want? Well:

  • The thing you’re outrageously excited to talk about all the time, anywhere.
    • Why Lacrosse is a true renaissance sport
    • How you learned to drive by watching Knight Rider
    • The importance of voting at all levels
    • What those numbers in the recycle logo mean
  • The thing only you can talk about because it’s uniquely you.
    • Why you only walk on the left side of the street
    • Your in-depth comparison of the NHL management structure and the Empire from Star Wars
    • Why pies are better than cake
    • Why your odds of surviving a bear attack are truly zero.
  • The thing you know backward and forwards and wish more people knew.
    • Why walkable cities are better for everyone
    • How q-tips are made
    • How printing presses work
    • What the 4th industrial revolution will mean for us all
    • Why recycling is so important
  • You get the idea.

Before filling out the form, please watch this video and read these pointers from our friends at Ignite Seattle.

That might all seem like… A LOT. But it’s really not, and once selected, the speaker group gets together twice to work on their sparks together. We do two full run-throughs so that by the time you take the stage, you’re even more badass and ready to rock.
