Ignite Bletchley Park

A session at Over the Air 2011

Friday 30th September, 2011

7:00pm to 10:00pm (GMT)

Even if you can't join us for the full OTA11 event, you should definitely try to make it out to Bletchley Park for Friday evening, as we will be introducing an exciting new element to the programme:

"Ignite is a global event, organized by volunteers, where participants are given five minutes to speak about their ideas and personal or professional passions, accompanied by 20 slides. Each slide is displayed for 15 seconds, and slides are automatically advanced. The Ignite format is similar to Pecha Kucha, which features 20 slides displayed for 20 seconds each. The presentations are meant to "ignite" the audience on a subject, i.e. to generate awareness and to stimulate thought and action on the subjects." Wikipedia

The event-within-an-event is being organised by Ignite Cardiff's very own Claire Scantlebury, and the submission form is still open for speakers to come along and volunteer to give a five minute talk. The rule is - you can't talk about yourself or your job (so no blatant self-promotion is allowed) but if you're passionate about something or want to talk about something cool and innovative then just fill in the form behind the link above and we'll be in touch.
