A few days ago I mentioned that TEDxLincoln is accepting applications to speak at its November event. It's not the only event in town, however. Ignite Lincoln is also accepting speaker applications. The Ignite Lincoln event is on August 29.
Ignite Lincoln uses a unique format for its presentations. Speakers are allotted exactly five minutes and twenty slides, each lasting fifteen seconds. It's a fun format that keeps things moving and is suitable for a wide variety of topics.
Ignite Lincoln is also accepting applications from local nonprofits which will have a chance to win $5,000 at the event. Unfortunately the timeline is tight; nonprofits only have until June 28 to get their applications in.
