We're stoked to be a part of Savannah's first ever Ignite event, which is coming up this Monday evening.
We've been digging the Ignite format for quite some time. If you're not familiar with Ignite, it got started a few years ago by some smart Seattle geeks who were looking for a fun way to network and share ideas. Since then, Ignite has turned into a global phenomenon with chapters in cities across the globe.
Speakers at Ignite events get five minutes and 20 slides to share an idea, a format that keeps presentations moving along and fun. No death by powerpoint!
That will be the format for Savannah's Ignite event, which is also part of Global Ignite Week. Events like Savannah's will be going on all over the world next week.
The Savannah event will feature nine speakers on a range of topics from how rap and country music intersect to Foursquare ethics and the future of food.
We hope you Low Country creatives will join us. Here are the event details:
What: Ignite presented by Social Media Club of Savannah and SEED Eco Lounge, with support by BFG Communications
