Still on the fence about submitting a talk idea to Ignite? We asked a three-time speaker and stand-up comedian to tell us what she loves about speaking at Ignite, and here’s what she has to say…
Best Audience You’ll Ever HaveIgnite has the most amazing audiences and makes you feel like a complete rockstar. As a stand-up comedian, I’ve seen my share of audiences—from good to bad to actively hostile—but nothing like Ignite. From the moment you take the stage to the moment you drop the mic (away from your face in a slow and respectful manner), they’re on your side, rooting for you to succeed. They genuinely want to hear what you have to say, which makes a great environment for sharing your message, especially if it’s for the first time.Whether you’re a seasoned public speaker or just dipping your toe in the water, you’ll love talking to the fun, supportive people in the Ignite community.
Plus, with such a short talk and all the resources provided by the Ignite San Diego team—from trainings to guidelines to dedicated coaches—you’re almost guaranteed success.
I’d recommend Ignite to literally anyone.
So, there you have it. If you’re literally anyone, Ignite is for you!
Submissions are due Wednesday, March 15 at midnight. Remember, you don’t need your talk fully formed in order to submit. You just need an idea. If you get selected, we’ll help you make it shine!
