Ignite Liverpool is an evening of lightening fast talks that inspire, amuse and enlighten. It has been taking place quarterly since 2010 and is organised by a group of volunteers who love enabling other people to share ideas and passions.
Their next event is on the 8th May at Leaf Cafe on Bold Street, Liverpool.
Ignite Liverpool has about 10-15 speakers who take to the stage to give a short 5 minute presentation on their chosen subject, yep we really did say presentation - we even insist on it being powerpoint..... but don't let that put you off as the presentation acts mainly as a backdrop to your talk, with the slides changing every 15 seconds as you go through your rehearsed talk.
We all know the typical format for Ignite Liveprool - take 20 slides and talk for 5 minutes about a subject that you are passinate about but now for the brave Ignite Liverpool have started a finale event for each evening where a VOLUNTEER is given an improvisational challenge. The challenge is to take twenty random unseen slides and tell a story throughout.
You can check out the first one presented at last months Ignite below by Alex Nursall, who took the topic of Canada as her Improv subject.
