Call for presenters at Ignite Sydney 16

Ignite Sydney is back for 2017, and our first event of the year coincides with Global Ignite Week. During this week, hundreds of Ignite events around the world will be hosted, and we’re excited to join in the fun.

Right now we’re looking for passionate speakers who can deliver a 5-minute presentation, on any topic of your choice. If you’d like to have a go, please enter your proposal on the Submit page.

Presentations can be funny, clever, thought-provoking or even provocative – as long as they’re interesting, and don’t contain a sales-pitch.
