Ignite Sunshine Coast

Impact Presentations has helped many hundreds of people deliver a presentation that either convinced an audience or told a story that shared their message with the world. But something was missing. We were looking for a platform to help many more speakers deliver a presentation to a live audience as well as giving the opportunity to have their story told to the entire world. That’s why we are excited to be a licensed organizer for Ignite Sunshine Coast.

What is IGNITE?

The first IGNITE® event was held in Seattle, Washinton, the USA in 2006 started by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis. Since then Ignite has become an international phenomenon with over 350 events held around the world. Using the unique 20 x 15 formula this platform allows presenters to deliver a story in a speedy and concise way.

The mission of Ignite is that “everyone speaks”. We believe that everyone has a story (or several stories) in them and should be given the opportunity to share it. We wanted to give presenters an opportunity to speak locally and share globally. For us, at Impact Presentations, we believed that Ignite was the platform for that. More information about Ignite and to view the many presentations delivered around the world is available here…

20 x 15

At this point, you may be wondering what the 20 x 15 presentation format is. To speak at an Ignite event, presenters are to supply organizers with 20 slides that they have designed. Each deck of 20 slides is set to auto advance every 15 seconds. When the last slide has finished displaying they are to have finished their talk. This gives each speaker 5 minutes to deliver their presentation.

Ignite Sunshine Coast

Who can speak at Ignite Talks Sunshine Coast?

The short answer to this is basically anyone. We want to hear stories that inspire us, to open our minds to a new idea or have us take positive action. Everyone in this world has been through an experience, possesses a skill or even just thinks differently. This equips everyone with a story that is unique to them.

Speaking experience is not necessary to speak at an IGNITE SUNSHINE COAST event. We look at each submission received on a case by case basis. The story and unique message that the presenter can offer our audience are what we are looking for. We encourage everyone to take the challenge to share their story and spread their message to the world.
