Just 5 minutes in length, Ignite sessions are meant to spark an idea or conduct a demo. As these sessions are very short, the presenter(s) must be prepared and the presentation must be structured. Ignite sessions take place during breakout sessions.
Ignite presentations are grouped by common general themes such as finance, fundraising, stewardship, technology or volunteer support. During each Ignite session, a moderator will briefly introduce each presentation, then the presentations are given in rapid succession, one following another. At the end, time is set aside for connecting with individual presenters, but there is no formal question-and-answer portion of the session. More information to come on these sessions and how to prepare.
