APMP Ignite: Light Your Presentation on Fire

Each of the last three years on the last day of Bid & Proposal Con, our audience gets to hear from their peers during APMP’s Ignite talks.

Ignite is a speaking style that ask the presenter to use 20 slides, spaced 15 seconds each for a total of a five-minute presentation.  It is fast paced, wild and wonderful.  This year 10 Ignite speakers took the stage in front of more than 900 attendees.

Thursday Morning - 3We think Yasaman Sadaghepour, Marketing Coordinator at Chief said it best after she lit the stage on fire by comparing a job search to dating.  “Doing an Ignite talk meant that I got to stretch my limits; do something I had never done before; something that scared me. It was also a great opportunity to connect with colleagues at APMP on something other than proposals. We all have proposals in common, but Ignite talks allow us to express our passions and views outside of work and connect on a more personal level; like our admiration for Churchill, passion for the Oxford comma or insistent on clear and concise writing. In the end you can’t beat the rush, or the response from the generous and enthusiastic crowd.”
