Your job is to show the audience what it was about your topic that ignited a passion in you.O Be profound. It is rumoured that speakers at TED are told "Say whatever you want, just be profound!" Its good advice for an Ignite talk too, but bear in mind that an Ignite talk is 300 seconds so theres a limit to how profound you can be.O Take a simple idea and explore it. You cant explore a huge idea in 300 seconds, so choose something manageable. Dont use wordy slides. Pictures are good.O Be a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in your city
