Ignite Great Lakes – July 30

I’m thrilled to say that I’ll be leading my Comics Are Great! talk at the first regional Ignite event, Ignite Great Lakes! O’Reilly Media has selected 13 of the best talks from the past few years, and I was lucky enough to be picked along with the deserving fellow Ignite Ann Arbor alum Erik Hofer.

The format for Ignite talks is pretty simple, yet pretty challenging. You get 5 minutes and 20 slides to inform and delight an audience. Each slide stays up for 15 seconds, then the presentation automatically moves on to the next slide. Challenging, but a lot of fun. I’m just glad I spent all that time as a kid practicing how to talk like Blurr!


You can register for the event here. Show starts at 7 pm Saturday, July 30 at the Filmore in Downtown Detroit. Hope to see you there! Can’t make it to the event? It’ll be streamed live starting at 8:15 pm ET! Check the Ignite Great Lakes site for more info.
