What Would You Tell Your Colleagues in 5 Minutes? Submit a Proposal for IEDC Ignite V: Super Bowl Sunday Edition

If you didn’t get a chance to be a part of Ignite IEDC in 2012 or 2013, don’t miss your chance to join us for the fifth installment of this popular format.  In this hour-long session, attendees will witness a series of five-minute PowerPoint presentations from thought leaders and practitioners who are at the cutting-edge of the economic development profession. A special Super Bowl Party for all 2014 IEDC Leadership Summit attendees will follow.

We’re Looking for Speakers!

Have a great idea for an Ignite presentation? To apply, please send a 250-word proposal and bio to proposals@iedconline.org by Friday, December 6, 2013. Speakers will be announced in early January. 

What is Ignite® IEDC?

It's the lightning round of public speaking with:

  • 8-10 speakers 
  • 5 minutes per speaker on any economic development subject you choose
  • 20 slides per speaker, automatically advanced every 15 seconds... you better keep up! 
  • A packed crowd of economic development colleagues eager for new information and insight. 

Do you have what it takes?  For Ignite video footage from last year's IEDC Leadership Summit, check out IEDC's YouTube page.
