IGNITE talks are short, fast, and to –the –point.  They get your ideas across in an attention-grabbing way that leaves an impact on your audience.  Not only are they an effective way to get your main points across, the process of developing them is a thoughtful approach that requires clarity and the ability to refine a lot of information into a message.
