Calling Birmingham’s most passionate, eccentric, weird, and awesome people!

First things first – we missed you all! While our longish break since the last Ignite Birmingham event was a nice chance to recuperate, it turns out that we are way too excited to stay away. We’re most passionate about helping Birminghamians share their passions with the community, so it’s time to get at it again!

Ignite Birmingham in a Nutshell

Ignite Birmingham is an information exchange that fosters and inspires the Birmingham community and beyond to share, experience, and enjoy different topics. There are presentations of all sorts—creative, cerebral, motivational, technical, philosophical, and more—but they all have one thing in common: passion. When you walk away from an Ignite event, you’re sure to be exhilarated, enlightened, moved, and inspired to look at the world in a whole new light.

The Presentations

Ignite Birmingham presenters aren’t professional speakers; they’re everyday people who just want to share their story. Each presenter gets 20 slides and 5 minutes—not a second more. They need to get to the point quickly, and make it exciting and engaging for all who are watching. We welcome topics about anything that people are passionate about. It’s a wide criteria, but that’s the point!

We need you!
That’s right, Birmingham, we need your passion and ideas to make our next event the best one yet. As we gear up for Ignite Birmingham #10, nothing is more important than you. We want to know what ignites the fire in your life! Is it a job, a favorite pastime, a collection, a hobby, or a pivotal experience that has changed you? There’s no right or wrong topic…in fact, sometimes the least expected is exactly what we’re looking for! Stay tuned for more information on venue/dates and talk submission dates. And If you want to help in any way please go to the “I want to help” tab and fill out the form.

Tentative dates

We are shooting for December 3rd or 10th. Which will depend on the venue. If you have a venue you would like to be considered for this event or another one let us know at henry<dot>mcbride<at>gmail<dot>com
