During ASAE11 in August, I had the honor of participating in one of the two Ignite sessions. Preparing for Ignite was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. That said, I highly encourage everyone to do it at least once. It’s amazing how creative you can be when you’re given 5 minutes and 20 slides that auto advance every 15 seconds to make your point.
IMHO, the Ignite sessions were among the best at ASAE. Each speaker brought a passion to their topic that’s rarely seen during a presentation. As someone in the audience pointed out, you rarely heard “umm” or “ah” as we spoke. We all put a lot of time and effort into our presentations and it showed. When you get a free moment, please check them out. In the meantime, here’s my presentation on lessons on association management from the artist currently known as Prince.
