Ignite London #4 is coming!

We over at Ignite have announced the date and Brand spanking new venue for IgniteLDN4!

It’s very exciting! As part of Global Ignite Week 2011 the fabulous  93 Feet East in Shoreditch will be our venue sponsor for Ignite London 4 on Tuesday 8th February at 7pm.

I love being a part of the Ignite London committee, each event is so vibrant and exciting.  All the speakers are so passionate about their topics, and I always learn something new.    IgniteLDN always gets me thinking about what I would want to say if I had 5minutes. So I reviewed my post about the first ignite London, and I quote “Its kind of rubbish that I don’t actually think I have anything interesting to say. So Ignite, was awesome and a discovered lots of new and very definitely interesting things, but it also pointed out that I have a distinct lack of eclectic interests at the moment. Phooey. Must try harder Claire, must try harder.”

I still feel exactly the same. which is a shame. There are so many things that I am passionate about, but nothing I feel I would be able to enthuse about coherently for 5 minutes.  Perhaps this year will see me discover an eclectic interest which I will be able to jabber on about properly, without looking confused and urming, which is my typical sentence structure.

I am really looking forward to debating about which speakers should make the final selection. We select talks based on whether the topic is interesting, inventive, creative and unique. We also try to select a wide range of topics, so that there isn’t too much overlap in terms of content and subjects that have been covered at previous Ignite London events.  I currently really want a talk be submitted about cake.

Here are some of my favourite previous Ignite London Talks….
