Here's how it works
Passionate speakers, random topics and a great audience... become a part of Ignite
Choose your subject
Ignite is all about sharing personal and professional passions. Sales pitches are a no no, but anything else goes…
Talk through 20 slides
After plucking up the courage and finally choosing a topic, our speakers are given 20 blank slides to prepare their 5 minute talk.
15 Seconds per slide
On the night, between 8-12 speakers take to the stage. With their presentations complete, each slide auto rotates every 15 seconds.
Inspire an audience
From hilarious stories to thought provoking facts, no two Ignite talks are ever the same…. so what could you talk about?
Our Next Event:

Noreen is – amongst other things – director of Co-production Wales, an organisation set up to make co-production “the way things are done” in Wales. She is working on changing The System via its public services. The ultimate aim? Social justice and truly participative democracy. (Nothing less.) She thinks several things: 1. unfortunately the term co-production is not a very friendly word, BUT the thing itself is the best thing since sliced bread; 2. everyone should hear about it and have a chance to find out what it means, and 3. telling people about it is fun.
I am a stand up comedian and writer who has appeared on Itvs Show Me the Funny, where he performed in front of millions in the Hammersmith Apollo.
Pointlessly poetic small town taff now living in the big city. Graphic designer and illustrator by day, avid doodler and crap dancer by night. Born-again triathlete on weekends.
My name’s Cath and I’m a choir addict.
When I’m not indulging my harmony habit, I’m a volunteer Ambassador for Ty Hafan. I also enjoy writing, going to musicals and being flung about on rollercoasters – the higher, faster and loopier the better. I’m a bit of a geek on the sly, am prone to baking outbursts, would live on Main Street in Magic Kingdom if it was a viable residential option, and firmly believe there’s nothing that can’t be made better with a nice cup of tea – the normal stuff, mind, none of that fruity, minty, herby nonsense.
Happily married to a Kev.
I’m Tom, co-founder and creative director of Bluegg, a digital and creative design agency in Cardiff Bay. I started Bluegg in 2002 with Mike straight out of uni and now head a team of seven.
Outside of work I love a bit of cooking (and eating) and spending time with my wife Kelly and son Joe. I don’t eat anything that lives in the sea.
As a musician, Ed’s toured Europe and the U.K. As a commercial photographer he’s worked for clients in the areas of architecture, interior design, clothing/fashion, and outdoor/adventure lifestyle. He lives in Bristol (UK) where he coaches and runs online courses for artists and people finding their creative work for the first time. He writes songs, teaches drums, plays keys and guitar, and makes photographs. He loves cycling, browsing second-hand bookshops, cashew nuts and exploring fresh territory.
