National Council unveils “Ignite” contest to share your passion at NATCON

December 19, 2014

From the National Council for Behavioral Health…

Can you capture an audience in just five minutes? Can you inspire a crowd with 20 auto-advancing slides? Then, we want you for our new Ignite Talks at the 2015 National Council Conference

Ignite Talks have become an international phenomenon best understood by their tagline, “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” 

In just five minutes, presenters share passionate stories in the most riveting, moving, and memorable way, including through 20 highly visual slides that auto advance every 15 seconds whether you’re ready or not. Tell us what you’re passionate about for a chance to be one of five Ignite presenters featured at Conference ‘15. 

If selected by our judging panel, you will receive three free speech coaching sessions and we will feature you on the National Council and Ignite websites. We look forward to unique submissions, so be creative and check out past Ignite Talks for inspiration. 

To be considered, you must submit a video no longer than two minutes (needn’t be professional quality — any smartphone can do the trick) and a description of your talk by Wednesday, January 21. 

Questions? Contact Ali Siemianowski at or 202.684.7457.
