At the last ProductCamp Toronto we introduced the “5 minute” talk to give more people the opportunity to speak and share their knowledge with others. They were a great success so we’re going to do it again! If you want to share your knowledge, but want a shorter format than the full sessions, then here’s your chance to present.
Enlighten Us, but Make it Quick!
Based on the very popular Ignite series of talks, — where the motto is “Enlighten Us, but Make it Quick! — these are 5 minute time slots for people who want to talk about something they are passionate about and can share with attendees.
The format is simple:
- You have 5 minutes to present your topic
- You don’t have to have slides, but if you do, you get 20 slides maximum that will forward automatically to cover the 5 minute time slot. e.g. 20 slides means 15 seconds per slide, 10 slides means 30 seconds per slide etc.
- The topic should be related to the ProductCamp themes. i.e. related to product development, startups, product management, marketing, etc.
Don’t be shy. 5 minutes flies by quickly!
It’s only 5 minutes of your time, but you can impact a large audience. If you want to present a short talk, or want more information, please contact Amrita Mathur. You can reach her via the ProductCamp email — firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you want to see what people did at the last event, go to “2010 5-minute talks“.
We’re looking forward to your talks!
