#ideas11 Ignite #2
So this is my second Ignite presentation I’ve been to in the past week (the other one being Ignite Baltimore 7). Since it’s kind of a firestorm of information, I’ve captured a key takeaway from each presentation. Enjoy! (btw, I will update with YouTube links when they are released)
freak flag-flying (what, why, and how) by Joe Gerstandt
Key Takeaway: Freak flag flying is rooted in self-awareness, it’s about knowing who you are. Do you know who you are? Do you know what you’re here for? Do you know what your gift is? Is there any evidence? If you want to be a part of change, you have to be willing to be different.
Failure Must Be an Option by Jeffrey Cufade
Key Takeaway: So you want to make a change? What the hell are you waiting for? Look at abductive logic, the logic of what could be. If we are not willing to risk anything, aren’t we risking losing everything. “I know I can. I know I must.”
Don’t Judge a Mentor by Her Shoes by KiKi L’Italien
Key Takeaway: Your mentors are all around you. Sometimes it’s the anti-mentors, the people that try to push you down that help push you to go bigger and become really what you can be.
The Meeting Environment of the Future by John Nawn
Key Takeaway: Meetings should tap into all of our senses. Instead of fitting the meeting to the place, fit the place to the meeting.
Make It Happen Today by Ann Oliveri
Key Takeaway: Ask for help and be generous. You can make it happen in 5 steps:
- Exhale. Stop. Watch.
- Expand your intention.
- Explore, be more.
- Express Purpose
- Extend the offer.
The Story of Your Life by Gary Rifkin
Key Takeaway: Storytelling can help lives change. If you have passion for you platform, your audience will take the ride and take action.
