Thursday night I attended my first Ignite event. Ignite is based on a simple premise: presenters get 5 minutes on stage with a 20-slide presentation that auto-advances every 15 seconds. Thursday’s event had 16 or so speakers on a wide variety of subjects. I definitely recommend attending.
While there were no real estate related topics at Thursday’s event in Seattle, last week there were 65 different Ignite events held all over the world. I was browsing through the worldwide video site and I came across this talk from the Sydney Ignite event: Why journalists lie – and how you can benefit by Inga Ting.
Since picking apart poor journalism is something of a pastime here at Seattle Bubble, I found the talk to be fairly interesting.
Maybe I’ll try to put together a talk of my own for some future Ignite Seattle event. For the title I was thinking I could go with something tame like “Making Sense of Real Estate” or perhaps something a little more colorful like “How to Play the Real Estate Game and Not Get Screwed.” What do you think?
