You Don’t Have to Sing to Participate in Ignite Karaoke

One of the new events at Ignite Sault 2 was Ignite Karaoke, where ordinary audience members were invited to give an Ignite talk of their own…completely improvised!

Three volunteers took turns improvising an Ignite talk to a set of slides they had never seen before.  Thinking fast on their feet, their talks were all fun and entertaining resulting in many laughs shared.  All volunteers were awarded a prize for participation.  The audience determined the winner (using the applause-o-meter ap on the iPhone.  It was very scientific!) who was awarded a special grand prize donated by Rolling River Soap Company.

Missed the fun?  You can watch it again here:
