Not your average karaoke

We keep saying that Ignite Sault is about community. One of the great things about community is that everybody supports each other, whether you’re a presenter or participating in an icebreaking activity, if you put yourself out there at Ignite Sault people will cheer you on.

Another key thing about Ignite is that it’s fun. It’s a night to have fun, hear some quick presentations, interact and enjoy.

Ignite Karaoke is one of the fun, interactive activities you can expect at an Ignite Sault event. Introduced in the Soo at Ignite Sault 2, it’s quickly become one of the highlights of any Ignite evening.

It’s not your average karaoke. What happens is, people attending Ignite, who aren’t presenting, can volunteer for Ignite Karaoke (if you put your name in by accident don’t worry! You can just let us know and you don’t have to do it). These brave volunteers are then picked randomly and have to improvise an Ignite talk to random slides they have never seen before. The audience then votes for their favourite, using the “applause meter” app on Gerry’s iPhone (very scientific:)) to decide the winner.

Want to see what it’s all about?  Check out this Ignite Sault 3 Karaoke video:

Special thanks again to our volunteer Ignite Karaoke presenters! It’s not easy to stand up in front of a crowd and improvise a talk, especially to slides you have never seen before! We had fun and hope they had fun as well.

Stay tuned for more videos from Ignite Sault 3!
