Among the many interesting things you heard last night at Ignite Phoenix 10, one of my favorites (Iâ€™m biased) was that Ignite Phoenix After Hours #2 is creeping closer. Yes, in case you hadnâ€™t heard, weâ€™re gettinâ€™ crazy again, and itâ€™s happening in Scottsdale, July 29, 2011.
If the world does not end tonight, you should submit an amazing presentation idea for IPAH #2. You have until Friday, July 1, to submit your presentation. If you miss the deadline, youâ€™re outta luck. Youâ€™ll have to wait until IPAH #3. But why wait? After all, the world might end after Friday, July 29th, and as you float through limbo, youâ€™ll always be sad you didnâ€™t get a chance to present at an After Hours event.
Submissions are over on the SPEAK page. Thereâ€™s a possibility that at After Hours #2, you could find out if youâ€™re a pit bull or an antelope. You could learn a bit about Satan. <Wince. Jesus, if you are coming back soon, donâ€™t fault us for that one!!!> OR you might learn how to ruin a relationship in four days. (I imagine itâ€™s easier than you think.)
So there are a few of the submissions weâ€™ve received so far. Where do you fit into all this? Do you have a topic you would never share with your coworkers? What about an obsession youâ€™d never share with your mother? Or you might just have an unconventional opinion that conventionalists wouldnâ€™t want to hear. PERFECT! Get that presentation together and submit. And remember: we do allow you to use a pseudonym, so youâ€™re out of excuses.
If you have someone in the Valley community youâ€™d like to hear from, tell them about IPAH. If thereâ€™s an interesting organization in the Valley, tell them about IPAH. If you have a wacky friend who spouts off about politics, ninjas, or delivery pizza, tell him about IPAH! And donâ€™t forget: submissions close July 1, 2011.
