We all have at least one. That activity that excites you, the concept that gets you fired you up, the object of your deepest desire. Does it make your heart beat faster? Give you a little rush of excitement? We want to hear about it!

Just like our sister event, Ignite Phoenix, After Hours provides the platform to share these life-shaping experiences, passions, and unique perspectives, we just choose to do it in a more intimate setting, limit the audience to 21+ and open the forum to all subjects – Religion, Politics, Taboos, Sex, Drugs. Whatever your topic is, share it with us.

Requirements

Each selected speaker will speak about your topic for 5 minutes with 20 slides in front of the crowd (no pitches!) as well as arrive a couple of hours before the show for prep.

It’s pretty simple. We go over all the submissions and select 16 people to present at the event. You can see all the talks we’ve received so far right here.

The Deadline

Submissions are currently open and the deadline is TBD. Judging will take place the day following the deadline.

Submit your talk!

Don’t be nervous! The Ignite Phoenix audience is the most supportive audience you’ll ever meet. If something turns you on, they’ll be into it with you. For extra protection, we don’t videotape this show and we give you the option to use an alias.

If you’re still feeling a little unsure, that’s pretty normal. Take a few minutes to read these tips, then submit your idea – it’s painless, we promise!

Note that you must be 21 years old to speak at or attend Ignite Phoenix After Hours.
