4 Reasons to Submit a Talk Idea to Ignite Delta County

Submissions are currently open for our first main stage event, Ignite Delta, on Thursday, Jan. 9th at Grand Mesa Arts & Events Center (Tickets).


If want to propose a talk, now is a great time. Submit your talk here. Here are 4 reasons why you should do it:

  1. The audience is rooting for you.  Grand Mesa Arts & Events Center will be filled with curious and supportive people to cheer you on, laugh at your jokes and appreciate the effort you put in.
  2. We’re going to help you.  Along with tips on how to develop your talk, we’ll give your two practice sessions with speaking coaches.
  3. You get to inspire hearts and enlighten minds. Sharing life experiences, something you’re passionate about or want people to understand is a chance to expand someone’s horizon, stir up dreams, and expose the community to new ideas.
  4. You’ll join the Ignite Delta County family. You’ll join a growing community that draws people together under the belief that everyone has something interesting to share and that by sharing our stories we strengthen our community.

If you’re not quite sure what to submit, take a look at Ignite Seattle’s advice that explains the common mistakes people make, how submissions get chosen, and what kinds of topics and ideas are most likely to get accepted.


Submissions close on December 15th. Don’t wait! Go here to see the form and get started.
