Call for Speakers: Ignite UX Michigan

Does the thought of getting up in front of an audience and giving a talk interest you? This is your opportunity! Ignite UX Michigan is looking for speakers.

Ignite UX Michigan is a single evening of 16 talks in the Ignite format: 5 minutes and 20 slides. This format means that the talks will have to be lively and to-the-point—a perfect opportunity to practice your skills if you are new to speaking or to gather your thoughts about a UX-related topic that’s been on your mind. It will be held at Conor O’Neill’s Irish Pub & Restaurant in Ann Arbor on October 24, 2013.

Topics can be anything that fit broadly into user experience, including topics related to information architecture, usability, user research, web analytics, UX strategy, and more. Although speakers are encouraged to have fun, talks should have an underlying serious or thought-provoking message.

To submit a talk, please send the following to ignite at

  • The title of your talk
  • A 140 character description of what your talk is about

The deadline is September 12th. Talks will be selected by a panel of volunteers (and to volunteer, please contact ignite at
