Are you a good storyteller, able to hold a crowd at rapt attention for minutes at a time? Do you have a story you’re bursting at the seams to share?
Well, ye olde yarn-spinner, a MozCon Ignite talk sounds like just the thing for you.
The five-minute talks have become quite a hit since being introduced in 2015, with talks leaving folks with belly aches from laughter or tears from personal heartache — and everything in between.
If you have an enticing story in you just waiting for an outlet, we’ll supply the audience.

One attendee penned a heartfelt account of how Michael’s talk helped him reprioritize his life — it’s well-worth a good read. Make sure you have a tissue handy.
