If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

We’ll find out again this year at the Hilton London Metropole—on the second day of Strata in London and day before Velocity Europe begins—for one big, combined, rip-roaring Ignite event. Mingle with attendees from both events and watch talks covering both the WPO + Ops and Data ecosystems.

Ignite will be hosted by Nicola Hughes and Duncan Ross.
