This past weekend I attended the Financial Bloggers Conference commonly known as Fincon12. Around 400 personal finance bloggers descended on Denver to discuss, learn, chat and generally have a good time.
On Friday night of Fincon12 there was an Ignite Event. This is where participants are given five minutes to speak about a personal or professional passion. My presentation was titled 20 Things You Didn’t Know About P2P Lending. While I have been told a video of all the actual presentations (there was about 14 of them) will be available online at some point I recorded a screencast video of my presentation this morning so you can see it for yourself.
At an Ignite event there are strict rules. There are only 20 slides, not including the title slide, and each slide is auto advanced every 15 seconds. So every presentation is exactly five minutes long.
[Update: My presentation from the Ignite event is now online – keep in mind this was done in bar at 10:30pm on a Friday night, it was not a typical seminar setting. And it is not G-rated.]
Now, I realize long time readers will know many of the points in my presentation; the target audience here was other finance bloggers most of whom only have a limited knowledge of p2p lending. If you can’t see the video below then you can watch it on YouTube here.
