For the last two years, the producers of the conference (David and Anne-Marie) have allowed potential Speakers to submit their ideas for topics they'd like to speak on. The result is that there was an influx of new speakers into the conference. Last year, we got to hear presentations from a variety of innovative people who are not necessarily professional trainers, but who are working hard every day in the trenches of print and publishing. These folks have come up with interesting and unique solutions to challenging publishing problems.
Although I wasn't chosen as a speaker last year, I filled out the form again this year and crossed my fingers, hoping to be chosen. Well good news: after four years of doing Ignite presentations, I was chosen to be a speaker on the Big Stage! I'll be doing a 20 minute session on PDF commenting. I'll also have a session or two at the Meet the Speaker table.
