About Elevate Daytona

Elevate Daytona Beach was created by The Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Alumni Council to promote innovation and leadership within our community. With a mission to support and identify community leadership, the Alumni Council is proud to have hosted the first ever Elevate event on May 12, 2016 to a sell-out crowd!  

Elevate talks can best be described as fast-paced TED talks.  The format requires presenters to use 20 presentation slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds.   

Attendees can expect to be entertained, learn something new and unique, be motivated and experience some of the most innovate individuals in our community.


Elevate Talk Specifics

Elevate talks are a forum for ideas, not for marketing. It is not that presenters are not allowed to talk about their work or your business, but should do so in such a way that it informs a larger idea.

 

The goal is to get people thinking and talking. For example, great Elevate presentations can:

  • Come up with and explain an innovative way to solve a problem
  • Show people a new or unexpected way to look at something familiar
  • Pull back the curtains on a complex process
  • Show how something isnʼt what it seems
  • Show how something is what it seems but maybe should not be
  • Challenge or debunk a preconceived notion
  • Illuminate a fascinating but hidden bit of culture
  • Give people a challenge they can act upon (without demanding that they do so)
  • Present a new way to consider an opinion
  • Present an old but forgotten way to consider an opinion

 

Every speaker represents her activities and work. Sometimes that is a critical component of a good talk. The idea comes first. The speaker’s organization (or business/job/cause/politics) should be secondary.

 

Elevate Daytona Beach is a place to be creative, vulnerable and have fun. The best talks are the ones fueled by true passion.  To learn more, watch similar talks at www.Ignitetalks.io
