I had the privilege of presenting at an event called Ignite London. This is a trend happening in cities around the world, similar to TED Talks. However, at an Ignite event you have only 5 minutes, and 20 slides that are pre-timed. The idea is to give an inspirational talk, but make it quick.
I took the opportunity to address a question that I hear often, “Why is there homelessness in London, Ontario?” I presented my belief that the variation in statistics around homelessness from country to country demonstrates that homelessness is a policy issue, and that if we had comprehensive enough policies, we could completely eradicate homelessness. Note, my email address is wrong in the presentation and should read firstname.lastname@example.org
