Have you been to a PechaKucha Night? These lively events feature short, six-minute presentations with precisely 20 slides — each slide displayed for 20 seconds–20×20. It’s been adapted by other groups such as Ignite (who uses a 20×15 format). One of the wonderful things about these events are the energy and fun. The 20×20 cadence requires presenters to be concise and really get to the salient points. And conversely, if a speaker sucks, the suffering only lasts for six minutes.
I’ll be presenting tonight at the first quarterly PechaKucha Night Fullerton. Interested in joining a group of smart, artistic, creative and thoughtful folks? Get all the details.
