Too fun. Last night’s Toronto Pecha Kucha meet up was a hoot. Speakers used slides, 20 of them, each timed to show for 20 seconds each to present on topics of their passion. The speed was quick, clipped, engaging. 20×20=400 seconds. That’s it.
My table mates said they liked the PK’s because they are like mini-Ted Talks.
Wouldn’t it be nice if all presentations were made that way? Boiled down to the essence, entertaining, engaging. Conversation follows. Simple. Human. Even in schools, what if students had to do their reports using PK’s?
Are you having a face to face meeting during World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15 – 21? Do you want to spark your creativity? Use a Pecha Kucha format for your presentation. Challenge others too. You’ll be amazed at the energy and inspiration you’ll unleash.

FYI I designed a leadership conference that had the CEO and VP’s use PK’s to present their subjects, then coached them to lead a variety of interactive exercises to invite and engage the delegates who flew in from all over the country. Huge success. People are still talking about it. Totally believe in this stuff for meetings- interaction, concise and entertaining information sharing and laughter. Yup. Laughter is good, for a lot of reasons. Want references? Let me know.
