Event description

Description

Building on the success of our regular meet-ups, the London International Development Network is delighted to launch a new event.

Tell me more...
The evening will revolve around a bunch of pecha kucha presentations. "Pecha-what?” I hear you cry! These are short presentations of 20 slides lasting exactly 20 seconds each (yes, that’s 400 seconds in total for the mathematically-observant amongst you). The speakers will be talking about their successes, their dreams and their frustrations in international development. If you’ve got something you’re passionate about that you would like to share with the world at our next event, let us know!

At the moment the event has the tentative name of 400 seconds. We may well try to come up with a superior alternative on the night!

The speakers are...
  • Elsie Bryant (The Rules) on breaking our growth addiction
  • Helen Dempster (ODI) on public attitudes to development and migration
  • Chris Man (FieldWorks) on giving a voice to local NGOs
  • Miski Abdi (Save the Children) on making the leap from graduation to first job
  • Soha Sudtharalingam (PwC) on building infrastructure in difficult contexts


What do I need to do?
The event is at 18.00 so you can come straight from work. The talks will start at 18.30 so please aim to arrive in good time to not interrupt the speakers. There’s plenty of time on either side of the presentations to mix and mingle (and to congratulate the presenters on their impeccable timing skills).

It's BYOB (without a corkage charge!) so come prepared with your beverage of choice. If we get enough people we might order pizza.

The venue
55 East is a vibrant community and enterprise Hub situated in the heart of Walworth, South London. It's a place for innovation, ideas and creation.


P.S. Thanks to Wine and Wotsits for inspiration!
