When & Where
Pecha Kucha Sheffield
...a business social that's more a night out...
...it'll get your heart skipping and your mind racing!
Pecha Kucha, meaning ‘chit chat’ in Japanese, is a global, viral phenomenon running in over 800 cities across the world. Sheffield became the 300th PK City on the Planet in April 2010 and has run 16 events at 14 different venues to date.
The evening is based around the 20x20 format, which was first started in Japan in 2003 by the architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham. Each presenter uses 20 slides, set to auto advance every 20 seconds to present their subject or showcase their work.
