PechaKucha Night's present people who share their stories in short talks using 20 PowerPoint slides that each automatically advance every 20 seconds. The presenters have to keep their talk moving along to the slides and every talk is over in six minutes and forty seconds. Topics can be about anything -- some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different making each PechaKucha Night like 'a box of chocolates''. We invite you to come along, order a drink and enjoy an evening of inspiring talks.
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 and has since turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring people worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
This event is FREE, but advance booking is recommended.
