The sound of conversation or chit-chat can loosely be translated into Pecha Kucha in japanese.
We all network online but still need to practice our communication and interpersonal skills sometimes. With this idea, architects Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein launched Pecha Kucha nights in 2003 as a meeting place where creative types could share passions and projects with others.
Each of the speakers presents 20 slides in 20 seconds on the topics of their choice. Using visuals keeps it short and hopefully gets the conversation going.
Upcoming Events on October 18 take place in London, and Tokyo.
Makes me think of bringing some local creative minds together!
Today's Financial Times How to Spend It magazine introduced me to Pecha Kucha (no link available at this time unfortunately).
