What is Pecha Kucha?

Pecha Kucha is a form of presentation that originated in Tokyo, Japan in 2003. It was devised as an event for young designers to share their work and network connections. Apparently it gets its name from the Japanese term for the sound of ‘chit-chat’. Its style of course is connected to its name and is based on a fast paced system of presenting 20 slides at 20 seconds each, which means the content has to be tight and is a good way of cutting out any filler and focusing on the essential content. The atmosphere is intended to be very informal and promote discussion afterwards.

Since its creation in 2003 Pecha Kucha has gone global, with Pecha Kucha Nights in over 500 cities around the world. It may have had its beginnings within the world of design and architecture, but now Pecha Kucha Nights embrace speakers of all disciplines.

I have been invited to speak at the next Pecha Kucha Night in Barnsley on Wednesday 28th November. Click here for more details on their website.
