The program will facility a series of speakers (12-13) who will present case studies of their work, explaining both successes and failures and corrective strategies. A lead host will guide the Powered by PechaKucha 20 Images x 20 Seconds, a simple presentation format where presenters show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically as the presenter talks. A host will provide background information, introduce speakers, manage presentation lengths and lead wrap-up Question and Answer session. Presentations will be followed by a networking opportunity.
“Powered by PechaKucha” events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format. Find out more at PechaKucha.org.
