I was the kickoff presenter for Nashville PechaKucha Night, presented by the Nashville Civic Design Center. It was a fantastic event, there were nine presenters, and they all did a great job. I was asked by the organizers to share “a personal presentation about my work.”
PechaKucha is a unique storytelling format where a presenter shows 20 slides for 20 seconds of commentary each. This format is audience-friendly in that talks can’t ramble, and expectations are set for how long every talk will go. For the presenter, the slides are on autoplay, and they move without you prompting them. The biggest challenge is that 20 seconds is not a lot of time to get your point across.
