Pecha Kucha

Are you really tired of boring engineers and their presentations at conferences - - blah, blah, blah?  Or maybe you are in the public sector and you have to listen to engineers (probably the same ones from the conferences) and their "explain the world" presentations for 35 minutes over four days.

Add some innovation and creativity to the process - - engineers talking about innovation and creativity utilizing a innovative and creative process.  Try Pecha Kucha.  Developed in Japan by architects and designers to share ideas.  Literally translated as "chit chat" - - you have 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide with automatic advance.  So, you have 6 minutes and 40 seconds maximum to do your thing.  The time constraint focuses greater attention and concentration on exactly what your thing is.  You end up with more meaningful and purposeful messaging and far less blah, blah, blah.

Every worldly problem and solution should be explainable in a little over 6 minutes - - over the years engineering has drifted to far into blah, blah, blah territory and away from Pecha Kucha.  Start working on explaining the world in under 7 minutes.
