PK TALKS – 2013

SMACC2013 involved a pre-conference competition for the best ‘pecha kucha‘ talk.

If you’ve not heard of the concept of a pecha kucha (Japanese for ‘chit chat’) or PK talk, the idea is to avoid the usual ‘death by bulletpoint’ long turgid presentation.

Championed by those in the creative industry, using 20 slides, each of (approx.) 20 seconds to get your idea across

So the whole talk lasts 20×20 = 400 seconds (6 mins 40 secs).

It’s a great format and one I would commend to anyone giving a talk – short, sharp, to the point. Use interesting images to highlight and tell a story.
