What is PechaKucha?  PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and speakers talk along to the images.

 

Why PechaKucha?  Quite simply, it’s fun.  The audience is treated to short, engaging, crafted talks on a variety of topics and the format creates an interesting challenge for the speakers.  

 

You can see some archived Pecha Kucha talks here.

There are also some health care specific example here.
