PechaKucha, devised in 2003 and named for the sound of ‘chit chat’ in Japanese, is the worldwide phenomenon held in hundreds of cities worldwide. A rapid fire form of PowerPoint presentation and connection, PechaKucha allows for 20 images at 20 seconds each then onto the next speaker. Now held as a massive celebration and opportunity for young designers and entrepreneurs to meet, network and show their work in public, PechaKucha delivers on all levels, keeping the concept grassroots, passionate and high-speed.
