  3. 3. Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein, two Tokyo-based architects who have turned PowerPoint, into both art form and competitive sport. The duo — Dytham is British, Klein Italian — invented pecha-kucha four years ago to help revive a struggling performance space they owned. http://www.wired.com/techbiz/media/magazine/15-09/st_pechakucha Origin: How it all began?
  4. 4. What it is? 20 slides x 20 seconds = 6 minutes 40 seconds = Pecha Kucha So how much can you say in 400 seconds? Not much, so plan. practice. perfect
  5. 5. Getting Started Choose a topic for which you have great passion. "Think passion not portfolio“ Use note cards and paper clips to capture and organize ideas. Remember: "it's about removing, not adding, content" in this phase. "Just because your slides are in sequence, it doesn't mean they have to be linear.” Slide design tips Use large images Use as little text as possible "The slide should be an addition to, not a summary of, your ideas and concepts.” "No more than four images per slide.” Have a consistent look across the slides. Practicing "Pecha Kucha isn't the same as any regular speech... it's closer on the side of performance.” Practice against a timed version. Practice standing up. Look at various points in the room, when talking. Add in silence, remove "filler" noises. Remember: your slides can do a lot of your talking for you. At the Event Get comfortable with the mic. Try not to drink before you talk. Volunteer to go early. Remember: The crowd is on your side. Go slow and steady (e.g., pauses are OK before the next slide if you're done with current point). Make eye contact with audience. Felix Jung's Pecha Kucha Tips http://www.presentationzen.com/presentationzen/2009/06/felix-jungs-pecha-kucha-presentation-tips.html
  6. 6. Five Presentation Tips by Olivia Mitchell 1. Have a theme: If you’re an artist presenting think of yourself as the curator of your slides – explain the ideas that bind them together or show how your ideas developed from one piece to the next. 2. Plan your outline before the slides: Plan your rough outline first focused on your theme Storyboard the slides to fit with the outline Plan and carefully time what you’ll say for each slide. 4. It’s better to finish earlier than later: Many presenters overrun the 20 seconds for each slide. That meant they were still talking about a slide after it had left the screen. So prepare your narrative so that you’re a little bit short of 20 seconds rather than a bit over. 3. Spend more than 20 seconds on a point: There never is enough time to fully develop a point. By contrast, sometimes develop a point over two to threes slides. The set of slides would show different perspectives of the same thing. 5. Rehearse: It’s a dance with a partner who you have no control over. You need to have your side of the choreography – the narrative – down pat.
