What is PechaKucha?

PechaKucha (Petch-aa Koo-chaa) is a storytelling format where a presenter shows 20 slides for 20 seconds each. Slides are set up to automatically advance after 20 seconds. In other words, you have 400 seconds to tell your story, with visuals guiding the way. PechaKucha means "chit chat" in Japanese. 

PechaKucha is the ideal tool to share passions and drop some knowledge and is the latest addition to the presentation options available at Sigma events. Learn more about the PechaKucha presentation format at
