‘PechaKucha is a visual storytelling platform that simplifies the artful process of inspiring others.’ Japanese for “chit-chat,” PechaKucha is a style of presenting ideas, knowledge or passion in an easy and memorable way. The format is simple, visual and short: 20 images x 20 seconds.’

IEEC is pleased to be an official ‘Powered by PechaKucha’ event.

What makes for a good PechaKucha presentation?
• Be aware that 20 seconds can feel short for some and long for others — and reading from a piece of paper is not the answer, presenting should feel natural.
• The best presentations use strong visuals, with a minimum of text — in fact, no
text is even better.
• Full framed images (with no margins) are better.
• Visit for further inspiration!

How much time does each speakers get?
• Presentations will always be about 6 mins 40 secs, but we budget 10 minutes per presenter so there is an opportunity for Q&A. 

Do presentations need to be sent in advance?
• No, just bring your presentations on a USB memory stick and load them on to the laptop before your session.
