NEXT EVENT VOL 21

Enjoy a range of lightining presentations in the inimitable PechaKucha style! 

PechaKucha (or chitchat in Japanese) is a creative style of presenting that was started by two architects in Tokyo in 2003 as way for young creatives to show their work and network. Since then the concept has grown and PechaKucha talks now run in over 1100 cities around the world bringing together people from all creative backgrounds.

PechaKucha Cambridge has featured a wide range of speakers from many different disciplines including science, art, design, photography, fashion, architecture, mental health, sport and more.

Charlotte Steggall

Higher Education Champion, Take Your Place in Cambridge

When Charlotte Steggall talks to young people about the schools programme Take Your Place, helping young people with little or no experience of university explore the world of higher education, the topic that always comes up is money. The barriers that stop people talking about money, the stigmas and judgements, are things that Charlotte is helping to get rid of. Encouraging young people to be open about money helps them to be more confident about making financial decisions and explore their options.

In this presentation she shares the lessons learned from her struggle to unlock her son’s potential and explores the enabling role that parents can play in getting the best out of children who are seen as ‘different’ or ‘difficult’.
