Not yet scheduled!

We haven't scheduled our next PechaKucha Night yet, but in the meantime you can watch some presentations, look at our map to see if there are any scheduled PKNs in nearby cities, or have a look at the long list of upcoming events, to see if there's one you can attend!



Creating a presentation: UPDATE

Each PechaKucha presentation consists of 20 images shown for 20 seconds each - they will auto-advance as a slideshow, so there is no going back, pausing, or skipping around.

  • Please use PowerPoint - if you don't have it, skip to the next section.

  • Create 20 slides of one (or more) images each

  • Slides can also be text, but text is best kept to a minimum so it doesn't distract from your talk. Try an intro and/or closing slide with your name and contact info (these count toward your 20 slides).

  • After your slides are created and organized, make sure your slideshow is set to auto-advance after 20 seconds - no mouse-click needed. (In PowerPoint, this is under the "transitions" tab. Make sure you click Apply to All so each slide gets the same timing.)

  • TEST your slideshow several times.

  • PRACTICE the presentation if you want what you're saying to line up with certain images.

  • Once the slideshow is set the way you want it, share with us via Dropbox.com or similar file-sharing method.

OR - if the above has you scratching your head, never fear.

  • choose 20 images

  • make sure the file names indicate their order, ie "01 Sheehan.jpg" "02 Sheehan.jpg" etc.

  • Share them with us via a folder on Dropbox (www.dropbox.com) or your favorite file-sharing method.

  • I'll make the PowerPoint (no frills or fanciness, but I'll include your name) and upload the video for you.
