The next PechaKucha London is booked in and you’re invited. 

We’ve teamed up with Waltham Forest to deliver this special PechaKucha at their One Hoe Street headquarters. As you may know, Waltham Forest is the first ever London Borough of Culture! 

The theme for this event will be ‘Place’. How do you find your place? How do you encourage people to come together? How do you build community? What is a ‘place’ even? 

We’re hoping this event will help the Borough in their mission highlight the character, diversity and cultures of the borough, the things we have in common and the things that make us different, in a year-long celebration of the real cultures of London by the people who live here. See what else is on here..


Haven’t been to a PechaKucha yet? What is PechaKucha?

In short, it really is about getting creative people together over a drink for a fun and casual gathering to share ideas, stories, thoughts, holiday snaps, anything really all in the PechaKucha 20x20 format.

Sound like a million other speaking events you have been to? Well, what makes a PechaKucha Night different is the simple quick-fire presentation style we use - each presenter gets 20 slides that are 20 seconds each; meaning it is both easy to produce for the presenter, easy to digest for the audience and most importantly it saves everyone from boredom and no one’s PechaKucha talk can drag on for too long!

Stay tuned for more information on speakers!

Design, design, design, design, design, design, design

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

In this PechaKucha called 'Design, design, design, design, design, design, design' Lucy Pickford takes us on her professional journey, which, when looking backward is easy to see she was always destined to be a designer. 

Lucy's love of design shines through loud and clear in her perfectly curated 20 images.

Lucy was the final speaker at London - Vol. 20 - PKNLDN 20 - WeWork and left the crowd feeling inspired to look around at their world and be in awe of the amazing design feats of the everyday.

Pursuing a Radically Transparent Company Culture

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

In 'Pursuing a Radically Transparent Company Culture', Nikolay Piriankov, speaks passionately and with clear articulation about how he has adopted a radical approach to building up his bespoke jewellery business.

We are sure that after you listen to Nikolay's PechaKucha you will wish that all companies around the world adopted the same approach to company culture as Nikolay does. Bring on the transparency!!!

Reuse Architecture!

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

in 'Reuse Architecture!', Sara Fontana, uses her 20 images to convince the audience at London - Vol. 20 - PKNLDN 20 - WeWork to reconsider their approach to recycling and reuse. Sara passionately conveys an emerging theory that there is actually sufficient buildings already constructed in the world, and perhaps we can actually 'stop building' (what??!!) and just use what has already been built. 

Not convinced? Well then we suggest you click play and listen to Sara explain it in her own clear words.

More than Profit

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

Louise Holstein gave this ardent PechaKucha at London - Vol. 20 - PKNLDN 20 - WeWork and definitely garnered herself a new legion of admirers impressed with the wonderful work she is doing connecting strangers together over food around a table.

Louise set up Mike's Table 3 years ago. Mike's Table puts on evenings that come in pairs, the first is for paying guests which funds the second evening whereby guests are invited to enjoy exactly the same restaurant experience but for free. These guests are referred through charities and organisations supporting those in recovery from homelessness, illness or addiction, refugees, those on low income and the socially isolated. 

Professional chefs are involved in both evenings and devise the menus on the night using food that would otherwise go to waste.

I Can Do That (and So Can You!)

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

In 'I Can Do That (and so can you!)', Anya Marco Harris, uses her 400 second PechaKucha for great impact. Anya draws on tales from her own life experience to convince the audience that if you have a dream idea floating around in your mind, stop in floating around in the abyss and make it a reality.

As Anya eloquently puts it, if she can achieve being a coffee queen, burlesque dancer, blogger, obtain a MA in cultural cosmology specialising in archeoastronomy and discover how the Neolithic chose to place the stones in Avebury Stone Circle (and that is just her life to date) - then so can YOU!

From Human Remains to Human Resonance

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

In 'From human remains to human resonance', a PechaKucha given by Scott McArthur at London - Vol. 20 - PKNLDN 20 - WeWork, Scott takes the audience on the journey of his life in a PechaKucha that definitely comes from the heart.

Scott explores concepts of job satisfaction and how we identify our own success and abilities.

The main takeaway for the London PechaKucha team was the idea of continual learning. Scott's talk is such a good reminder for us all to keep that concept front of mind!

Hiring is Broken Like Dating

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

In this Pechakucha given by Michelle Levesley at London - Vol. 20 - PKNLDN 20 - WeWork, Michelle put forwards a very convincing argument for why the process of hiring staff is broken just like dating is. Her argument puts forward a case for why hiring is broken for both employees and employers.

Using tales from her personal life Michelle got the lucky listeners in the Vol. 20 audience rethinking their approach to work-life and most importantly to how their attributes are portrayed in a modern world.

Fix Your Gut, Heal Your Life

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

Karen Mannion gave this very funny, honest, and frank PechaKucha talk at London - Vol. 20 - PKNLDN 20 - WeWork.

From the outset she had the crowd in hysterics taking a deep dive into a topic that effects all of us on a daily basis - GUT HEALTH!

Karen's health oriented talk was not only thought provoking but also had a great sense of fun injected into it!
Karen gave the audience (to use an old saying) a lot of "food for thought", the most memorable being a rating system for poo!
