Educating China's Next Generation of Innovators

@ VOL 27 ON APR 14, 2016

As the first speaker of PKN Shanghai #27, Michelle Sin sets the bar high for the rest of the evening. Her insights into the Chinese education system are known to few, and described accurately by even less. The first seconds looking at her second slide you think it is a computer generated pattern, ... but then you realise it isn't. Learn how education isn't just about quantity, but also about quality.

How Restraint will Fuel Your Creativity

@ VOL 27 ON APR 14, 2016

“Maybe eventually in the one route left, you will find new continent of possibility.”

In How Restraint will Fuel Your Creativity from Pechakucha Night Shanghai Vol.27, seemingly contradictionary, Pierrick Calvez makes the case that restraint can actually give you more freedom. He backs this up with relevant examples from various artists. Our conclusion: Think outside of the box, but putting yourself in a(nother) smaller box!

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, June 27th, 2016.

Unicorn Breeding

@ VOL 27 ON APR 14, 2016

Joanna Palmowksa shares on making the impossible, possible. Unicorns are not just for Silicon Valley, and they're also not a one-time thing. With the right mindset, you can achieve much more of your dreams than most of us believe.

On-Demand Economy

@ VOL 27 ON APR 14, 2016

Zhe Wang shares about the on-demand industry: there are many products people don't want to buy or services they only want to pay for when they really need it. This is called the on-demand economy. You don't want a car, you want transportation. You don't want a beach house ... well, you actually do want a beach house, but you can't afford one, so instead you'll hire one. But you get where this is going.
