Being an Independent Farmer in Central Texas, Wooden Buildings in Ostrava, and a Teaser Video from PKN Trnava

Presentations Linda Perez was born and raised in San Antonio. Over the course of her life, she has cleaned hominid fossils and taught secondary school in Kenya, done research at Harvard University and conducted a health care survey in the Andes Mountains, helped initiate sustainable agriculture and rural businesses in Zambia and assisted in HIV/AIDS awareness & prevention in Swaziland. Since 1993, she has overseen the development of a herd of Beefmaster cattle on her 300-acre L&M Ranch, 40 minutes south of San Antonio. Her presentation (from PKN San Antonio Vol. 6) focuses on her life as an independent, organic farmer in the heart of Texas. This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Ostrava Vol. 8) contains stories about wooden buildings that were realised in the Czech Republic by Martin Rajnis and his students. The buildings are inspired by traditional dwellings found in many parts of the world, that are friendly to the environment and, for the most part, very cheap. Martin also points out the bureaucratic system that affects Czech building policies. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog comes in the form of a trio of posters for the upcoming PKN that's set to happen on October 26 in Orlando -- although V6 appears on the poster, this is in fact the series' Vol. 7, and you'll find the full list of presenters on the official event page. Video Today we have a great video teaser to share for the upcoming PKN Trnava Vol. 5, which will be part of the Grape Festival, one of the biggest music festivals in Slovakia.   Calendar Today (August 22) you can catch the following two events: PKN Cairns Vol. 5 and PKN Durban Vol. 8. Tomorrow, you have the following three PKNs to choose from: PKN Edinburgh Vol. 19, PKN San Antonio Vol. 7, and PKN Vladimir Vol. 7.

PechaKucha in AlKhobar Provides Food for Thought

Sketchbook Magazine has a recap up on the recent Global Night edition of PechaKucha Night Al-Khobar. The night featured speeches from martial artists, entrepreneurs, and designers -- here's a clip referring to activist Mohamed Ali's presentation on refugee camps in Kenya: Mohamed showed pictures of children writing on tree barks for school, because books were simply unavailable, saying: “We strive to reach our goals, when people in African countries in need strive to live to see the next day. We know from media that African living conditions are harsh, but we wanted to see the truth for ourselves.  PKN Al-Khobar Vol. 2 took place on September 20, 2013 at the ADC Compound Hall.

Another successful edition of PechaKucha at Maastricht School of Management

“PechaKucha teaches us four important skills in management,” said Oliver Olson, director of Global Education, as he opened the fourth annual edition of MSM goes PechaKucha on Friday 17 March. “1. Following rules, 2. Being concise, 3. Public speaking, 4. Improvisation” Its strict format – 20 slides, 20 second per slide – forces you to think carefully about your message and to stay focused. At the same time, it allows you to practice your presentation and public speaking skills, and develop perhaps the most important one, which will help you throughout life in any situation, the skill of improvisation.” Stimulated by these encouraging words, no less than 11 MBA and MM students took the PechaKucha stage at MSM in front of a full audience of staff, students, friends, family members and MSM stakeholders. As always at MSM, their stories came from all over world, from Kenya to Peru, from Greece to Vietnam, from India to Chile and more. The students talked about topics that mattered to them and transformed the way they saw the world and the future, and the common point between all their stories was that although personal, they all had a deeper and universal value and meaning. We heard about what we can learn from observing birds in a city like Lima, how the financial crisis in Greece led to the development of new business ideas, why we should thank our enemies, the power of relationships, a successful financial product made in Kenya, and why education and life-long learning are key to making the world a better place. T The PechaKucha team in Maastricht complimented the students on their excellent choice of topics and slides. The strength of the PechaKucha format lies in the combination of an authentic message and powerful images. The presenters scored high on these points, whilst keep their own presentation and delivery style. Some used humor, others metaphors, some walked up and down the stage, others asked questions to the audience. The dynamic and engaging pace of the presentations lifted everyone’s spirits on this Friday afternoon. The event, perfectly organized by Pilar Gonzalez, ended – how else? – with a brilliant improvisation on random slides by Oliver Olson himself, who took the PechaKucha standards to yet a higher presentation level under huge laughter and applause from the public. All presentations will be online soon, don’t miss them!   By Sueli Brodin
