Robyn Dippenaar's real leap of faith is not when she faced a big change in my life quitting her job, left her country and came to Vietnam, her biggest leap is when she took a chance to talk at this Pechakucha event. She says "Your leap of faith can be as simple as it is but yet still scary when you decide to do so."

Robyn Burgess is a built heritage surveyor and historian. She has had the great fortune to have had many years working in the field of heritage identification and management, in both public and private sector roles. In New Zealand she has held senior heritage positions at the Department of Conservation and Opus International Consultants, and currently works for Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga as a heritage advisor covering Canterbury and the West Coast. Her favourite roles overseas have been to record at-risk historic buildings for the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England and, in three brief but glorious stints, surveying ancient archaeological sites in Greece.
Robyn is living proof that if you study what really interests you, then chances are you can thrive in a career working in that field too. She studied history, art history and philosophy the University of Canterbury, museum studies at Massey University and, as a mid-career professional, has had the joy of hands-on heritage conservation training in Italy and China.
In this PechaKucha Robyn will enlighten us about a former ‘top secret’ World War Two construction effort in the Selwyn District.

PKN Raglan Vol. 2
Raglan held its second PechaKucha Night just last week, and here's organizer Rodger Gallagher with a report on the night that was: Thursday night’s PechaKucha Night Vol. 2 at the Raglan Old School Arts Centre in Stewart Street hit new heights both literally and metaphorically. Brigid Allan showed and amazing set of images from the Milford Sound area, but these weren’t the standard tourist shots. Instead the photos were taken on mountain climbs she had down in the area. The audience appreciated the variety and high quality of all the presentations. Robyn Gallagher’s talk on interestingness couldn’t help but raise interest as she talked about Flickr’s interestingness algorithm. And of course the homemade kai during the beer break was also appreciated. Rodger plans to have two more PechaKucha Nights later this year, and is already on the lookout for presenters -- do get in touch through the Raglan city page if you'd like to present or if you know someone who would. Below, the list of presenters from Vol. 2, as well as a few photos -- there's more to see in this Flickr photoset. Nelson Lebo III – Thinking like a swale Karma Barnes – Earth circle art. Fine Art, Multi-Media, Textiles and Installation Artist Clare Wimmer – Wood Firing. Abode Pottery, Waitetuna Robyn Gallagher – Interestingness Brigid Allan – My Milford Sound John and Julia – Raglan Ramblers Virginia Gallagher – Raglan 1910.

Thank you all!
PKN Weimar - landed !
Soo, finally it happened! PechaKucha took off in Weimar, and der Laden was fully packed! Thank you all for coming! It was a special night for many reasons - it was a PechaKucha, it was for the first time in Weimar, and it was a Global Night with over hundred cities running PechaKuchas at the same time. For the start we had great fun to hear from the host, Martin Bomba about the open character of the venue that hosted the event: Der Laden gives space for your ideas and activities! Soon after that, the co-funder of PechaKucha Weimar made us all laugh to a series of hilarious GIFs questioning the everyday expectations addressing the academics. To our joy, the audience was incredibly mixed! Next to students as Weimar is a student city we had many rooted activists and also some curious inhabitants. Weimar invited! At the next 20x20 we had the pleasure the to listen to a real Local Heroin, Daniela Schwarz, who is a professional child minder (Tagesmutter). With six children of her own she is running a small kindergarten for 10 children, among them my own daughter, all incorporating the Montessori education philosphy. In a beautiful storyline Mrs Dani unveiled some playful ideas. It takes a lot of courage to step out of ones field and speak in front of 50 young creatives! Special congratulations! The last presentation was a silent one due to the philosophy of silence practiced by Frollein Motte. The Beer Brake was this time a closing one. We didnt make it this time to join the big google hangout wave. Don-t trust technology too much! And see you next time, around November? Remember, it is all up to us! :) Ammalia, Aisha, thank you for the photos!
Der Fruehling ist angebrochen und wie versprochen melden wir uns aus dem Winterschlaf zurück. Die Schisaison war nicht allzu berauschend im Süden Österreichs. Wenig Schnee - dafür viel Zeit zum Nachdenken und Planen. Die Gedanken sind schon ganz im Mai - dem Wonnemonat gelandet. Dort findet die 3. PK-Night Lienz statt und wir suchen erneut erfrischende Beiträge. Wer ist so mutig und präsentiert sein "Ding" hier in der Kleinstadt Lienz. Es können Projekte, Weltanschauungen, Ideen und einfach nur schöne Bilder mit Worten untermalt - präsentiert werden. Wir freuen uns auf Deinen Beitrag. 20 x 20 (Bilder x Sekunden) - die Formel bleibt die Gleiche. Rückschau: Volumen 2 - fand im November 2014 in der Bäckerei Joast statt und war ausverkauft. Die illustere Gruppe amüsierte sich über die unterschiedlichsten Themen: Liebe, Heizkosten, Bauart, Internet & Bildung und Schwarz/Weiß Denken hielt das Publikum in gewohnter Manier geistig auf Trapp. In Volumen 3 erwarten wir erneut innovative Beiträge - Be there in Lienz/Osttirol

Announcing Our Presenters for Volume 7 – September 20, 2018
We are super excited to announce our next line up of speakers for our seventh volume of PechaKucha Night #ldnont. On Thursday, September 20 we will have FIVE super cool presenters. Here is the lineup (in no particular order yet): Megan O'Neil | Empathy on Fire Empathy on Fire is a talk about understanding empathy as a volunteer in the 2017 BC wildfires. Harry Cosgrove | I’d Rather Be Coaching HockeyHockey is a passion in Harry’s life and he has inspired players to enjoy a sport that is as Canadian as maple syrup and back bacon. David Billson | Business is Broken: Change the ScoreAn entrepreneur faces a stark choice in building her business - build the impactful business you want or change the score? Katy Boychuk | Leading with Your Strengths, Passions, and Values to Live Life to the Fullest Bouncing from contract to contract was not Katy’s idea of a long-term career plan. Last year, she took a purposeful pause to be intentional with her next steps. She hired a Life Coach to guide her journey, (re)branded herself, and leveraged her resources to explore a new career path. What started as a career development journey, became so much more as she discovered how to lead by her strengths, passions and values, in every aspect of her life.

After much careful dialogue, as co-organizers of PechaKucha Night #ldnont, we made the strategic decision to not have a fourth talk night in 2018. Frankly, we were rushing to pull together the event for November and it just wouldn't have been of the calibre you've come to expect from these amazing nights of learning and community sharing. So, we're re-grouping and planning now for three fabulous nights in 2019. Stay tuned here and on our social channels (Twitter and Facebook) for all the details. We can't wait to engage with you again soon in 2019! High-fives and fist-bumps! Janic and Andrew
