Living the Dream: Why I Couldn’t Avoid Starting My Business

@ VOL 4 ON MAY 03, 2018

There are many reasons why starting a business is a horrible idea. You just had a child, your business model isn't sustainable, people don't want to pay for you to help them make better decisions with their finances. Screw rationality. Those are the reasons why Lucas Casarez thought he had no other choice. He discusses why Family, Values, and Love of Possibilities has propelled him to living a life that he loves.

PechaKucha new year event now a tradition at Maastricht School of Management

Following the success of last year’s PechaKucha event to welcome the New Year at MSM, three groups from the MBA31 class once again bravely accepted the challenge to present their dreams, projects and visions to staff, friends, and MSM’s local partners and stakeholders by using the powerful PechaKucha format. Devised by Klein Dytham Architecture in Tokyo in 2003 as a fast-paced presentation format to showcase new ideas, the PechaKucha concept is simple yet effective: each speaker shows 20 slides, each for 20 seconds. PechaKucha events are now happening in 800 cities across the globe and have grown into valued platforms for inspiration, creativity and networking. On Friday 16 January, four beautiful African business-minded women : Ms. Rebecca Freda Namagga (Uganda), Ms. Amina Mahamudu Serwenda (Tanzania), Ms. Oluwabunmi Folowosele and  Ms. Olanike Omobolanle Ojo (both from Nigeria) shared their entrepreneurial ambitions and shared their visions on women empowerment in Africa with great conviction. They were followed by Yosief Iyassu (Eritrea), Emmanuel Balele (Tanzania) and James Bamwete (Uganda) who described the deplorable health and environment effects caused by the use of inefficient traditional charcoal cooking stoves in Africa and showed how the situation could considerably improve by replacing them with energy saving clay-based cooking stoves. Presenting last, Eleftheria Sitara from Greece gave a very personal story of her journey into the MBA program at MSM and how studying with fellow students from 22 different nationalities has brought a new meaning to the word “beauty” for her. Eleftheria said she found it an unforgettable learning experience: “When I first heard about the PechaKucha concept, I thought of a double-edged sword. Based on the power of images – that sometimes may be equal to a thousand words – PechaKucha allows presenters to express themselves concisely but still in a rich and creative way. The greatest challenge though is picking up the appropriate structure and content for your presentation in order to deliver your message to the audience in the most efficient way. My idea was to present a topic regarding ‘beauty’ and the unexpected ways in which I discovered it through my experiences. The reason I selected it was because I wanted to present not only a brief description of my personal attitude towards life, but also because I wanted to express publicly my gratitude for all the precious moments I am currently sharing with my international classmates. Although in the beginning I was thinking that the PechaKucha challenge was far too fresh and uncomfortable for me to engage in, from the moment I entered the room I felt an immediate friendliness. During my presentation I saw people’s nods and smiles, showing that they were eager to listen to what I was saying. That sense of encouragement from the audience to whom you express your inner ideas is a remarkable feeling that can hardly be forgotten. Relying on the inspiring feedback I received from people telling me how much they were touched and surprised by the spirit created through the single means of a presentation, I would definitely recommend to everyone to try the PechaKucha experience even just for once in their lifetime.” Just like last year, the audience enthusiastically reacted to the students’ presentations. The event was followed by a friendly and relaxed network session in the Business Lounge with all participants.

Socktastic Adventures: Fashion in the Business World

"So they say the first part of coping with your addiction is truly acknowledging that you're dependent on substance. I guess it's only fitting that we're in a church this evening, so my name is Chris and I'm addicted to socks." In "Socktastic Adventures: Fashion in the Business World" from PechaKucha Night Bangor, ME Vol. 12, Christopher Winstead presented on a topic near and dear to his feet and sole. As he has spent the last 14 years of his professional career in the business world, Chris quickly learned that the corporate uniform of suits and ties didn’t lend themselves to a high level of creativity. Looking to add a bit of fashion into his wardrobe, Chris started looking at socks. They are both a venue for expression and an ability to add a pop or color to the board room. A huge thank you to Rebecca Krupke of Captured Moments Photography who provided her talents and skills to the images in the presentation.
