A World of Faces

@ VOL 5 ON AUG 16, 2018

In his talk, Kent Tompkins shares captivating candid portraits of the various people he encountered during his world travels. Not only did Kent photograph these individuals, he bonded with them to dive deeper into the inner workings of their culture and lives. He has specially selected photographs during his encounters with Native Americans, Egyptians, and Indians, all of which who have unique stories to share. This presentation makes one reminiscent of famous photographer Alfred Eisenstaed's quote, “It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter.” 


Stockholm Design Lab

We kick off this week's look at online presentations with a candid look at some of the iconic work of Stockholm Design Lab, as told by the studio's Björn Kusoffsky and Thomas Eriksson. The presentation is originally from last month's Tokyo Design Week edition of PechaKucha Night in Tokyo, with a bit of Swedish Style love thrown in for good measure.

PKN Chattanooga Vol. 4

Last week saw Chattanooga's fourth PechaKucha Night, and organizer Matt Brown sends in this report. November 6 marked a special day for PKN Chattanooga as it was not only our 4th event, but also a 1 year anniversary of sorts. And the stars aligned. The turn out was great, the food was great and the presentations were amazing. We were pulled into the world of glass sculpture by Kerrick Johnson who described not only the intricacies of working molten glass, but also manipulating the optics of the final piece. We were challenged by painter Jessica Martin to consider the enormous impact we have on the world we all share. We were asked by Chef Rick Wright to consider the health impact of advertising by multibillion dollar companies, the ubiquity of fast food and the lack of access to fresh healthy food by millions. We were shown by architect Brandon Pace that even small difficult building projects treated with careful attention can be as successful as large museum and library projects. And to round out the evening, we were treated with a look into the underground culture of women’s roller derby by the newly formed Chattanooga Roller Girls. This was just a sampling from the event. Each presenter brought personality and a clear passion for what they do. And as with our last event, photographer Chloe Wright captured a candid look at the small interactions that occur when a hundred or so creative spirited personalities come together. Now… on to Volume 5! Below, a few more photos from PKN Chattanooga Vol. 4.

MSM students celebrate the New Year with PechaKucha presentations

MBA30 students inspire audience with PechaKucha presentations at New Year’s eventThis year, Maastricht School of Management decided to do something different to celebrate the New Year. Instead of hosting a traditional event with external keynote speakers, the school literally put its own students in the spotlight by giving them the floor and challenging them to present themselves in a creative and inspiring way to staff, friends and local partners and stakeholders.Teaming up with the organizers of PechaKucha Maastricht, MsM took up thePechaKucha concept as a unique communication tool to help its students share their personal experiences, dreams and ideas with the local community.PechaKucha was devised by Klein Dytham Architecture in Tokyo in 2003 as a fast-paced presentation format to showcase new ideas. The concept is simple yet effective: each speaker shows 20 slides, each for 20 seconds. PechaKucha events are now happening in over 700 cities across the globe and have grown into valued platforms for inspiration and networking.During a preparatory session in early December 2013, two team members of PechaKucha Maastricht, Jean-Paul Toonen and Sueli Brodin, visited MsM to introduce the PechaKucha concept to the MBA students. Jean-Paul found the magical words to motivate them: “See this as your launching platform to the world.” The students’ reaction to the 20x20 presentation format was overwhelmingly enthusiastic, especially after they were given a chance to test their own creative skills by improvising a presentation on random slides.   It was a full audience of students, staff, partners in MsM’s mentorship program, members of the local business community and interested stakeholders who on 17 January came together to celebrate the New Year with a special and much anticipated PechaKucha session.MsM Dean Director Wim Naudé kicked off the afternoon with a warm word of welcome and an informative overview of MsM’s activities and ambitions for the New Year. Ellen Narinx, MsM Career Center Senior Officer and coordinator of the Mentorship Program, then shortly explained the PechaKucha concept to the audience before inviting three students to take the stage.     The students, Vijay Wakchaure from India, Subhi Najjar from Syria and Abdul Iddrisu from Ghana, spoke in turn and conquered the audience with their authentic and vivid personal stories. Vijay gave a candid and colorful comparison between his life in India and his experience in the Netherlands, stressing on the new and unexpected, at times even challenging things he had learned during his first three months at MsM. “I decided to face the audience from the bottom of my heart,” he said after the event. “My wife encouraged me and sent me a dress through courier. She told me to be dressed properly because dress code is also important when doing a public presentation. This experience also gave me a good opportunity to meet new people beyond my network.”Subhi talked about his childhood dreams and how being sensitive to the signs that came along his path had helped him to convert his dreams into reality.“Giving a presentation at such level has always been a dream and thanks to you this dream came true. Now, I feel much more confident that I can deliver an excellent presentation when I have chance,” he said. “I believe that as MBA30 we are very lucky because beside receiving world class knowledge of management, we have been provided with other tools that really count and make all the difference in the world of business today.”   Abdul talked about all the meaningful moments he had experienced so far and the inspiring people he had met since arriving in Maastricht, expressing a sincere trust that his year at MsM would have a profound impact in his life.“I personally feel that PechaKucha was an opportunity for us to realize our potential and open the gates for us to sell ourselves and to discover new opportunities.”The students’ inspiring presentations were followed by a moment of joyful entertainment and spontaneous laughter when four members of the audience were invited to do a collaborative PechaKucha improvisation on set of random slides.   With everyone in good spirits, the New Year event concluded with informal drinks and snacks in the MsM lounge and an announcement by Ellen that was met with a big round of applause: “Let’s make this first PechaKucha experience the start of a new tradition at MsM!”   By Sueli Brodin
