To Feel at Home
Most of us can say with certainty that our idea of home is tied to a specific location. Can you? Roshi Givechi spent much of her youth on the move -- even now, she travels about Asia for work; never truly settling on any one place -- and in "To Feel at Home", today's Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 104) she defines the elements, experiences, rituals that as a whole form her amoebic idea of this concept we hold so dear.

How to Think on your Feet
"Improv is like being slammed in the face by objects that you don't know what they are. You have no concept of what they are or what they are going to be and you get to use it. It's a gift!" In How to Think on your Feet from PechaKucha Night Kalamazoo Vol. 1, Dann Sytsma was just as surprised as the audience when his presentation, the improvisational slot intended only for the evening's entertainment and for which he had absolutely zero preparation, became not only a coherent speech but an artful and enigmatic PechaKucha masterpiece for the ages!

Making people feel comfortable by John Monks
Taking inspiration from Barack Obama My first PechaKucha talk came about a few weeks ago when Ann Hawkins came into CambridgeSpace and are told me that somebody had nominated me to do a PechaKucha talk. As it turned out, I’d been thinking about doing one for a little while but I've always had a reason not to do it this time so this was the perfect nudge to get me going. Ann has an amazing network of people around Cambridge lots of them are my friends so I've always trusted everything that she does. It was a real joy to be asked. Once I’d got past the point of committing to do the PechaKucha, the challenge was to find the topic I wanted to talk about. I decided to talk about how to make people feel comfortable. I realised that a lot of my work over the years has been about getting people in a position where there are able to do things they wouldn't usually do; putting them at ease and creating a sense of psychological safety. The presentation was a combination of my own story, what I learnt from my family, from projects I’ve worked on and from people I work with. I added to that the reasons why it’s important to make people comfortable and finally I really wanted to give people some tips that they could use immediately to put people at ease. With the topic chosen it was now time to find some photos in many ways this was one of the hardest parts of the whole process. I was easily able to find some of them but one thing that struck me was how hard it is to find analogue photos! With that done I sat down and created my narrative. I had decided to use the Story of Me, Story of Us, Story of Now format famously used by Barack Obama so that came easily to me. After that it was just a case of practising. Putting it together at the last minute The whole experience was brilliant - and it gave me a reminder of a part of my own character - procrastination: even though Ann must have asked me to do the PechaKucha three months ago it took me until almost the last minute to actually sit down and do lots of the work. Something had been holding me back. I have no idea what, but it's something that happens to me again and again. Nonetheless, in the end I was ready - just a couple of days late. On the night it was brilliant! Despite having presented hundreds of times I felt physically nervous; I could feel the adrenaline and cortisol in my bloodstream. I know happens and it's something I actually quite enjoy. Once I stand up those feelings go away and I'm really in my element. PechaKucha was a great experience from start to finish - everyone should have a go sometime! See John's presentation "Making People Feel Comfortable"
