100% Inspired: Pecha Kucha Night


I am getting pumped for Pecha Kucha Night! I will be one of the 11 speakers sharing my passion in just under 7 minutes. This is a fast-paced evening of sharing ideas and meeting interesting people. This will be my second time doing a Pecha Kucha talk, so I know now that I need to practice, practice, practice to get my timing just right! My talk will be about the inspiration for Princess Monsters from A to Z, a topic which for me has evolved as I have brought this project from an idea I had floating around in my head for several years to finally bringing it into fruition.

If you haven't attended a Pecha Kucha talk before, here is a little bit about the format of the evening:

Get Ready to be inspired by local talent and creative minded community members in a fun, fast paced speaker series event with an unusual twist! The PKN format is 20 slides x 20 Seconds each. This means our presenters have just under 7 minutes to present their unique ideas & creations complimented by 20 images.

PechaKucha (prounounced Pechuk-cha) means "Chit Chat" in Japanese.

And what would a PK Night be without our famous "Beer Break" to socialize and network giving you a chance to "Chit Chat" about all you've seen and heard yourselves!
