Course Description

PechaKucha means “chit chat” in Japanese.  A PechaKucha is a presentation style that involves spending 20 seconds each on 20 PowerPoint slides, providing an audience with a brief 6 minute, 40 second presentation. Because humans are so visually oriented, this type of presentation uses images, rather than words, to convey the message, providing an innovative way to get a message across to users.  PowerPoint is the typical vehicle for creating and delivering a PechaKucha presentation.  In one day, this seminar will show you how to use PowerPoint with PechaKucha in mind.
