(chit-chat) is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (six minutes and 40 seconds in total). It is also known as 20X20. The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights (PKNs).
PechaKucha Night was devised in February 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo's Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa), as a way to attract people to SuperDeluxe, their experimental event space in Roppongi, and to allow young designers to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas.
In 2004, a few cities in Europe began holding PKNs, the first of several hundred cities that have since launched similar events around the world. As of June 2012, PechaKucha Nights were held in 534 cities worldwide.
Volume 9, 23 August 2013 PechaKucha Night will be collaborating with business school for the world, INSEAD. The event, to be held at a beautiful venue in the Asian Civilisations Museum, will feature accomplished INSEAD alumni, academic staff, and students sharing their insights on innovation, organization, game-changers, communities and even jazz and wine’s link to happiness.
