Pecha Kucha is a speedy presentation technique with 20 slides auto-advancing every 20 sec. During a Pecha Kucha event, up to 8 Pecha Kucha presentations take place.
Here is the link to a recorded Pecha Kucha which explains where it comes from and how to create one.
Here are my top 10 tips for delivering an unforgetful Pecha Kucha...
Try to get the pronunciation right. It sound more like pe-'chuck-'cha. Here is a short youtube video on how to pronounce it. http://youtu.be/gdghID66kLs
Take a deep breath, relax and don't run a slide marathon!
Little text / lots of images. An image speaks a thousand words and nobody, not even you as a presenter, has time to read bullet points in 20sec.
Don't forget an introductory slide to your presentation with a meaningful title, because remember, there are many Pecha Kucha presentations during a Pecha Kucha event and you need to get your audience to tune into your topic within the first 20sec.
Don't forget a closing slide with your contact details. So, your Pecha Kucha really is only 18 slides long.
Exercise, exercise, exercise.
Speak freely. There is no time to read from your notecards. Look at your own slides and speak with excitement.
A Pecha Kucha is infotainment at its best and it should be fun, creative and original. Everything is allowed - just no overtime.
A Pecha Kucha ideally should not be a product presentation however, you might be inspired by the format to present your products and services at a later stage in such a concise manner. Pecha Kuchas are contageous.
Pitch-Poise-Pace, the basics of any presentation technique should also be applied here. You will not sound like a machine gun when you change tempo, intonation and pace.
