Have you ever done a PechaKucha presentation? It’s a unique twist on the traditional PowerPoint. Presenters are limited to 20 slides and the slides advance automatically every 20 seconds, ready or not! The result is a 7-minute whirlwind. There are inevitable moments of humor and the pace is energizing.
I did my first one recently at an evening hosted by the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) and I must say it was a lot of fun. The evening was meant to provide an introduction into leading online community engagement platforms and MetroQuest was honored to be invited. Since we recently introduced a new tag line for MetroQuest, “Engagement…Optimized,” I decided to tell the story about why we chose it.
By keeping the presentations concise, we were left with plenty of time for a great discussion with the audience. It’s fitting that I’m talking about how to optimize engagement using a presentation style that is meant to optimize engagement.
I put my cell phone on a little tripod on the table so I could record my first foray into this unique presentation style. Enjoy!
