From the FAQ of Pecha Kucha website
PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images forward automatically and you talk along to the images.
20 seconds x 20 slides (20×20). While this format is targetting more visual works, I am convinced that with some tiny changes it could be applied in other contexts than a gathering of designers and other artistics works. I have been trying to use Pecha Kucha in out team at work without enough traction so far even though the first session had positive feedbacks. This kind of gathering generates discussions and exchanges that can only foster creativity and innovation! even more useful in the enterprise world.
When you think about it a Pecha Kucha is to formal presentation what Twitter is to blogging with a tiny bit of Meetup (gathering) and Linkedin (professional social network)… and all in real life. How can it get better ?
