Pecha kucha: gone in 20 seconds

  • Date: 12 June 2012 CANCELLED
  • Time: 5pm - 7pm
  • Location: Blues Cafe
  • Target group: All doctoral students

Session: Pecha Kucha is a simple but effective presentation format where you show 20 slides, each for 20 seconds. Since it was invented in Japan in 2003, it has become a global phenomenon, with Pecha Kucha nights being hosted in cities all over the world. Now the University of Essex is hosting its first ever Pecha Kucha night, in which this exciting format will be used as a platform for doctoral researchers to present their work. Participants will have chance to sample the Pecha Kucha method, either by delivering or observing these types of presentations. This fun two-hour session is also a great opportunity for networking with other PhD students and academics, and will include a Japanese-themed buffet. For those who would like to network and socialise further, the Pecha Kucha night will be followed by drinks in the Top Bar.

As this session includes a specially prepared Japanese buffet, you will be required to pay a 10 deposit to secure your place once you have registered (details will be given in your confirmation email). Your deposit will then be returned to you at the end of the event.
