'Pecha Kucha' Presentations from the Heart

What's a 'Pecha Kucha'?

First of all, here's how to pronounce it. A pecha kucha is a presentation in which 20 PowerPoint slides are shown for 20 seconds each. Each presenter has just under 7 minutes to speak before the presentation ends, forcing them to be concise and creative to deliver their message.

Pecha Kuchas are popular in Japan, but are catching on in the United States. At a recent Washington event hosted by the Conservancy, speakers used pecha kucha presentations to convey their messages about women and conservation. Speakers included Washington Conservancy Director Karen Anderson, Karen Poiani, Chief Conservation Strategy Officer for The Nature Conservancy; Dr. Nalini Nadkarni, Conservancy board member and college professor; and Mary Ruckelshaus, Managing Director of the Natural Capital Project.
