Pecha Kucha

Steve in action

As part of the preparation process for the IntEntSem, all participants are asked to make a Pecha-Kucha style presentation, to introduce themselves to the other IntEntSem participants.

Pecha Kucha is a great networking and presentation technique used to deliver effective, concise, and dynamic presentations (see for more information).

The original Pecha Kucha uses a 20 slides with 20 seconds per slide principle, with each presentation lasting 6 minutes, 40 seconds in total. We are using the Pecha Kucha technique in a modified manner, asking all participants and coaches to create an 8-slide Pecha Kucha style presentation with 12 seconds per slide, giving each person a bit more than one and a half minutes to give an overview of who they are.

Each slide can only consist of 1 picture. So 8 slides means 8 pictures. These pictures will apear in a strictly timed presentation session and will help you to present yourself.

We advize you to select 1 picture per slide that reflects something about yourself (hobby, characteristic, idol, birth city, etc.) and goes perfect together with your talk about yourself.

Prepare this presentation in advance in order to being able to talk within the given timeframe.

To give you an idea of the Pecha Kucha technique, check out this video:

Below you can find a template for the presentation with the correct timeframe already implemented. You can use this as a template to insert your own images, but please to not change the time setting! All students and coaches must keep to this format.
