            NEXT EVENT VOL 21

            Enjoy a range of lightining presentations in the inimitable PechaKucha style! 

            PechaKucha (or chitchat in Japanese) is a creative style of presenting that was started by two architects in Tokyo in 2003 as way for young creatives to show their work and network. Since then the concept has grown and PechaKucha talks now run in over 1100 cities around the world bringing together people from all creative backgrounds.

            PechaKucha Cambridge has featured a wide range of speakers from many different disciplines including science, art, design, photography, fashion, architecture, mental health, sport and more.

            If you'd like to know more about presenting at a PechaKucha night, please get in touch!

            Charlotte Steggall

            Higher Education Champion, Take Your Place in Cambridge

            When Charlotte Steggall talks to young people about the schools programme Take Your Place, helping young people with little or no experience of university explore the world of higher education, the topic that always comes up is money. The barriers that stop people talking about money, the stigmas and judgements, are things that Charlotte is helping to get rid of. Encouraging young people to be open about money helps them to be more confident about making financial decisions and explore their options.

            Making people feel comfortable by John Monks

            Taking inspiration from Barack Obama


            My first PechaKucha talk came about a few weeks ago when Ann Hawkins came into CambridgeSpace and are told me that somebody had nominated me to do a PechaKucha talk. As it turned out, I’d been thinking about doing one for a little while but I've always had a reason not to do it this time so this was the perfect nudge to get me going.
            Ann has an amazing network of people around Cambridge lots of them are my friends so I've always trusted everything that she does. It was a real joy to be asked.
            Once I’d got past the point of committing to do the PechaKucha, the challenge was to find the topic I wanted to talk about. I decided to talk about how to make people feel comfortable. I realised that a lot of my work over the years has been about getting people in a position where there are able to do things they wouldn't usually do; putting them at ease and creating a sense of psychological safety. The presentation was a combination of my own story, what I learnt from my family, from projects I’ve worked on and from people I work with. I added to that the reasons why it’s important to make people comfortable and finally I really wanted to give people some tips that they could use immediately to put people at ease.
            With the topic chosen it was now time to find some photos in many ways this was one of the hardest parts of the whole process. I was easily able to find some of them but one thing that struck me was how hard it is to find analogue photos! ?With that done I sat down and created my narrative. I had decided to use the Story of Me, Story of Us, Story of Now format famously used by Barack Obama so that came easily to me. After that it was just a case of practising.

            Putting it together at the last minute


            The whole experience was brilliant - and it gave me a reminder of a part of my own character - procrastination: even though Ann must have asked me to do the PechaKucha three months ago it took me until almost the last minute to actually sit down and do lots of the work. Something had been holding me back. I have no idea what, but it's something that happens to me again and again. Nonetheless, in the end I was ready - just a couple of days late.
            On the night it was brilliant! Despite having presented hundreds of times I felt physically nervous; I could feel the adrenaline and cortisol in my bloodstream. I know happens and it's something I actually quite enjoy. Once I stand up those feelings go away and I'm really in my element. PechaKucha was a great experience from start to finish - everyone should have a go sometime!
