Rise and Design: Pecha Kucha Networking

Friday 6th December: 09:00 – 12:00

PROTO | Abbots Hill | Baltic Business Quarter | Gateshead | NE8 3DF

It's that time of year again, when we let the Design Network North family tell each other all about what they do, what they love, or perhaps something that fascinates them.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Pecha Kucha concept (Japanese for chit-chat), it's a way of presenting your talk in a 20x20 format. Each speaker gets 20 slides in total, with 20 seconds per slide to tell everyone about themselves, what they do and why you should talk to them afterwards. The slides advance automatically so each presentation will last exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Which is just about our average attention span !

There are 15 speaker places available, on a first come first served basis, so if you want to present a talk don't hang about. And if you've never given a talk before, this is a really good way to start. It happens so fast you don't get time to be nervous. And we can guarantee a very appreciative crowd.

You might even be treated to mince pies, and another Christmas tradition - People Looking Through Things!
