Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit-chat”, pecha kucha is usually pronounced in three syllables like “pe-chak-cha”. The presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds apiece, for a total time of 6 minutes, 40 seconds. This makes for a concise and efficient presentation that moves at a rapid pace. Last month, I had the opportunity to present at the Monona Terrace for Pecha Kucha Night Madison in front of 250 people. This was my third pecha kucha presentation. The first was at the Comedy Club downtown and was about mixed martial arts. I focused the presentation on the history of martial arts and included some of my favorite fighters. The slides of the ring girls apparently caught everyone’s attention. The second was at the Madison Marriott West in July, 2011 and was titled How I Became the Healthiest Man in America. It was fun to share how I was designated by Men’s Health Magazine as the “Healthiest Man in America” and was in front of around 60 to 70 people. If you closely you can see my virtual tiara :-) This time, the topic was Doing What You Love. As one of eight presenters, I chose to share my passion for personal training and helping people achieve their health and fitness goals. Check out the video and let me know what you think.
