!!! PechaKucha of the Day App !!!

The PechaKucha of the Day App is available Now! With 9000+ presentations now online (and growing daily!), uploaded by our Global Network of 986 cities, we wanted to curate one presentation each day that we felt shouldn't be missed, and deliver it right to your phone :-)

PK People: Thorsten Bösch

Thorsten Bösch is one of the colorful cast of characters behind PechaKucha Nights in Chicago. When not busy designing visualizations for architects via visualized concepts, he's focussed on building the most up to date and complete digital model of the entire city of Chicago!

Presentation of the Day


Michelle Sin

Environmental Entrepreneur in Markham

As the first speaker of PKN Shanghai #27, Michelle Sin sets the bar high for the rest of the evening. Her insights into the Chinese education system are known to few, and described accurately by even less. The first seconds looking at her second slide you think it is a computer generated pattern, ... but then you realise it isn't. Learn how education isn't just about quantity, but also about quality.
