Choice. Which choice to make. How to make that choice and why. Which choice would you choose to re-choose?
Our speakers will each speak to the choices that define them, the ones they wrestle with and possibly the ones that they weren't able to make. In 6 minutes and 40 seconds, they will each share their unique viewpoint on the central theme of "Choice."
- Dale Leckie - Geologist & Writer
- Anna Cooley - Director & Filmmaker
- Kathryn Smith - Musician & Playwright
- Brett Bergie - Writer & Cyclist navigating gender transition and her wife's cancer
- With more speakers to be announced in the coming days!
PechaKucha Nights are part of an international speaker series spanning over 900 cities around the globe. They follow a specific format: each speaker presents 20 slides for only 20 seconds per slide. This means each speaker has only 6 minutes and 40 seconds to express their view on the theme. It makes the presentations concise, diverse, fast-paced and a lot of fun.

Watch as he shares his passion for robots, particularly the ones that are easy to control. (in English) More to see: http://www.ez-robot.com/default.aspx
