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."

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.
