Welcome!

BY SIMONA POP
@ VOL 12 ON SEP 19, 2016

In 'Welcome' a talk given by Simona Pop at PechaKucha London Vol 12, Simona definitely pops!

Simona takes us on a weird and wacky tour through all things that represent 'Welcome' to her - such as the PINEAPPLE!! - Any guest who was invited to a party where a whole pineapple was displayed, knew that no expense was spared in guaranteeing the guests' enjoyment. It was this that made the crowned fruit the high symbol of social events and became the meaning of welcome, friendship, and hospitality.

How Lego Taught Me to PLAY

BY JAMES "JP" POULTER
@ VOL 11 ON JUN 16, 2016

In How Lego taught me to PLAY JP (or James Poulter if you like it formal), Head of Social for LEGO's digital kids communities, addresses how the modern world has sucked the play and fun out of everyday life - especially for adults! Has social media has turned us all in spectators rather than participants?

In 6.40 minutes JP shares some ideas for how we can bring the fun back into life, even if it is through the use of modern technology (JP's personal favourite is Snapchat!).

Listen in for the end when JP recites to us a brand new poem, featuring Snapchat!

Oh What A Night!

We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come from getting something we don’t have, but from recognizing and appreciating what we do have. A REALLY BIG thank you to everyone who made PechaKucha Night #ldnont vol. 1 a success and who brought so much energy to the room to support our vol. 1 presenters and community.
A big shout out to our very first PechaKucha Night #ldnont vol. 1 speakers:
−     Paul Grech
−     Sarah Ashfield
−     Kenny Khoo
−     Andrew Kaszowski
I ended up stepping in at the last minute as a presenter, as we originally had seven people booked… and was happy for the opportunity. It takes a lot of guts to get up there and present, so a big thank you to Paul, Sarah, Kenny and Andrew for leaning in and seizing the opportunity to share your personal and professional experiences.
I had a sense of pride looking out into audience. Seeing so many different people representing different industries, diverse cultures and numerous generations coming together to support one another while sharing passions and experiences… it made my heart smile.  
A big thanks to our wonderful sponsors:
−      201 Solutions who sponsored the cost of the space at Innovation Works, coffee and tea
−      AtPrint who provided us 50 posters to post around the city
−      Melrose Bakery who provided us with two trays of yummy goodies
−      Mc Spirit Studios who did the audio recordings and took some photos
Our turnout was fabulous with just over 60 people (which was a 75% attendance rate based on our initial registrations). As well, thank you to the attendees who donated to the PechaKucha Global Fund and contributed items for the London Food Bank: we dropped off 3 boxes to the London Food Bank this week and $88.00 CDN is being transferred via PayPal to the PK Global Fund.
Stay tuned for details around PechaKucha Night #ldnont vol. 2 which will be happening on Tuesday, April 25th at Innovation Works from 6:20pm – 8:20pm.
High-fives and fist-bumps! Janic and Andrew
