Crowd Goes Wild

Our good friends at Chicago-based Table XI -- the amazing talent behind the site your are currently visiting -- have some nice things to say about PK, which makes us very happy. Congratulations to our friends and partners at PechaKucha, who are celebrating their 10th anniversary today! As the development team who launched their new site, we’re very proud to be part of this global movement. The founders of PechaKucha—Japanese for “chitchat”—revolutionized the PowerPoint presentation a decade ago, creating a new format in which speakers are limited to 20 slides or images that auto-advance every 20 seconds. Though it started as an informal gathering of architects in Tokyo, the concept quickly expanded: Now 600 cities around the world host their own “PechaKucha Nights” featuring talks from designers, engineers, artists, photographers, chefs, writers, and more. Read more about Table XI's work on the PK site in this case study.

Sprinkling Pixie Dust

Greg Baugues is the Director of Client Service at Table XI, but his training started over a decade ago at Walt Disney World, where he served as a janitor and got an unexpected education in customer service. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from Table XI's April Table Talks) Greg describes Disney's strategy of empowering its employees (er, Cast Members) to make a positive impact on the park's guests. By controlling the visitors' experiences and converting detractors to promoters, they've found impressive ways to preserve the magic.

Inc. Magazine Likes PechaKucha

Ever find yourself wondering how you can add more pep to your presentations? Well, Inc. magazine wondered the same thing, in a business setting, and the latest issue includes a great piece that reveals just how practical the PechaKucha "20 images x 20 seconds" format can be, and how some companies are already using it.  Here's what Autodesk CEO Carl Bass had to say about the format: “For a while, I required my staff to present this way,” says Bass, who complains that most speakers think more about how much they have to say than about how much the audience wants to hear. “It makes people crisp,” he says. “It forces them to organize their thinking.” You can read the full article online here.
