PKN Maastricht Vol. 2

The city of Maastricht recently hosted its second PechaKucha Night, again with a terrific lineup of presenters -- you can view streaming video of all the presentations here. Organizer Martijn Kagenaar reports. After the overwhelming success of PKN’s January debut in Maastricht, our audience didn’t have to wait long for a new PKN. March 20th, about 250 visitors saw speakers from six nations: Australia, Belgium, Croatia, Germany, USA, and even some from the Netherlands. In AINSI, 1 kilometer from Belgium and 20 kilometers from Germany, an international crowd got together for 12 presentations. They saw and heard about life in the roof gutter, singing bridges, and a journey to the moon. Maastricht’s mayor was delighted, as was the well known writer of "The Creative City," Charles Landry. He was our very special guest, hosted by Mrs. Odile Wolfs, cultural delegate at the Province of Limburg. The day after, we were her guests in a masterclass at TEFAF, the world’s leading Art Fair in Maastricht. Charles inspired his Maastricht students for one day to think about crossing borders in order to become a real creative region. Maastricht is a candidate to be Cultural Capital of Europe in 2018. Another fun part of PKN Maastricht is the PechaKitchen, which Martijn describes as the "speakers-only after party: a cooking workshop, a few weeks after the event. There we can look back on the presentations, look forward, and make further plans to co-operate with each other." Below, photos from the event -- see more in this Flickr photoset. PKN Maastricht Vol. 3 will take place June 20.

The master classes and workshops have the goal of inspiring people to cook and to save time when doing so. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is whiskerlicious, with the wonderful illustrated poster for the upcoming PKN Mendoza Vol. 6, pictured above.  Photos The city of Chelmsford hasn't had its first PKN yet -- although we expect that will happen soon -- but here's what appears to be a bit of... guerrilla teasing? It was found on Instagram, with the tags #pechakucha, #chelmsford, and #20x20.

PechaKucha new year event now a tradition at Maastricht School of Management

Following the success of last year’s PechaKucha event to welcome the New Year at MSM, three groups from the MBA31 class once again bravely accepted the challenge to present their dreams, projects and visions to staff, friends, and MSM’s local partners and stakeholders by using the powerful PechaKucha format. Devised by Klein Dytham Architecture in Tokyo in 2003 as a fast-paced presentation format to showcase new ideas, the PechaKucha concept is simple yet effective: each speaker shows 20 slides, each for 20 seconds. PechaKucha events are now happening in 800 cities across the globe and have grown into valued platforms for inspiration, creativity and networking. On Friday 16 January, four beautiful African business-minded women : Ms. Rebecca Freda Namagga (Uganda), Ms. Amina Mahamudu Serwenda (Tanzania), Ms. Oluwabunmi Folowosele and  Ms. Olanike Omobolanle Ojo (both from Nigeria) shared their entrepreneurial ambitions and shared their visions on women empowerment in Africa with great conviction. They were followed by Yosief Iyassu (Eritrea), Emmanuel Balele (Tanzania) and James Bamwete (Uganda) who described the deplorable health and environment effects caused by the use of inefficient traditional charcoal cooking stoves in Africa and showed how the situation could considerably improve by replacing them with energy saving clay-based cooking stoves. Presenting last, Eleftheria Sitara from Greece gave a very personal story of her journey into the MBA program at MSM and how studying with fellow students from 22 different nationalities has brought a new meaning to the word “beauty” for her. Eleftheria said she found it an unforgettable learning experience: “When I first heard about the PechaKucha concept, I thought of a double-edged sword. Based on the power of images – that sometimes may be equal to a thousand words – PechaKucha allows presenters to express themselves concisely but still in a rich and creative way. The greatest challenge though is picking up the appropriate structure and content for your presentation in order to deliver your message to the audience in the most efficient way. My idea was to present a topic regarding ‘beauty’ and the unexpected ways in which I discovered it through my experiences. The reason I selected it was because I wanted to present not only a brief description of my personal attitude towards life, but also because I wanted to express publicly my gratitude for all the precious moments I am currently sharing with my international classmates. Although in the beginning I was thinking that the PechaKucha challenge was far too fresh and uncomfortable for me to engage in, from the moment I entered the room I felt an immediate friendliness. During my presentation I saw people’s nods and smiles, showing that they were eager to listen to what I was saying. That sense of encouragement from the audience to whom you express your inner ideas is a remarkable feeling that can hardly be forgotten. Relying on the inspiring feedback I received from people telling me how much they were touched and surprised by the spirit created through the single means of a presentation, I would definitely recommend to everyone to try the PechaKucha experience even just for once in their lifetime.” Just like last year, the audience enthusiastically reacted to the students’ presentations. The event was followed by a friendly and relaxed network session in the Business Lounge with all participants.



Did you know? 75% of the world’s food comes from 12 plant and 5 animal species!
