The Network Effect

BY BRYAN CHAN
@ VOL 11 ON NOV 20, 2014

Sometimes a chance meeting can change the ecosystem of an entire community. By finding themselves at the intersection of introductions and innovation, Bob Vanden Burgt and Bryan Chan formed an unbreakable team that has leveraged thousands of new connections, relationships and ideas throughout the Madison community. They helped take a relatively unheard of event and turned it into one of the most popular and influential networking opportunies in the city, allowing it to serve as the inspiration and spring board for other collaborative endeavors in our community. This presentation will show how powerful things happen in the world because of connections and the network effect.

The Tohoku Effect

BY MARK DYTHAM
IN TOKYO

“When the Haiti earthquake struck, we ran an event around the world on 24 hour skype. A Year later, the shoe was on the other foot; the earthquake happened in Japan. 105 cities got together within 3 weeks and we held an Inspire Japan Event.”


From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Speaker and PechaKucha founder Mark Dytham presents "The Tohoku Effect" on PechaKucha’s and PechaKucha Inspire’s history. No one could have predicted that the small one-off event would balloon into a popular presentation format to be used the world over. PechaKucha Certainly has its perks; It’s free, It’s simple, it lets people give their work exposure. Most importantly of all, it builds community. It is such communities that come together when tragedies strike and help build warm spaces.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesdaym March 17th, 2016.
