On August 10th, 2014 Matt Pfeiffer’s life was changed forever, when in the span of 24 hours, he lost both his father and his grandfather to cancer. In the months that followed, his grief and depression were almost more than he could bare until he came up with an idea to honor his late father while at the same time, help fulfill a list of lifelong ambitions. This is the story of how he, along with his father’s ashes, went to the four highest (and sometimes lowest) points in the US, and helped make the entire country a resting place for his beloved father in the process.

MSM students celebrate the New Year with PechaKucha presentations
MBA30 students inspire audience with PechaKucha presentations at New Year’s eventThis year, Maastricht School of Management decided to do something different to celebrate the New Year. Instead of hosting a traditional event with external keynote speakers, the school literally put its own students in the spotlight by giving them the floor and challenging them to present themselves in a creative and inspiring way to staff, friends and local partners and stakeholders.Teaming up with the organizers of PechaKucha Maastricht, MsM took up thePechaKucha concept as a unique communication tool to help its students share their personal experiences, dreams and ideas with the local community.PechaKucha was devised by Klein Dytham Architecture in Tokyo in 2003 as a fast-paced presentation format to showcase new ideas. The concept is simple yet effective: each speaker shows 20 slides, each for 20 seconds. PechaKucha events are now happening in over 700 cities across the globe and have grown into valued platforms for inspiration and networking.During a preparatory session in early December 2013, two team members of PechaKucha Maastricht, Jean-Paul Toonen and Sueli Brodin, visited MsM to introduce the PechaKucha concept to the MBA students. Jean-Paul found the magical words to motivate them: “See this as your launching platform to the world.” The students’ reaction to the 20x20 presentation format was overwhelmingly enthusiastic, especially after they were given a chance to test their own creative skills by improvising a presentation on random slides. It was a full audience of students, staff, partners in MsM’s mentorship program, members of the local business community and interested stakeholders who on 17 January came together to celebrate the New Year with a special and much anticipated PechaKucha session.MsM Dean Director Wim Naudé kicked off the afternoon with a warm word of welcome and an informative overview of MsM’s activities and ambitions for the New Year. Ellen Narinx, MsM Career Center Senior Officer and coordinator of the Mentorship Program, then shortly explained the PechaKucha concept to the audience before inviting three students to take the stage. The students, Vijay Wakchaure from India, Subhi Najjar from Syria and Abdul Iddrisu from Ghana, spoke in turn and conquered the audience with their authentic and vivid personal stories. Vijay gave a candid and colorful comparison between his life in India and his experience in the Netherlands, stressing on the new and unexpected, at times even challenging things he had learned during his first three months at MsM. “I decided to face the audience from the bottom of my heart,” he said after the event. “My wife encouraged me and sent me a dress through courier. She told me to be dressed properly because dress code is also important when doing a public presentation. This experience also gave me a good opportunity to meet new people beyond my network.”Subhi talked about his childhood dreams and how being sensitive to the signs that came along his path had helped him to convert his dreams into reality.“Giving a presentation at such level has always been a dream and thanks to you this dream came true. Now, I feel much more confident that I can deliver an excellent presentation when I have chance,” he said. “I believe that as MBA30 we are very lucky because beside receiving world class knowledge of management, we have been provided with other tools that really count and make all the difference in the world of business today.” Abdul talked about all the meaningful moments he had experienced so far and the inspiring people he had met since arriving in Maastricht, expressing a sincere trust that his year at MsM would have a profound impact in his life.“I personally feel that PechaKucha was an opportunity for us to realize our potential and open the gates for us to sell ourselves and to discover new opportunities.”The students’ inspiring presentations were followed by a moment of joyful entertainment and spontaneous laughter when four members of the audience were invited to do a collaborative PechaKucha improvisation on set of random slides. With everyone in good spirits, the New Year event concluded with informal drinks and snacks in the MsM lounge and an announcement by Ellen that was met with a big round of applause: “Let’s make this first PechaKucha experience the start of a new tradition at MsM!” By Sueli Brodin
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.
