@ POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA: STARTUP THE PARTY SF X TOKYO
ON SEP 18, 2014
Pieterjan Vandaele, Roddy Lindsay, Taj Campbell, and Yuichiro Yamanaka take on the world's largest train station: Shinjuku.
The journey to Mordor is easier than trying to find your way out of Shinjuku station. And at least Middle Earth's locals are patient enough to not run you over with, suitcases, strollers or walkers. Shinjuku station is a great place to visit, however the large station adds to confusion and frustration. Taj, and his team of presenters, suggest on a new system of "hubs" and colored lines, to help travelers make their way through the large train station.

This is a look at finding delight and laughter, loneliness and frustration, and amazing people we find in our business travel journey. Different than holiday and exploration travel where it's all about "me", business travel comes with a "they" agenda and the parameters that brings. The trick is not to lose yourself in the agenda and to enjoy the ride and the surprises you may find.
English = Time + Tenacity + Tears

“English is a frankenstein's monster. It's a hodgepodge abomination of rules that we break all the time.”
In English = Time + Tenacity + Tears from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 133rd Volume, student and literary enthusiast Ṣeyi Adebanjo, discusses her frustration with the “global language”. The real world is full of puzzles, all of which are more or less systematic. To her the English language itself is the most complex puzzle of all. Though she found learning the convoluted language to be a challenge, her tenacity as both a bibliophile and writer eventually paid off; the end product was worth it.

Belly Buttons: An Unexpected Portal to Miracles
BY JOHN LAMPERIS
@ VOL 7
ON MAY 25, 2017
The birth of a blind child followed by the birth of a sighted child provided a miraculous discovery for John N. Lamperis, the father of both, who was not only present at their births, but assisted in making their belly buttons. While sharing his journey, John tells humorous anecdotes of his frustration with his oldest daughter’s attire, which revealed his creation—that is, the belly button—and describes the joy in knowing that, sighted or not, each of children is a blessing.

An amazing message from photographer Terri Vruggink: I am taking advantage of an opportunity to help raise funds for Haiti. There is an amazing group of people running PechaKucha and I have agreed to be a presenter in Detroit this Saturday!!! I am excited but also at a complete loss. Please understand- I have never been a public speaker, I hardly know what to say. The thing is, in this I am speaking for the people who do not have the voice to speak for themselves right now, and this is my calling. Of that I am sure. It was no mistake that I was there when the Earthquake happened, I have never doubted the trip- not even when we wondered if we would make it home. Haiti is on my mind daily and it is up to me to help spread the word of how to help. It is also up to you. My dear friend Theo said this to me when I returned from Africa, and was voicing my frustration with not being able to help enough. “Terri- Africa is a crisis, and you do what you would do in any crisis~ you do what you can“ My friends, Haiti is a crisis. Do what you can. My Haiti photo gallery link HERE “there but for the grace of God, go absolutely ANY of us Terri”~ A gentleman I sat next to on the plane back to the states…
Minor Urban Disasters
Each day we pass by what Ariel Schlesinger calls "Minor Urban Disasters". These can include, but are not limited to: lazy constructions, acts of frustration taken out on physical objects, and discarded or misplaced products. In this edition of Presentation of the Day from PKN Tokyo Vol. 74, he points out the fact that most of us tend to overlook the humor, or sadness that can be found when coming into contact with these small peculiarities. One must have sympathy for the inanimate, for these senseless acts of human savagery and carelessness are vicious: cinder block heedlessly used to fill a circular window in Tel Aviv, a tossed-aside umbrella bent by some angry soul, bricks once painted with signs of guidance improperly re-situated, road signs knocked back by trucks not suited for the clearance height. Won't you open your heart to those who cannot defend themselves?

Follow your passion, say MSM students at PechaKucha event
“Stunning!”, “Brilliant!”, “They managed to surprise us again!” These are some of the comments that were heard at this year’s PechaKucha event at Maastricht School of Management on Thursday 22 March. The eight students who took on the PechaKucha stage impressed the full audience of staff members and fellow students gathered in the business lounge with the personal and sometimes even intimate stories they dared to reveal. PechaKucha is a concise and fast-paced presentation style that consists in using only 20 slides, and 20 seconds per slide, to share inspiring ideas or projects. Each year MSM and PechaKucha Maastricht team up to organize a special PechaKucha event for the School’s students and staff. From writing a letter to your future self to embarking on a backpack journey around the world to managing a competitive cheerleader team from abroad to discovering the joys and challenges of gaming or oil painting, many speakers emphasized the value of embracing uncertainty and change. “Accept challenges and develop a positive and fearless attitude,” said Juan Carlos Ramonet Moreno (MM5). “Don’t get obsessed with a clear path and embark on a journey of self-discovery and continuous improvement,” advised Maria Kirichenko (MM5). “Value the importance of having a hobby and what you can learn from it,” highlighted Di Wu and Ramzi AlAshabi (MBA34). “Overcome your frustration and dare to change your career,” said Laura Sala Segura (MM5). Defining themselves as risk-takers, these five students showed how they all got energy and new ideas from pursuing their passions in life. Natania Leongson (MM5) and Hai Dang (MBA34) delved into deep personal or global topics. “I would like to inspire you to shift your mindset about the concept of identity. Learn to view it not as something permanent or predetermined, but as a malleable, fluid, and constantly changing phenomenon,” Natania said. In her presentation, she used the metaphor of an Indian totem to show how identity can be seen as a series of experiences that continuously shape and color as we grow older. Hai revealed his profound love and sense of care for his home country Vietnam when he spoke about the Son Doong Cave, the world’s largest cave. “Exploring Son Doong with its extraordinarily rich and unique natural environment should be done with utmost care and in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner,” he urged. Speaking last and bringing back his fellow students to their year at MSM, Praveen Saragadam (MM5) offered a straightforward and pragmatic tip, based on his personal experience: “Let’s suit up!” he exclaimed with a broad and enthusiastic smile. “In this changing world, the way we dress up has a significant impact on creating the first impression, so let’s suit up and build up our career!” As every year, the event concluded with much joy and laughter when Oliver Olson, Director Global Education Programs, gave his now famous improvisation on random slides. Oliver used the opportunity to praise the students on their earlier performances and the stories they had shared: “It was wonderful to discover all these secret talents in the MSM family!” By Sueli Brodin
