Japanese for “chit chat”, PechaKucha began as nighttime get-togethers in Tokyo in 2003. The format is simple: each speaker gets to tell their story in 20 images, each for 20 seconds. Since its debut, more than three million people have attended PechaKucha events worldwide.
For our inaugural PechaKucha, we’re highlighting five women who’ve “taken the plunge”, from quitting their jobs, countries, and a whole lot more. Their stories are incredibly inspiring (you can see a sneak peek here), and I hope you’ll join me for what is going to be really exciting – and interactive! – event.
