Pecha Kucha: Get to the PowerPoint in 20 Slides Then Sit the Hell Down

Like all of you I have sat through my share of interminable PowerPoint presentations wishing, in the words of the late, great Douglas Adams, that the presenter‘s “own major intestine, in a desperate attempt to save life and civilization” would leap “straight up through his neck and throttle his brain”.

That has never happened.

Instead, perhaps we could make sure that presentations follow the rules of Pecha Kucha. These are:

  • You have exactly twenty slides
  • Each slide is displayed for exactly twenty seconds
  • One they’re done you sit down

Be honest, wouldn’t you just love presenters to have done enough ground work to follow those rules instead of rattling on about nothing, nothing, at all? I think I’ll try it for my next presentation.

The revolution starts here…
