When I was invited to perform a PechaKucha presentation at the PechaKucha Milwaukee #7 event on May 11th, I wasn't sure what to present.
After a bit of thinking, I've decided to tell the story of sketchnotes. I've been telling the story in various ways, but in this case I'll be sharing the lessons I've learned since developing my sketchnote technique in April 2007:
If you're wondering, PechaKucha is a presentation approach using 20 slides x 20 seconds per slide. The slides switch automatically, every 20 seconds until your 6:40 time is up. Talk about pressure to nail the timing.
My slides are ready and I'm practicing my talk, honing the words and tightening the delivery. It's hard work, but I'm feeling good about delivering a good performance and having fun at the same time.
Performing a PechaKucha presentation is a bit out of my comfort zone — yet that's what makes it so exciting and intriguing. I've been pushing myself to develop the skill of public speaking and this seemed like a perfect opportunity to take the next step.
I can't wait to share my PechaKucha and would love you to attend:
This ought to be fun! :-)
