Gearing Up for METRO's First Pecha Kucha Event

METRO_PECHAKUCHAOn March 11, METRO will host our first Pecha Kucha event. Pecha Kucha (pronounced in three syllables like "pe-chak-cha) is a an exciting presentation format that provides an innovative, efficient, and entertaining platform for sharing information with an audience.

The format is simple. Presenters are allowed 20 slides, which automatically advance every 20 seconds for a 6 minute, 40-second presentation. METRO's first Pecha Kucha event (March 11, 5:30-7:30 at METRO's Training Center) will focus on "library technology" and provide METRO members with the opportunity to showcase projects, concepts, ideas they'd like to share with other librarians in the city. Check out the videos below for some examples of how Pecha Kucha is done.

This evening event will also feature refreshments and an opportunity to network with other members of the METRO community. This event is offered free-of-charge as a way to share information among institutions and individuals in the METRO membership. Click here to register for this free event (required):
