On October 31, 2022, during the Marketing Mondays Pecha Kucha session, District 56 club members learned what a Pecha Kucha is and how to create one. The shared Google drive with a Pecha Kucha PPT template, recorded session, and handouts may be found here

A Pecha Kucha is a storytelling format in which a presenter shows 20 slides with 20 seconds of commentary each. The Pecha Kucha presentation format is a slide show of 20 images, each auto-advancing after 20 seconds. It’s non-stop and you’ve got 400 seconds to tell your story, with visuals guiding the way.
