News & Opinion: PechaKucha Recap

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:40 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

This week was the sixth PechaKucha event we've held in Milwaukee, and it was the biggest yet. With nine presenters, and a venue absolutely stuffed full of people, it's making us wonder if we've outgrown another location. Why so many people this time? We didn't charge an admission, but instead encouraged the audience to make a donation to a Haitian relief fund. That certainly helped, but the presentations were most interesting - really some of the best we've seen yet.

Here's a couple videos from the evening:

We're looking to do the next event in April or May. If you're in the Milwaukee area and want to stay up to date, sign up for the newsletter at the Milwaukee PechaKucha site. If you'd like to be a presenter, there's also a sign-up form at the same link.
