We also suggest short visual presentations called as Pecha kucha (pronounced pe-chak-cha) from the Japanese term for “chit-chat”. Pecha kucha presentations consist of exactly 20 slides, each of which is displayed for 20 seconds.  Total presentation time is precisely 6 minutes 40 seconds and so it is important to use the transition feature in PowerPoint to time your presentation exactly.  The pecha kucha presentation style is highly visual. Text is generally kept to a minimum with images being used to portray key messages.  The pecha kucha presentation format enables the speaker to deliver a short, focused presentation on their topic which really grabs the audience’s attention.
