Pecha Kucha is a fun and innovative presentation method in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (six minutes and 40 seconds in total). These slides rely heavily on pictorial representations to convey content. The name Pecha Kucha comes from Japanese: ペチャクチャ, and is loosely translated as “chit-chat.” It is pronounced pe-cha-ku-cha (i.e., as written) with equal stress on each of the 4 syllables.
