I Love PechaKucka New Haven (PKN) – If you haven’t heard of it, you are probably not Japanese (it means chit-chat), or you just haven’t had the opportunity to be exposed to it yet here in New Haven. Thanks to an all volunteer group, and Bentara as a gracious host, it has become a treasured community tradition.
It’s simple: each presenter gets to show 20 slides and gets a fixed 20 seconds to speak about each slide. It’s fun to do and fun to watch. For more info on becoming a presenter, or about PKN in general, check out: http://pkn-newhaven.org/
|Eric Epstien, PKN MC, loosening up the crowd. He’s really good at that, and various other things as well.|
