Learn a New Presentation Style
For the first few minutes of this chapter meeting, you’ll get a chance to see a demonstration of a type of PowerPoint presentation style invented in Japan and called Pecha Kucha. It is fast-paced, and guaranteed to keep your attention. The premise is to present 20 slides for 20 seconds each.

Lin Laurie, your president, will talk for 5 minutes on the various questions that plaque presenters: How many topics should be on a PPT page? Why would you create a PPT with lots of topics on a page?

Listen to Mini-Ted Talks for Tech Comers
Next, 3 of our brave members will volunteer to step up to the podium and give a 6-10 minute talk on an area of interest to fellow tech comm professionals. If you’ve ever watched a professional talk, like at Tacoma Tech Comm, and said, I can do that but weren’t sure if you had what it took to talk for 45 minutes in front of a room full of strangers, here’s a chance to take a baby step in that direction. And you, the audience, will not only get to support your fellow technical communicators, but you’ll also learn something new. We promise that the evening won’t include speakers doing what the following cartoon shows.
