Presentation Style: Pecha Kucha

Pecha Kucha is a simple presentation format devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham where you show 20 slides or images, each for only 20 second. The images or slides advance automatically to keep you on time and you can only talk about each slide or image while it’s being displayed. Designed to keep presentations short and to the point, each presentation is only 6 minutes and 40 seconds long! This tutorial will discuss how to create a pecha kucha style presentation using PowerPoint Uses: • Public speaking presentations • Introducing new concepts • Final presentations • Reviewing a book or movie

 

“Good Business”

Greetings, I have found two videos that are short but gave some easy to understand information about personas.  From the readings and other advice, I am learning that being highly in-touch with the user is a staple of the UX experience – from the initial phases to through the research process, at the conferencing table and right through to the very end of the process.  As Leisa and others have pointed out, being empathetic to the user should be the focus of “good” business .
