Last weekend was Canoo’s annual Continuous Improvement workshop, where we retreat to our secret Alp fortress to discuss the coming year and where we want to go as a company. My favorite memory is getting licked by a cow in a breakout session. Only in Switzerland. My second favorite was the Pecha Kucha contest.
A Pecha Kucha is a 20 slide presentation where each slide is presented for only 20 seconds. That’s 6 minutes and 20 seconds total. It’s a lot different than a normal presentation, and I’ve already blogged my “9 Beginner Mistakes” a few years ago. After watching 6 other people give Pecha Kuchas, I was struck by a couple common themes in what was working and what wasn’t. Check out my Canoo.com blog post "More Pecha Kucha Lessons Learned" to read more about Pecha Kuchas and what I think it takes to deliver a great one.
