A local public figure speaker event utilizing the 10x20x20 concept. It's based on "Pecha Kucha" http://www.pecha-kucha.org/presentations/ which is an international speaker series that started in Tokyo and has spread around the world. The format is 10 consecutive presenters; who each show 20 images; each image is automatically timed for 20 seconds (6 minutes 40 seconds total). There's no question period - just on to the next presenter. The condensed, rapid-fire format is appealing in that you get a lots of different viewpoint is a condensed evening of discussion. Presentations will ponder a theme in their presentations; What is Next for Winnipeg as a city?
