Great minds gather at Extreme IC event
44 clients, partners and friends took on the challenge of PechaKucha at a rather extreme networking event.
PechaKucha (from the Japanese for ‘chit-chat’), is a presentation style like no other. Each speaker has 20 slides, and 20 seconds per slide. Like any good communication – ideas need to be clear, concise and to the point. And those presenting didn’t disappoint.
– ‘How to create a new chapter in communications with limited budget’
– ‘How to engage your audience despite the bipolar contradictions of human nature’
– ‘Why in times of crisis, it may be necessary to communicate without the buy-in of senior leaders’
– ‘How to reach the new millennial audience, and why this is important’
– ‘Reducing the noise: what personalised communication could look like’
– ‘Becoming a communications ninja: communicating without a safety net.’
“I felt the event was a success for lots of reasons – not least because it was a great deal of fun!” explained 44 client partner, Eddie Gormley.
“Firstly, the ideas that our friends and partners presented were fascinating insights into how people have reacted in the industry and what’s coming down the line.
“Secondly, the quality of the presentations – and by working in the PechaKucha style – meant that all the presentations were slick, quick and effective, and helped make the entire event run like clockwork.”
Similar networking events are planned at 44 over the coming months. If you’d like to know more, drop us a line and we really hope to see you at the next one!
