Abstract

We incorporated Pecha Kucha presentations into three business classes helping students to achieve more focused and engaging presentations. Pecha Kucha is a highly structured yet flexible style of presentation which requires twenty visual slides with few words that are automatically displayed for twenty seconds. While the response of students as presenters and as audience members, and faculty was positive, presenters found the limited content and time challenging, suggesting the need for additional practice with this approach. Audiences found the presentations engaging. Professors found that Pecha Kucha requires students to focus on their message and visually engage the audience which are useful presentation skills.
