2021 Pecha Kucha Event

Participate as a Presenter or Coach

23 March 2021 | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM PST

As ombuds, we help people understand and tell their own stories.  The Pecha Kucha event at our annual conference has been a way for us to connect as colleagues and as a profession through our own powerful stories.  Our 2021 conference will continue that tradition. Tell your story! Share how your life’s experiences and perspectives have shaped your ombuds work, led you to become an ombuds, and/or have informed the way you do your work.  

Pecha Kucha is a way to tell a story in 20 image-centered slides, timed at 20 seconds per slide. As with IOA conferences in years past, Pecha Kucha 2021 promises to be a signature event. This year, Pecha Kucha will be presented in a virtual environment. As part of supporting you, you will receive coaching on how to prepare and share in a virtual environment and how to get the most impact out of your story.  

Make your pitch using the Pecha Kucha Pitch Form. Don’t let time zone, language, or other barriers keep you from applying. Your story can be shared!
