10 Ways To Create Awesome Meetings

CAM 010: 10 Ways To Create Awesome Meetings – PechaKucha Style!

Have you got :20 seconds to make your next meeting awesome? Have you got 20 X :20 seconds?

Because episode 10 of the Create Awesome Meetings Podcast is a recording of me (Gord Sheppard) delivering a PechaKucha style talk called “10 Ways To Create Awesome Meetings” to the Emerging Health Leaders group in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

What is PechaKucha you ask? According to PechaKucha.org, “PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.”

That’s 6 minutes and :40 seconds of your life that you’re never going to get back, whether you’re giving the talk or you’re in the audience.

And as a Speaker I can tell you that this format is very challenging because you have to be succinct and well prepared, which is why you’re going to get a whole lot of meeting productivity information and inspiration in a very short time during today’s podcast episode, including tips like:

  • Why getting real by building trust with your team is so important
