Want to try Pecha Kucha at Digital Surrey in April?

Inaugural Digital Surrey: April 2010
- we'll need a candle on the cake this year!
UPDATE 25/3: Assuming no-one drops out, we have one spot left!
If you want to pitch your idea for a talk, get in touch

Update 2: We are now have more pitches than we can fit in, many thanks!

(If you've previously said you'd be interested but haven't yet sent your pitch, then this is a last call, sorry!)

By my reckoning it will be Digital Surrey's 1st birthday in April, and what better way to celebrate than with a Pecha Kucha extravaganza!

As announced at our event in January, we're looking for | 1 additional speaker | up to 5 additional speakers to join our 3 "headline acts" | talking about almost anything digital.

The event will happen on Wednesday 20th April (yes, Digital Surrey is temporarily moving from Thursday to accommodate those getting away for Easter or the royal wedding).

The twist: you have exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds to talk, and you must do so to 20 slides, which advance automatically at exactly 20-second intervals!  Other than that the slides and content is up to you.

If you want to know more, I blogged about losing my own Pecha Kucha virginity at Guildford Pecha Kucha Night, we have some speaker notes (pdf), and there's more information on pecha-kucha.org.

Please note we have a couple of house rules:
  • no sales pitches, please!
  • please don't go out of your way to offend our audience.
If you want to pitch your idea for a talk, get in touch. In the event we get more than 5 submissions, we reserve the right to put your pitch to a public vote - please let me know in advance if you are not comfortable with this. (I also reserve the right to block anything that looks likely to break one of our rules.)

The event takes place with the kind support of Simon Strong from Human Zoo, organiser of Guildford Pecha Kucha night, and by prior arrangement with pecha-kucha.org.
