Back by popular demand Phil Coffey of Coffey Architects will chair our 2018 PechaKucha, an exciting and inspiring presentation format with presenters showing 20 images, each for 20 seconds. PechaKucha draws its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it provides a lively, informal and fun format enjoyed by a huge audience. 

In keeping with the style of PechaKucha, attendees are provided with a free beer or wine as they relax to watch the action.

This year's PechaKucha theme for our multi-talented group of presenters is:
