There are so many ways you can help make a difference in the lives of patients and families today.
PechaKucha (Japanese for “chit chat”) is the world’s fastest-growing storytelling platform, used by millions around the globe and we want to bring this unique presentation style to our community.
Throughout the year, we have posted PechaKucha presentations created by various staff members, as seen below, leading up to a LIVE PechaKucha event we will be hosting on Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022, and we want to inspire YOU to create and participate in our event this fall.
We look forward to seeing you online.

A Cool Presentation Format
PechaKucha is the ideal tool to share passions or drop some knowledge and has two cool formats to choose from when designing your own:
🎤 20 x 20: The classic PechaKucha presentation is 20 slides. 20 seconds of commentary per slide. This gives the presenter 6 minutes and 40 seconds to present.
🎤 10 x 20: This format is considered a nugget of information: 10 slides. 20 seconds of commentary per slide. This gives the presenter 3 minutes and 20 seconds to present.
So, what does PechaKucha have to do with Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada?
With so many virtual events happening now we want to design and create engaging virtual events for our community. This will also be an opportunity to:
🎤 Learn more about who’s who behind the work we do at Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
🎤 Encourage you – survivors, caregivers, health care professionals, donors and volunteers and anyone else connected to our community the opportunity to share more about who you are, what you are passionate about or a cool project you’ve worked on. The topics are limitless.
