BCWWA Young Professionals Present:

Fresh Ideas

Date: May 4, 2014
Location: Whistler Conference Centre

This year BCWWA Young Professionals have decided make the Annual Conference poster board competition come alive with “ Fresh Ideas”, a Pecha Kucha style short-presentation competition.

It is fitting that the youngest group of BCWWA-ers are interested in leading edge innovation in the water industry, but also in leading edge presentation styles. Pecha Kucha is the Japanese term for the sound of conversation or “chit-chat”. This style of presentations requires speakers to a format of 20 slides, on display for 20 seconds giving presenters 6 minutes and 40 seconds. 

Eight big new ideas into under 7 minutes! Can it really be done?
