Event Description:

Tell Us Your Story
powered by PechaKucha
20 images x 20 seconds

an amazing evening of fast paced talks on professional journeys and entrepreneurship

Join us for Tell Us Your Story, an informal and fun gathering where community and business leaders will share their career stories and entrepreneurial journeys in the PechaKucha 20x20 format. This event is organized by the Lakewood Chamber's Education Task Force and is sponsored by Lakewood Public Library.

Not everyone has had a straight path to the business they own or the position they hold. Many have taken a more circuitous route, building on past experiences to arrive at what might be an entirely different career than originally planned. Enjoy an amazing evening of fast paced talks on professional journeys and entrepreneurship where presenters will tell their stories in the PechaKucha 20x20 format: a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total) and the presenter talks as the images advance automatically. The PechaKucha format keeps presentations concise and fast-paced and powers multiple speaker events regionally and around the world. 'Tell Us Your Story' is the Chamber's second annual 'powered by PechaKucha' event, building on the the success of the 'Lakewood Culture Club' PechaKucha night held in September 2016.

Presenters include:
Yakoob Badat: House Principal, Lakewood High School
Karen Bosworth: Owner, KB Confections
Michael Christoff: Vocon & PechaKucha Night Cleveland
Charity D'Amato-Crawford, Owner, Studio Chartreuse

Judy Grzybowski, Manager, Lakewood Public Library
Tim Hayes, CEO, Cardboard Helicopter
Diane Helbig, Owner, Seize This Day
Jessica Parkison, Owner, Salt+ Cleveland
Mary Ann Stropkay, SVP/Chief Revenue Officer, First Federal Lakewood

“Powered by PechaKucha” events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format.
