Join SMPS Columbus for a fresh perspective on the Project Pursuit Lifecycle. We’ll provide insight, tips, and techniques for perfecting your pursuit process through pecha kucha style presentations. 

What’s pecha kucha? We’re glad you asked!

Pecha kucha is a dynamic, concise, and fast-paced style of presentation first created in Tokyo in 2003. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for “chit-chat”, it was developed as a way for young designers to introduce their work to the public. Each presentation is approximately 20 slides for 20 seconds per slide, so no presentation is more than 7 minutes!

Our line-up features a bevy of BD/Marketing professional from the Columbus Chapter who will give their unique spin on the steps of project pursuit. We guarantee you’ve never seen A/E/C business development or marketing this way before!
