Eight speakers for latest PechaKucha
Surviving a kidney transplant, talking to dogs and finding inner strength through hypnotherapy are among the subjects to be presented at PechaKucha tomorrow.
The 23rd edition of the event is due to take place at the Ocean View Golf Course and will feature eight presenters speaking on subjects of their choice.
PechaKucha uses a “20x20” format where 20 images will appear on a big screen for 20 seconds to make sure that presenters keep their talks short and to the point.
The presenters are Mario Gerardino, Jennifer Haworth, Alex Potts, Latisha Lister, Mohamed Hamza, Eileen Thorne, Jennie Lightbourne, and Tony Cerrato. Mr Gerardino’s presentation “The Inner Quest, an Awareness Journey” will explore how people can get a deeper awareness of themselves and heal through hypnotherapy.
Kidney transplant recipient Ms Haworth will talk about maintaining her strength through her illness and afterwards, while Mr Hamza will discuss the need for food and energy security on a small island.
Mr Potts talk is designed to inject some humour with “The Citroën 2CV: not a car, but a way of life!”, a tribute to France’s iconic small car from the legendary car company.
Ms Thorne’s “Conversations with Dogs”, will focus on how talking to dogs can help alleviate bad behaviour and help with training. Ms Lister will speak about her experiences with postnatal depression, while Ms Lightbourne, a clinical pharmacist with ten years experience, will discuss drugs.
Mr Cerrato’s talk “Common Cents” is designed to help people rethink money and its meaning.
The event, which starts at 7.30pm, is free and open to the public but donations will help to repay the generosity of the golf club host.
