YPN PechaKucha Night

Wednesday, November 1, 2023 (5:00 PM - 9:00 PM) (EDT)


PechaKucha is back and in person for the first time since 2019!

So, what is a PechaKucha Night? PechaKucha Night is an event in which multiple speakers conduct concise and fast-paced presentations. Presenters will have 400 seconds to tell their story, with visuals guiding the way.

This concept was developed in 2003 by an architectural firm in Tokyo as a fun, relaxed way for people to share their work, ideas, and hidden talents, and has since spread to more than 1200 cities world-wide, including Albany!

YPN is hosting PechaKucha in partnership with The Opalka Gallery and Russell Sage College at Brown's Revolution Hall!  Dinner is included.

Join our Emcee for the evening: Brittany Lawton, CEO, Highly Caffeinated Marketing.

Guest Speakers: 

Mara Afzali, Litigation Attorney, U.S. Army Reserve JAG Officer, Aerial Circus Arts Instructor 

Gabby Fisher, Serial Entrepreneur, Micropolitan Matchmakers, & GabbyFisher.biz 

Doug Gruse, GenZ Strategist, Chief Marketing Officer, Empire State University
