Health Talks

Health Talks: Bold Ideas. Stories that Inspire. was the Quality Forum’s evening event on February 27, 2013. Eight engaging and passionate speakers – representing both health care and the public – answered our question: What are your hopes for health care?

But Health Talks’ speakers didn’t read off cue cards or use PowerPoint presentations full of bullet points. They used the Pecha Kucha format, where each presentation contained 20 slides and each slide was displayed for exactly 20 seconds before automatically advancing to the next one. The slides could only feature photos or videos – no text!

The audience was blown away by the presenters’ diversity and energy. Here are videos of the presentations. Which is your favourite?
