ATTENDEES AS SPEAKERS
We’re mixing things up AGAIN this year at The Experience.
After a really successful 8 attendee presentations last year, we’re inviting our 2017 attendees to get on stage and into the mix. At ARC we realise there are many talented creatives that attend conferences and we want YOU to have the opportunity to speak and present too.
Always wanted the chance to present?
Sign up to give a Fast-Paced presentation, Pecha Kucha style, at The Experience // ARC.
Not only will you be hearing from our expert lineup of Keynote photographers and our 8 BIG IDEAS, Mini presenters, you too can get up on stage.

THE FAST PACED STYLE
Be the expert for a whole 3 minutes and 45 seconds.
Why 3 mins and 45 seconds? .. Well, here’s how it works.
In this presentation style, 15 slides are shown for 15 seconds each – this means each presentation will not go over 3 minutes and 45 seconds. Short and sweet.
What started in Japan as Pecha Kucha has made it’s way to Vancouver for The Experience // ARC. Organised last year by Hugh Whitaker and Sachin Khona, this style of presentations are meant to offer a fast-paced, speedy info-sharing experience.
This year’s host will be Brian Morrow!

THINKING ABOUT PRESENTING?
Most presenters will show off their creative work, but you’re free to speak about such topics as your personal work and projects.
Maybe you are passionate about your community, shoot some 35mm film on the side at weddings or are an expert in SEO or productivity? Do you dabble in a bit of family photography or print your own work? Are you passionate about photographing concerts or wildlife? Maybe you work closely with a charity and want to tell us about it?
Last years presentations included:
- ‘start somewhere’ by Hugh Whitaker
- ‘collaborations‘ by Rachel Pick
- ‘do you, shooting for yourself’ by Jessica Lee Latone
- ‘accessing your childlike wonder’ by Wendy Shepherd
- ‘celebrating diversity of the human body’ by Jess Petrie
- ‘do nothing’ by Jennifer Armstrong
- ‘skill set utilisation’ by Sam Hugh
If there’s a topic you’re passionate about, or anything else that tickles your fancy, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get the conversation started. Please use the subject ‘Fast Paced Presentations’ and let us know what you have in mind.
ADVICE ON PRESENTING
We’ll soon have a blog post coming up with all the tools and techniques you need on how to best prepare for this Fast Paced style of presenting. With advice from one of our favourite wedding photographers in Canada, Hugh Whitaker!
Hugh has already been through the process of creating a presentation and has a lot of advice to share with you from last year.
Look out for that blog post coming soon …
