ASAE AM Conversation 6: Pecha Kucha

Maddie Grant and Jeff De Cagna helped us wrap up what we all learned in 3 days in San Diego in a highly interactive session Tuesday afternoon that was based on the Pecha Kucha model.

My Pecha Kucha lessons include:
  • It's all about membership engagement, and engaged members renew, volunteer, give, and evangelize.
  • Fear holds us back from trying new things.
  • If you can change the way you look at the world, you can change the world you're looking at.
  • Control is an illusion of control, and recognizing that makes it a hell of a lot easier to give it up.
  • Once you do, you're open to the possibility of doing extraordinary things.
  • Committee meetings are bullshit - what are you going to DO?
  • No matter how old I get, Philly sports teams will continue to disappoint me.
  • Don't believe your own hype.
  • Don't overschedule yourself.
  • Nothing tastes as good as a jumbo slice at midnight.
  • You can never know in advance what "the" event of the event will be - you can only hope to be lucky enough to be there when it happens.
