Health Talks’ speakers don’t use presentations full of bullet points. They use the PechaKucha 20×20 format, where each presentation contains 20 photos and each photo is displayed for exactly 20 seconds before automatically advancing to the next one. It’s one of the most popular events of the Forum, with engaging and passionate speakers from all walks of life sharing their hopes for health care in BC:
