Pecha-kucha presentation on emotionally intelligent signage

Pecha-kucha presentation on emotionally intelligent signage from Daniel Pink on Vimeo.

In the video above, Daniel Pink uses Pecha-kucha to present on emotionally intelligent signage. 

PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. This means that you can give your presentation is under seven minutes.

Two architects, Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture, invented the format in Tokyo, Japan because they thought that architects talked too much. You can read more FAQs and watch presentations at

Daniel Pink reminds us that emotionally intelligent signage should be clear, understandable, and direct. It should demonstrate empathy and encourage empathy.

Every manager should improve signage! Look around and find a sign that needs improvement. Who is the sign for? What impact will the sign have on everyone else? What does the sign sound like when you read it aloud? Make the sign clearer, more understandable, and direct.

Now, improve the sign!
