As we approach one year of running as a 100% remote company, we reflect on some of the interactions that have kept human connection and the lookthinkmake culture alive during this unusual time. Morning coffee Slack channels and lunch hour virtual trivia games are just a couple of the ways we’ve bonded as a team while being physically apart. One of our favorite activities as a company is the continuation of a long-time LTM tradition that we like to call Pecha Kucha.
Inspired by the very real Pecha Kucha, every year right before the holidays, LTMers gather to give presentations of the highlights of our year. Japanese for “chit-chat,” Pecha Kucha is one of the fastest-growing forms of storytelling in the world. Showing 20 slides with 20 seconds of narration for each, a Pecha Kucha storyteller uses visuals to tell a story, convey a concept, share passions, and more. The possibilities are endless.
So one day out of the year, we pause and reflect. LTMers gather to celebrate the prior 12 months that is distilled into presentations of 12 slides in under 10 minutes, given by each team member. We laugh and we cry, we make jokes and relive the amazing milestones over the last year. Furthermore, we reflect on the things we learned and the fun we’ve had.
This past December was special because we proved to ourselves that the tradition can live on and still be extremely entertaining virtually. We look forward to not only the memories that we’ll create in 2021 but the presentations that will follow!
