Events at UBC Sauder

The Power of Connection, Powered by PechaKucha


Meet UBC alumni who have harnessed their potential to spark meaningful connections.

Experience personal stories of UBC alumni and how connections have impacted their lives – from connection with one’s identity to connection with technology to connection with music. Speakers come from a variety of career paths and personal experiences, including producing orchestral concerts, life coaching, providing equitable access to legal counsel and many more powerful connections. 

Join us virtually for this Powered by PechaKucha event presented by the UBC Sauder School of Business and the Peter A. Allard School of Law. In this style, presenters use exactly 20 slides timed for 20 seconds per slide with a live Q&A session after the presentations – it guarantees a fast-paced, thought-provoking evening. 

This event is open to the global UBC community. Event time is listed in PST.
