One of the highlights of Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2014 were the PechaKucha sessions.
A format in which you have 20 slides each of which is displayed for 20 seconds and then automatically forwarded, it's a quickfire and humorous way of making a presentation.
In Helsinki, we had eight speakers on the following subjects.
- "The History of My Mobile Games", Tommy Palm, games guru, King
- "Free-To-Play", Ville Heijari, head of supply, Europe, Vungle
- "Keeping the Player", Mark Sorrell, F2P independent consultant
- "20 Memorable Moments with Games", Rob Hearn, editor-in-chief, Pocket Gamer
- "Guide on how to be super hero", Parker Crockford, chief operating officer, Playmob
- "20 Reasons Why It's Your Players' Game... Not Yours!" Oscar Clark, evangelist, Everyplay & independent game design and monetisation consultant
- "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly in Mobile Marketing", Pepe Agell, head of international, Chartboost
You can check out the video of the presentations below.
But, of course, this is so much ancient history.
Instead what organiser Wilhelm Taht, tribe leader of external products at Rovio, is now considering is Pocket Gamer Connects London 2015.
And he's looking for people who can make a funny and informative speech in 6 minutes 40 seconds.
Old timers Pepe Agell, Oscar Clark, Ville Heijari and Mark Sorrell are already onboard, with the potential of an embarrassing debut from a certain PocketGamer.biz editor-at-large.
