RCM Education Conference



Following the success of the last 2 years we are delighted to be inviting submissions from students again for 2019.

What is a Pecha Kucha

Pecha Kucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced. This year we are looking for those experiences that have transformed your learning experience and the quality of midwifery care provided to women and their families.

How to apply

  • Students with RCM membership can apply (you must be a student at the time of the conference)
  • Provide a short abstract no more than 250 words
  • Provide your name, University and which year of your degree you are in
  • Send evidence of support from your course leader or Head of Programme.

Top tips

  • Images are the key to effective Pecha Kucha. Try to find images that are illustrations of your key points. This makes delivery of your presentation much easier, as you’re not trying to race through a list of points. It also makes your presentation more engaging.
  • Practice, practice and practice again. Memorising your key points for each slide is usually the best approach.
  • Write down the 2 key points you want to make for each slide and try to stick to them.
  • If you want to go into depth on one particular slide, repeat the slide and add text or graphics to develop your points is a very graceful way to keep within the format but still go into depth.

You can email your abstract to events@rcm.org.uk. Applications will be accepted from 7 December 2018.
