Fulbright NY/MAD Innovation Salon:
Innovative Ideas on International Exchange and Development



Produced and spoke at the Fulbright NY/MAD Innovation Salon, a joint event between the Greater New York Chapter of the Fulbright Association and McKinsey & Company Alumni (MAD). The Innovation Salon focused on innovative ideas on International Exchange and Development, and the presentations were based on the “Pecha Kucha” format of 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide. Quickfire presentation events like these have been wildly successful in NY as well as many other cities in the world, and popular events like Ignite have spawned. The 20 slides/20 seconds format is challenging but is also an amazing jumping off point for airing new, innovative ideas.
