Everyone who participated got to answer the question however they saw fit, but had to follow one rule: answer in two minutes or less. I had a blast presenting, and really enjoyed all the varied answers. Below, I’m including video of my talk (along with a few favorites).
Tonight, I opted to just tell a story. I had some photos and slides made up, but it just ended up being all of two photos. And while they might have helped, they felt more like a distraction. So I just went all in on the words themselves.
I’m part of 20×2 Chicago this Saturday, a really fun event where 20 folks are gathered together to answer the same question (in 2 minutes or less). The prompt this time: What Did We Miss?
I am always in awe at the participants I get to stand next to at these things. So many creative, talented folks (no seriously, see for yourself). Each show also tends to bring out so many interesting variations, in terms of how each person decides to answer the question.
This felt like cheating, but at the least it was sincere and heartfelt (and better than what I had previously). On paper, it’s kind of a lame proposal. But I feel like it went better in actual execution:
I got to participate again in 20×2 Chicago, an event where 20 creatives get together to answer the same question. Each person can answer the prompt however they like (tell a funny story, sing a song, interpretive dance) with just one rule: you have to do it in two minutes or less.
I’m excited to share once again that I’ll be participating in the super fun, super awesome 20×2 Chicago in a few weeks! The prompt for this event is “Why is it important?” and everyone involved can answer the question however they like… so long as they do it in two minutes or less.
Back in April I participated in 20×2 Chicago, an event where 20 people are given the same question. Each person is free to answer the question however they see fit (slideshow, spoken word, interpretive dance) but the catch is: they need to answer it in two minutes or less.
Tonight’s event had an incredible assortment of styles and approaches: Rubik’s cubes, drawing, Etymology, and a keytar! Looking forward to the video being uploaded, and sharing them on here!
Come join me and 19 other creatives on Friday, for the next installment of 20×2 Chicago! All 20 of us are given the exact same question – this time, the prompt is “Where Do We Start?”
We can choose to answer this question in any way that we want (slideshow, music, video, interpretive dance). The only rule: we have to answer in 2 minutes or less.
I’m excited to share video from that event, where I had the good fortune to kick off the show. While I’ve done a lot of these short talks before – I decided to mix it up a little more this time. My answer to the question “How Does It Work” involved me singing. Well, a few “me’s” singing. It’s a little hard to explain.
After work last Friday, I headed over to the Hideout for 20×2 Chicago. The question for the night was “How Does It Work?” and I was one of the presenters (whose task it was to answer the prompt, in two minutes or less).
The event involves 20 creatives, who are all tasked with answering the same question. The prompt this time is: How Does It Work? Each presenter can go about their answer however they wish: the only catch is they have to do so in two minutes or less.
While I’ve had the good fortune to participate in a lot of 20×2 Chicago events, this week saw a pretty interesting varation. The original folks behind 20×2 (Kevin, Mark, and Jeff) decided to take the show “on tour” and did two back to back events at a new venue: the Virgin hotel in Chicago.
I’m excited for this Friday, when I’ll be participating in a special 20×2 On Tour event in Chicago! It’s a two-night thing, and I’ll be part of the Friday show at a new location: the Upstairs Bar at the Virgin hotel.
