We Need To Talk About Death

On Thursday, 11th April, 2019 I was privileged, delighted and terrified to give a 6 minute 40 second talk at our local Pechakucha evening.  Pechakucha is Japanese for “chit chat” and was developed by people who were sick and tired of long and often boring Conference addresses.  So, the deal is 20 slides at 20 seconds per slide.  My chosen subject WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT DEATH.
