Deliver a presentation like Steve Jobs
The January 25, 2008 issue of BusinessWeek had a delightful article "Deliver a Presentation like Steve Jobs" that I thought you would enjoy. There, Carmine Gallo, the article's author, notes a 10-part framework that you might find useful when you are called upon to give an inspiring presentation:
1. Set the theme.
2. Demonstrate enthusiasm.
3. Provide an outline.
4. Make numbers meaningful.
5. Try for an unforgetable moment.
6. Create visual slides.
7. Give 'em a show.
8. Don't sweat the small stuff.
9. Sell the benefit.
10. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse.
Good points for each of us to keep in mind when we put that important presentation together.
