Every slide is written like a piece of poetry.
Each presentation is delivered like a theatrical performance.
Carmine Gallo has written a book called The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs and here is her ABC interview followed by my favorite tips about making a knockout presentation like Steve Jobs.
My Favorites: How to Make a Presentation Like Steve Jobs
- Introduce an Antogonist. Because every great drama has a hero and a villian. With an antogonist we can uniquely frame a problem that set up a solution.
- Create Twitter-Friendly Headlines. Everyone should have 1 sentence that frames a product or business and this sentence should commuicate the vision behind the product or business.
- Sell Dreams, Not Products. Steve Jobs sells transformative experiences. So figure out, what IS it about a product or business that will change or improve lives?
- Practice Zen Like Simplicity. This is my ABSOLUTE favorite. Eliminate clutter. Knock their socks off.
