By now,  Steve Jobs (of Apple) is probably the role model of presenting, for almost the entire world. I have seen some of his macworld keynote videos, and they are amazing. What it takes, practice, practice, and more practice. Businessweek has a nice write up on how to present like Jobs. The article dissects the show, and lays the key foundations on the table. They are:

  1. set the theme
  2. demonstrate enthusiasm
  3. provide an outline
  4. make numbers meaningful
  5. try for an unforgettable 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.

I love Steve’s slides. They just help him. They do not do the talking. HE does the talking.
