About Jerry Weissman:
Jerry Weissman is the world's number one corporate presentations coach. His private client list reads like a who's who of the world's best companies, including the top brass at Yahoo!, Intel, Intuit, Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Netflix, Dolby Labs, eBay and many others.
Mr. Weissman founded Power Presentations, Ltd. in 1988. One of his earliest efforts was the Cisco Systems IPO road show. Following its successful launch, Don Valentine, of Sequoia Capital, and then chairman of Cisco's Board of Directors, attributed "at least two to three dollars" of the offering price to Mr. Weissman's coaching.
Mr. Weissman's focus widened from coaching IPOs to include public and privately held companies. His techniques have helped another 500 plus firms develop and deliver their presentations.
Mr. Weissman is also the author of four business books: Presenting to Win:The Art of Telling Your Story; The Power Presenter: Technique, Style, and Strategy from America's Top Speaking Coach; In the Line of Fire: How to Handle Tough Questions; and Presentations in Action: 80 Memorable Presentation Lessons from the Masters.
As a prelude to Power Presentations, Mr. Weissman had an extensive career in television as a producer of public affairs programs, including three years at the Network for continuing Medical Education, and a decade at WCBS-TV, the flagship station of the CBS Television Network in New York.
In 1980, Pinnacle Books published Mr. Weissman's novel The Zodiac Killer.
Mr. Weissman has a BA degree from New York University, and an MA in Speech and Drama from Stanford University.
