Geetesh: Your new book, Winning Strategies for Power Presentations explores presenter personalities -- and their strategies to be convincing and persuasive - tell us more about your book!
Winning Strategies for Power Presentations Jerry: When My new book is essentially a playbook of case studies based on the fundamental principles in my three original books: Presenting to Win: The Art of Telling Your Story, The Power Presenter: Technique, Style, and Strategy, and In the Line of Fire: How to Handle Tough Questions. Taken together, the three offer a proven methodology to develop all the essential elements in any presentation: how to develop a crisp, clear and compelling narrative supported by simple PowerPoint slides; how to deliver that presentation with poise, assurance, and confidence; and how to control Q&A sessions. The case studies in my new book are from fields of communication beyond presentations such as books, films, politics, advertising, music, and sports The common elements in these fields, demonstrate the universal aspects of presentations.
Geetesh: The presenters profiled in this book including people alive and also others whom we only know through their books or recordings -- how did you choose the 75 personalities for this book -- what sets them apart?
Jerry: I chose a variety of communicators and writers who have eloquently expressed basic concepts that illustrate the fundamental principles of my presentation methodology.
