    Featuring: Terry Pearce

    Program Highlights
  • Reaching both the minds and the hearts of an audience.
  • Using your voice to inspire others to take committed action.
  • The power of authenticity-how conviction creates clarity.

    Today's leaders must connect with their audiences in substantive ways that go far beyond the giving of information. Leaders must be able to motivate audiences to commitment, not merely to compliance. Terry Pearce explores and demonstrates ways in which a leader can elevate a speech into a more powerful and ultimately productive experience-for the speaker as well as for the listener.

    Pearce explains three rules that together set the stage for consistently powerful presentations: speak on topics you really care about, incorporate personal experiences that have contributed to your conviction, and structure your speech as a story. With these guidelines, you'll convey context as well as content. You'll transmit meanings instead of words. And you'll challenge and engage your audience, creating common goals and a shared vision.

    Terry Pearce is a veteran business executive and a lecturer at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley. In 2000, Pearce co-authored "Clicks and Mortar... Passion-Driven Growth in an Internet-Driven World." Pearce's first book, "Leading Out Loud," was honored by Executive Summaries as "one of the best books on speaking ever written."

    "How to deliver your next presentation to any size audience and keep them with you every step of the way"

    "A pre-requisite for any serious career"

    Killer Presentation Skills is a 90-minute video that will change forever the way you think about speaking in public.

    Although speaking to a group is reported to be the Number 1 human fear, the truth is a bit more nuanced. The presenter in this video, author, speaker and trainer Doug Jefferys, clearly demonstrates that we only BELIEVE we fear public speaking because our most common behaviors when in the spotlight produce exactly the same physiological responses as when we are genuinely facing a life-threatening event. In other words, whenever our brain senses a potential threat, in this case the classic scenario of finding ourselves "one against many", the body responds with the same chemical preparations to deal with the "threat" as it does when you blowout a tire at 70 MPH.

    Then, because of what most of us have been taught from an early age, we engage in behaviors that exacerbate this chemical surge. We become our own worst enemy. Not because we're weak, or think negatively, or are not prepared, as most of the "wisdom" out there would have us believe. Rather, because we come to the front of the room carrying a huge load of unavoidable baggage and then commit actions that the body has no choice to respond to other than to "crank us up".

    The amazingly good news here is that this video shows you how, by simply changing a few of these wrongly taught behaviors, you can completely change your body's response; and with very little practice, the fear is first lessened, and then it is gone.

    No drugs, no self-hypnosis, no fuzzy neuro-reprogramming, no reliance on "positive thinking" exercises that fail at the worst time. The process that takes you from a speaking zero to a speaking hero is one that simply involves modifying three things that you've done since your first stand-up book report in grade school. But beware: the power that comes with this new-found comfort and confidence can be intoxicating - and it's available to literally anyone who learns the technique and runs with it.

    Although the presenter's approach runs counter to almost everything most people have read or learned about being successful at public speaking, his firm has taught thousands of participants who claim his techniques have literally changed their lives. Former president Bill Clinton, who is still regarded as the pre-eminent speaker in public life today, studied and embraced these very same techniques when running for president - to obviously great personal benefit. You may not become president of the United States, but wouldn't it be nice if the next time you spoke, people actually listened?

  • "Loved the concept that 'people only start listening when you STOP talking'. Never thought about it before, but you're SO right. And what a great technique you have for learning how to do that! I literally can't wait for my next presentation" - Michele Taylor, Amazon Review

    "How to stop killing your clients with PowerPoint Poisoning and deliver presentations that provoke and persuade"

    Wouldn't it be great if when you presented, people actually listened?

    Microsoft claims there are over 30 million PowerPoint presentations given every business day. What they don't say is that most of those presentations never accomplish what their presenters set out to do - that is, achieve true knowledge transfer. In fact, rather than engage audience members in the point at hand, most presentations send listeners off on "journeys of self-discovery" as they desperately try to figure out for themselves what all those convoluted images up on the screen are supposed to mean.

    As the audience drifts off, the speaker invariably reads this disconnect as a failure of his delivery skills, and anxiety builds. Credibility falters, and the message is lost.

    It doesn't have to be this way.

    Conquering Death by PowerPoint is the definitive video on modern presentation design, written and performed by one person who has been developing computer-based on-screen presentations since the beginning of the personal computer era, and long before Windows or PowerPoint.

    J. Douglas Jefferys' volume encompasses both presentation design and delivery, based on his 25 years experience as a corporate trainer, professional speaker, and presentation developer. Mr. Jefferys leaves no doubt that there is an inextricable relationship between design and delivery, and that you can't do either well without a good understanding of the other.

    Audiences will be delighted to know that this is a take-it-home-and-use-it-in-business-tomorrow class of book. Everything that Mr. Jefferys brings forth in this often entertaining discourse applies to the presentation you're working on right now. The video is structured around “The Seven Basic Rules” of presentation design, and before Jefferys tells you what to do, he tells you why.

    In the penultimate chapter, Jefferys takes square aim at the illustrious Dr. Edward Tufte, considered in many circles to be the pre-eminent guru on visualizing information, and who has spent much of this century writing and lecturing on the “dangers” of using PowerPoint in scholastic, scientific or other "serious" environments.

    Yet by offering an amazingly clear and easily understood alternative design to the infamous "Boeing" slide, considered by Tufte to be proof that PowerPoint killed the seven Columbia astronauts, the author irrefutably demonstrates that properly constructed slides actually can deliver exactly the intended message, and that the only danger is the lack of training most people receive before being taxed to design and give consequential presentations.

    This beautifully produced 1-hour video, guaranteed to keep you visually stimulated with its 12 magnificently crafted virtual sets, will not only change forever the way you view presentation design and delivery, it delivers the tools you need to make those changes now. Follow these rules, and you will save your next audience from “Death by PowerPoint”.

  • "I've been giving financial presentations for my firm for over 10 years and thought I knew it all. Boy, did this video open my eyes!'

    Starting with a whole new take on what really constitutes proper eye-contact, Jefferys then takes you step-by-step through a set of fairly easy to follow rules about what you can and can't put into your slides. I redid my main presentation according to the Rules, delivered it with his techniques on audience contact, and first time out got the greatest reception of my public speaking career.

    I can't imagine anyone in business who couldn't severely benefit from the lessons here." - James Gallagher, Financial Consultant from Amazon.com
