Learning from Steve Jobs: SlideRocket webcast

9 December 2009

Yesterday evening I attended a good on-line webcast sponsored by SlideRocket, an on-line presentation building application with an advanced feature set.
It is always good to be reminded of the style and techniques used by Steve Jobs in his great presentations.  I use him as an example for the Effective Presentation training seminars I run.

The presentation was divided into 3 sections:

  • Act 1 – create the story
  • Act 2 – deliver the experience
  • Act 3 – refine and rehearse

During the first section, Carmine Gallo, the presenter and author of the book “The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs”, offered a suggestion which is “Stick to the rule of three”, which he obviously did by dividing his presentation this way.

Below you can find  the slide set from SlideRocket which was used during the presentation. Every slide was created entirely with SlideRocket. Unfortunately it has no audio, but maybe soon the full recording will be available on the SlideRocket site.

I had suggested to the event organizers to allow Skype dial-in for the audio portion of the web-conference, and they arranged a toll-free Skype number which worked very well.  When called in, there were already 40 people connected using the Skype audio conference.

Thank you SlideRocket!

Launch your own SlideRocket presentation!

    Thanks for attending the seminar yesterday and glad you liked the Skype option. We will have an on demand version of Carmine’s presentation in the very near future when we release SlideRocket’s audio recording option (watch the blog next week). This will allow us to provide a much higher quality version than if we recorded via GotoWebinar so we decided to wait. Stay tuned for more upcoming web seminars from SlideRocket, Cliff Atkinson coming in January http://www.sliderocket.com/seminars
