Deliver a Presentation like Steve Jobs

by Carmine Gallo via http://www.businessweek.com/smallbiz/content/jan2008/sb20080125_269732.htm

When Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs kicked off this year’s Macworld Conference & Expo, he once again raised the bar on presentation skills. While most presenters simply convey information, Jobs also inspires. He sells the steak and the sizzle at the same time, as one reader commented a few years ago.

I analyzed his latest presentation and extracted the 10 elements that you can combine to dazzle your own audience. Bear in mind that Jobs has been refining his skills for years. I broke down his 2007 Macworld keynote in a previous column (BusinessWeek.com, 7/6/07) and in a chapter in my latest book. Still, how he actually arrives at what appear to be effortless presentations bears expanding on and explaining again.

1. Set the theme. "There is something in the air today." With those words, Jobs opened Macworld. By doing so, he set the theme for his presentation (BusinessWeek.com, 1/15/08) and hinted at the key product announcement—the ultrathin MacBook Air laptop. Every presentation needs a theme, but you don’t have to deliver it at the start. Last year, Jobs delivered the theme about 20 minutes into his presentation: "Today Apple reinvents the phone." Once you identify your theme, make sure you deliver it several times throughout your presentation.

2. Demonstrate enthusiasm. Jobs shows his passion for computer design. During his presentation he used words like "extraordinary," "amazing," and "cool." When demonstrating a new location feature for the iPhone, Jobs said, "It works pretty doggone well." Most speakers have room to add some flair to their presentations. Remember, your audience wants to be wowed, not put to sleep. Next time you’re crafting or delivering a presentation, think about injecting your own personality into it. If you think a particular feature of your product is "awesome," say it. Most speakers get into presentation mode and feel as though they have to strip the talk of any fun. If you are not enthusiastic about your own products or services, how do you expect your audience to be?

3. Provide an outline. Jobs outlined the presentation by saying, "There are four things I want to talk about today. So let’s get started…" Jobs followed his outline by verbally opening and closing each of the four sections and making clear transitions in between. For example, after revealing several new iPhone features, he said, "The iPhone is not standing still. We keep making it better and better and better. That was the second thing I wanted to talk about today. No. 3 is about iTunes." Make lists and provide your audience with guideposts along the way.

Bangkok Trip 2007

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, the 22nd most populous city in the world. I’ve been to thailand last month with my family for a trip. Bangkok is a  wonderful place with un-understandable spoken and written language.

Suvarnabhumi Airport
The first thing that amazed me right after I landed in Suvarnabhumi Airport is the arrival panel. I had this unusual feeling of seeing non latin characters displaying on a LED Panel.
Thai Airport
There are many plane arriving and departing every hour, every day. This is the worlds 18th busiest airport in 2006.

Gimli Glider

Gimli Glider is the nickname of an Air Canada aircraft which was involved in an infamous aviation incident. On 23 July 1983, a Boeing 767-200 jet, Air Canada Flight 143, ran completely out of fuel at 41,000 feet (12,000m) altitude, about halfway through its flight from Montreal to Edmonton. The crew was able to glide the aircraft safely to an emergency landing at Gimli Industrial Park Airport, a former airbase at Gimli, Manitoba.

The Forward Slip
As they decent nearer towards the airport, it became apparent that they were too high, and Pearson executed a maneuver known as a forward slip to increase their drag and reduce their altitude. This gave passengers the sensation of plummeting sideways toward the ground. As Pearson executed the slip, the aircraft was flying over a golf course, and one passenger reportedly said, "Christ. I can almost see what clubs they’re using". A slip is commonly used with gliders and light aircraft, either to lose height quickly or to execute a cross-wind landing. Such forward-slip maneuvers were sometimes used on small planes and gliders, but were unheard of this was done with a jumbo jet. Forty feet above the ground– mere seconds before contact– Captain Pearson managed to wrestle Flight 143 back to a straight and level approach.

Random Walk: Theory of Stock Prices

The price of a stock is determined by the future profit a company earns.

The current stock price incorporates all the information that is available about future profit as a part of the stock price. What makes a stock price move is new information, which is unpredictable.
