Public Speaking Tips : The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs

The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs

I think it is an awesome video on presentation skills.


Here are some points extracted from the video:

  • Set the theme
  • Make your theme clear and consistent
  • Create a headline that sets the direction for the meeting
  • Provide the outline
  • Open and close each section with a clear transition
  • Make it easy for your listeners to follow your story
  • Demonstrate enthusiasm e.g. extraordinary, amazing, cool, incredible, unbelievable, awesome
  • Wow your audience
  • Sell an experience
  • Make numbers and statistics meaningful
  • Analogies help connect the dots for your audience
  • Make it visual
  • Point a simple picture that doesn’t overwhelm
  • Give ’em a show
  • Identify your memorable moment and build up to it
  • Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse
  • Spend the time to rehearse
  • One more thing…
  • Give your audience an added bonus to walk away with

If you want to overcome stage fright and learn to speak with confidence, join a Toastmasters club.

Mr. Kwong Yue Yang is the 2011 and 2014 World Champion of Public Speaking first runner-up.  He conducted a speaking enhancement workshop in 2012 for the youth in Hong Kong.

The workshop is about communication. How do we communicate better in English? How can we get our ideas across to reach others in a more effective way? Even though the workshop was conducted for secondary school students, I think you should get some really good public speaking tips by watching it.

Check out the live videos from the workshop.
