I would place Steve Jobs way up there in my list of powerful public speakers. I think Steve is somebody well worth study because his presentations are so powerful because of how much hard work he puts in to making them that great.
Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan and Barrack Obama are great speakers but somehow less useful to us mere mortals to study because such a huge part of their power comes from their intrinsic charisma – and it is extremely difficult for you or me to just become as charismatic as Barrack, Bill or Ronald by following a set of instructions.
I would like to credit Sticky Slides, the blog of Jan Schultink for the link to this presentation.
Those of you viewing via subcription/RSS feeds may need to view the original post here.
And for a bonus, one of the greatest ever speeches (IMHO): here is a link to Ronald Reagan’s speech on the Challenger space shuttle disaster.
