WHAT WOULD
STEVE DO
               ?
10 lessons from the world’s
most captivating presenters
Steve Jobs delivered
some of the most
awe-inspiring,
memorable
keynote presentations
in history.
Scott Harrison’s remarkable
presentations have helped
raise $75,000,000
for charity: water in six years.
The typical Gary Vaynerchuk presentation
features over 100 four-letter words,
ZERO slides & at least one
standing ovation.
Sadly, your presentations are not awe-inspiring;
they’re yawn-inspiring.
Yawn-inspiring presentations
don’t sell products.
Awe-inspiring presentations
can move mountains.
Let the world’s
most captivating
presenters
teach you
how to
move mountains.
Let the world’s

Let the world’s

    Or sell products. Or both.
TIP #1

Craft a story that captures
both heart & mind.
Humans have been telling stories for thousands of years.
We don’t live our lives in
bullet points.
•    I was born in the Ukraine in 1972.
•    My family left the Soviet Union in 1975.
•    In 1980, my brother Andrew was born (in the U.S.).
•    I won my first school Spelling Bee in 1981.
•    I graduated from high school in 1990.
•    I graduated from college in 1994.
•    Recently, I turned 41
We live our lives in images & stories.
A story has a beginning, a middle & an end.
A story has a beginning, a middle & an end.

         Little Red Riding Hood gets lost
         on her way to Grandma’s house.
A story has a beginning, a middle & an end.

                 Little Red Riding Hood is fooled into thinking
                 that the Big Bad Wolf is her grandmother!
Little Red Riding Hood escapes the cunning
                        wolf’s clutches. She never wanders alone in
                              the woods by Grandma’s house again.



A story has a beginning, a middle & an end.
A presentation
is a visual story.
Movies are also
visual stories.
Filmmakers don’t make
movies without a script.

Emotions make stories stick.
They’re like neon signs telling your brain,
“REMEMBER THIS!”
When emotions are triggered,
dopamine floods the brain.
Logic doesn’t flood the brain with dopamine,
which is why logic alone doesn’t
move mountains.

“1000 songs in your pocket.”
               
simple. 
                                jargon. 

“1000 songs in your pocket.”
   “Today we’re introducing a new, portable music player
               
                that weighs a mere 6.5 ounces, is about the size of a
                                sardine can, and boasts voluminous capacity, long
                                battery life, and lightning-fast transfer speeds.”
                                 
TIP #6

USE METAPHORS
TO GIVE MEANING.
“	
  
    What a computer is to me is
    the most remarkable tool
    that we have ever come up with.
    It’s the equivalent of
    a bicycle for our minds.
