Absolutely Fantastic!

My work requires I speak frequently using PPT all the time.

After purchasing this DVD I now know why my audience [used to pull] out their PDA's 5 minutes into my talk.

After implimenting the physical/ mental and design recommendations in just my first new presentation, I was able to generate $30,000 in additional revenue. I have no doubt this was the result of the changes I made to my presentation that I learned form this DVD.

I highly reccommend you buy and use this.

From Publisher's Weekly:

Microsoft claims that there are over 30 million PowerPoint presentations given every business day. What they don't say is that most of those presentations never accomplish what their presenters set out to do - that is, achieve true knowledge transfer. In fact, rather than engage audience members in the point at hand, most presentations send listeners off on "journeys of self-discovery" as they desparately try to figure out for themselves what all those convoluted images up on the screen are supposed to mean.

As the audience drifts off, the speaker invariably reads this disconnect as a failure of his delivery skills, and anxiety builds. Credibiity faulters, and the message is lost.

In this very enlightening and entertaining 60-minute program, you will learn the Seven Rules of visual design and come away with the abiity to develop presentations that will keep your audiences with you every step of the way.

With real-life (and -death!) examples, you will clearly see the difference between what works and what doesn't on the big screen, and save the day for your very next audience.

 "I've been giving financial presentations for my firm for over 10 years and thought I knew it all.  Boy, did this video open my eyes!'

Starting with a whole new take on what really constitutes proper eye-contact, Jefferys then takes you step-by-step through a set of fairly easy to follow rules about what you can and can't put into your slides. 

I redid my main presentation according to the Rules, used his eye-contact tecniques, and the first time out got the greatest reception of my public speaking career."

Wouldn’t it be great if when you presented, people actually listened?

                 

Microsoft claims there are over 30 million PowerPoint presentations given every business day.  What they don't say is that most of those presentations never accomplish what their presenters set out to do - that is, achieve true knowledge transfer.  In fact, rather than engage audience members in the point at hand, most presentations send listeners off on "journeys of self-discovery" as they desperately try to figure out for themselves what all those convoluted images up on the screen are supposed to mean.

As the audience drifts off, the speaker invariably reads this disconnect as a failure of his delivery skills, and anxiety builds. Credibility falters, and the message is lost.

It doesn't have to be this way.


Conquering Death by PowerPoint is the definitive video on modern presentation design, written and performed by one person who has been developing computer-based on-screen presentations since the beginning of the personal computer era, and long before Windows or PowerPoint. 

 

J. Douglas Jefferys’ volume encompasses both presentation design and delivery, based on his 30 years experience as a corporate trainer, professional speaker, and presentation developer. Mr. Jefferys leaves no doubt that there is an inextricable relationship between design and delivery, and that you can’t do either well without a good understanding of the other. 

                         

Audiences will be delighted to know that this is a take-it-home-and-use-it-tomorrow class book . Everything that Mr. Jefferys brings forth in this often entertaining discourse applies to the presentation you’re working on right now. The video is structured around “The Seven Basic Rules” of presentation design, and before Jefferys tells you what to do, he tells you why. 

In the penultimate chapter, Jefferys takes square aim at the illustrious Dr. Edward Tufte, considered in many circles to be the pre-eminent guru on visualizing information, and who has spent much of this century writing and lecturing on the “dangers” of using PowerPoint in scholastic, scientific or other “serious” environments. 

 

Yet by offering an amazingly clear and easily understood alternative design to the infamous “Boeing” slide, considered by Tufte to be proof that PowerPoint killed the seven Columbia astronauts, the author irrefutably demonstrates that properly constructed slides actually can deliver exactly the intended message, and that the only danger is the lack of training most people receive before being taxed to design and give consequential presentations.

                      

This beautifully produced 1-hour video, guaranteed to keep you visually stimulated with its 12 magnificently crafted virtual sets, will not only change forever the way you view presentation design and delivery, it delivers the tools you need to make those changes now.  Follow these rules, and you will save your next audience from “Death by PowerPoint”.

  An Important Note:    

  

"Daaaaaddd!  My computer won't wake up!"

There has been much concern lately – most of it well-founded – about security breaches occurring in home and office computers resulting from the playing of popular downloaded videos or purchased DVDs.  You need to be aware, if you value the security of your computer data, that many videos available on the market today do contain malicious files; from simple adware and malware to virus re-transmitters (where your computer is used to spread viruses to hundreds or even thousands of other computers), and finally root-eating viruses that render your computer inoperable, even though your files may still exist in a non-readable directory.

Without delving into the technical aspects of how this all occurs, suffice it to say that [new] DVDs purchased from known, national distributors (e.g., Warner Bros., McGraw-Hill, Amazon.com, and even smaller direct publishers such as Dale Carnegie or PublicSpeakingSkills.com) are manufactured in such a way as to prevent the inclusion of any files other than those necessary to play and index the video.

Simply put, the only way you can be sure your computer will be safe to run after playing a DVD or any full-length video is to purchase a new disc or download from a reputable source, period.  Please enjoy our DVDs (manufactured by Amazon) and downloads with confidence.
