Doug Jefferys' diverse background includes the automotive industry, manufacturing, global marketing & information technology. A Microsoft Certified Professional and Certified PowerPoint Expert, Doug began his platform-training career inJ. Douglas Jefferys - Public Speaking Skills 1981 with Commodore Business Machines.

At Commodore, Doug was challenged to present what was then a hobbyist's concept - the PC - as a viable new consumer product. To best showcase features and functionality, Doug learned BASIC and built from scratch what is now acknowledged to be the first computer-based on-screen presentation.

Years before Windows, Doug was helping to create the ground rules for successful computer-based presentation techniques. Today, in addition to training tens of thousands of satisfied participants in proper public speaking skills, Doug continues to develop and edit dynamic on-screen presentations for top executives at many Fortune 500 companies.

One of Doug’s greatest skills is helping people build confidence in just being themselves when speaking to a group. With a coaching style that is based on straight talk and proper doses of humor, Doug is known for getting participants to freely give their maximum in a non-intimidating way. Introverted types often comment that their sessions were the first time they felt good talking to people’s faces instead of to their shoes!

Doug's latest book, Killer Presentation Skills published in November 2011, and in addition to his contrarian approach to public speaking training, it includes extensive chapters on presentation design and handling tough questions – everything a great presenter needs to know. His previous work...And Your Point Is? - How to Stop Killing Your Clients with PowerPoint Poisoning, is an entertaining look at the state of business presentations today, and what you can do to improve the breed. It is also a great primer on one of Doug's passions, namely good design.

Doug has also produced and stars in two popular feature length DVD’s. Conquering Death by PowerPoint teaches the 7 Basic Rules of Visual Design, and demonstrates quite clearly how to craft slides that deliver your message the first time, unequivocally. And the Amazon.com Number 1 Best Seller on the topic, 90 Minutes to Killer Presentation Skills, is now in its Second Edition. The YouTube trailers have been viewed over 2,250,000 times.

Doug is a sometime contributor to the Wall Street Journal.
