Great Presentations Online

The experts in action:

Is There Life After Death by PowerPoint? (4min)
Very funny look at major PowerPoint mistakes. A quick one to warm you up.

TED Talks: Sir Ken Robinson: Do Schools Kill Creativity? (20 min)
There are a lot of fantastic talks at this website but this one is my favorite. His pace and use of humour is brilliant. This is as good as it gets.

Steve Jobs: Keynote Address 2006 (1h12 min)
No list of great presenters is complete without including Steve Jobs of Apple. This is a guy who is known to spend a LOT of time ensuring that everything is just right. He is the gold standard for minimalist use of slides. Just about any presentation he gives is amazing. I like this one for demonstrating excellent use of visuals... plus he demos great slide producing software.

Guy Kawasaki: The Art of Innovation (54 min)
Kawasaki, IT venture capitalist and presentation guru is famous for his role as Apple evangelist as well as the great 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint.

Randy Pausche's Last Lecture (1h25min)
This is probably the most moving lecture you will ever have the privilege to see.

Harvard Business School Public Speaking Contest 2006

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3
Excellent use of humour. Will be particularly amusing to bankers...

And while we're on the subject...
An excellent resource for aspiring presenters: Presentation Zen
