Bio

I'm an experienced presenter to large and small audiences. In my industry association, the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA), I've been voted one of their top ten instructors of all time. I've successfully sold new products, new technology and new practices. I can teach you to use the same techniques Steve Jobs mastered in his career - how to create spellbinding presentations of anything, from products and services to new business practices.

I'm an experienced presenter to large and small audiences. In my industry association, the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA), I've been voted one of their top ten instructors of all time. I've successfully sold new products, new technology and new practices. I can teach you to use the same techniques Steve Jobs mastered in his career - how to create spellbinding presentations of anything, from products and services to new business practices. You can learn the power of images to reinforce what you say, instead of creating an on screen outline that is guaranteed to bore everyone. You can learn how to rehearse your presentation, so that every step is planned to succeed.

You choose what you need help on. If you’ve been given a presentation you’re stuck with, I can help you succeed despite the slides you’ve been given.

If you've never used presentation software, I can teach you the shortcuts that will make you instantly productive. I can teach you to make engaging presentations with many kinds of software:

Conventional Slide Presentations: PowerPoint for the Mac or the PC, Keynote for the Mac, Note that you don't have to buy software, one of the most compelling apps for presentations is free, it's called Prezi which works for anyone, since it's cloud based.

Page Layout Software: Adobe InDesign or Quark Express - Quark has amazing features for presentations, you can even port your presentation as an iPad app (though that is expensive!).

Word Processing Software: Yes you can create presentations with word processing software, typically as Adobe PDFs in full screen mode. In some cases, the lack of animation and other presentation "effects" might make the presentation cleaner and less distracting. I'm expert in Microsoft Word for the Mac or PC and Pages for the Mac.

Video Editing and Compositing Software: In this age of internet video, even the webcam on your laptop or iPad can create a High Definition video of your presentation. But unless you master the use of professional editing and compositing software, you'll be relegated to a youtube level of quality that is not professional. If you take a few hours with me to study and learn Adobe Premier and After Effects, you can learn how to create the illusion that you are presenting to an audience of hundreds in front of a huge screen.

I'm a patient, friendly and humorous teacher. I will certainly challenge you, but I can save you a lot of hard knocks too.
