Present Like Steve Jobs.

I think I think that he is a wonderful example to learn from, because it speaks a lot about his success with the way he presents and captures the audience. – jar_visss
What goes behind the scenes for all of Steve Jobs' presentations is practice, practice and more practice. Countless of rehearsals are done until he finds that he reaches the point of perfection. This is the type of mentality Steve Jobs carries. A perfectionist in everything that he does. This is partly what makes him so successful. – nathanlepoopoo
Steve Jobs has always been one of my favourite presenters in the way he absolutely captivates his audience, whether those sitting in front of him or behind a computer screen, all the subtle techniques he uses and his immense preparation help to elevate his speeches. – mjauhar97

This video provides quite a clear analysis, giving useful points like creating simple slides that tell a story, is inspiring and can connect with the audience. – iamashton
