Could The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs reinforce your communications skills, iWonder? This Tuesday evening at $timulus we look at how author Carmine Gallo has scrutinized the dynamics of how Steve Jobs drives presentations. Whether uLove him or uHate him you cannot iGnore him. Woven within the eyeball-locking, brain-hijacking and celebrity worshipped warlockery is a magical potion of secrets that can benefit your power message, resume/cover letter objectives, positioning statements, and your sales and entrepreneurial brandings. Clearly an iMust read!

iNsights on Steve from Monte:

  •  iPander and iGive you give you exactly what you came for
  • iRecruit and iPamper my followers and draw them close
  • iPromise still, that this is an ongoing quest and more is to come
  • iChallenge the status quo at every step of the way
  • iConflict with my competitors when iDeem it pertinent
  • iWork gleamingly through issues and setbacks
  • iRally, all of you, to join the grand quest and be part
  • iStop, iPause, iPonder, and iContemplate and when I do so do you
  • iWander about on stage and your eyes and your mind follows me, and only me
  • When very frugally iSlide a or iVideo you pay rapt attention
  • iCharm and iHumor, but I don’t tell jokes
  • iTeam with others knowing their strengths and keeping it fresh
  • iRaise a hero to the vanguard that you iDentify with
  • iShow in a way that is guaranteed to get press, buzz, tweets and whuffie
  • iSpeak in a way so as to abolish all possible geek-speak, business babble and jargon
  • iHate bullets because iBore
  • iClarify rather where and how more detail is available
  • iDeliver with shorter-than-most spiels and take frequent short intermissions so that content can be digested and talked about
  • iCare and the zeal, passion and exuberance electrifies on a physical and psychic level
  • iSparkle, iDazzle, iPace and iEnthrall with a highly practiced perfection that demands attention
  • Lastly, iCreate, iLaunch, iSell, and iShip
  • Do you?
