A couple of weeks ago, we had an article on PowerPoint and Presentation Tips that focused on livening up your boring bulleted presentations. Reading about presentation techniques is great, but there’s nothing like watching the masters in action. To follow up on those great presentation tips, here are some examples of the pros captivating their audiences.

  • Dick Hardt - I listed this first because the presentation is awesome. Take a few minutes out of your day and check out Dick Hardt in action.

  • Jeffrey Veen - If you haven’t seen Jeffrey Veen speak, you’re missing out. Here you can find the PDF slides and audio file from Veen’s speech on Beyond Usability: Designing the Complete User Experience.

  • Steve Jobs - Watch one of the best speakers out there present at the 2005 Macworld Expo keynote.

  • Guy Kawasaki - Aside from having a great book, the man can speak. The speech starts off a little slow, but Kawasaki picks it up after a few minutes.

  • Takahashi Method - There is no speaker, but here you can find an example of the “Takahashi Method”, which basically means slides consisting of few words in huge font.

    Had the chance to hear Malcolm Gladwell at SxSW 05, and he falls in that category as well.
