I am a technical trainer by trade. After some very disparaging and pointed criticism of my presentation style, I videotaped myself to see if these harsh comments had any merit. The criticisms were dead on! I could barely watch myself. My focus seemed scattered, I kept rambling on and on, and the so called "rapport" that I thought I had with the audience was all in my mind. To top if off, I appeared very nervous, which led to the obvious discomfort of the audience. There were a lot of pained expressions in the audience.

I was pretty distraught. Worse than that, I had another important training presentation in less than a week. I did some hasty internet searches to find some kind of comprehensive public speaking training and lucked upon this DVD. The DVD cover purported to show you "everything you need to know" about how to deliver presentations and keep the audience with you "every step of the way."

I got the 90 minute DVD overnighted to me and watched it as soon as I got it. I was prepared for a lot of the typical public speaking conventions - make eye contact with the audience, etc.

I was prepared to be quite bored by the DVD but was willing to sit through it because I was desperate. Also, I am an insanely compulsive note taker and fully expected to jot down all the useful bits of information I could get as I watched the DVD.

I was wrong on both accounts. I was absolutely riveted by the speaker, Doug Jeffreys. I could see at once that the unconventional but totally sensible techniques he showed were immediately useable. More impressive that that, I didn't have to take any notes. The presentation was so effective that I actually learned by just watching and listening to him. As a trainer, I absolutely aspire to this!

I purchased this dvd for my 16yr old son. He ran for Governor of the Texas-Oklahoma Key Club in April and finished 2nd. Many people approached me saying he was by far the best qualified candidate but the one elected was on the debate team and a good speaker where as my son looked down,stammered and did not come across well. My son then wanted to run for the Key Club International Vice President position that has over 237,000 members in 4,600 schools in all 50 states and 9 foreign countries. I thought it was impossible but agreed if he would use this dvd and learn how to be an effective speaker. He competed in Orlando FL on July 12-15th and won the election. I could not believe my eyes as I saw him speak to a crowd of 1,600 attendees. This dvd transformed him in less than 8 weeks. We recommend this for everyone.

About three years ago, I stumbled upon the Youtube video labeled Killer Presentation Skills. I was looking for something to show my Freshman Composition students before they delivered their one and only required "speech" for my general education class. I hit the jackpot with this video. The quality of my students' 6 to 8 minute presentations skyrocketed. No one used a podium. Everyone was engaged and engaging. One student looked and sounded like he was a professional presenter. I've used the video every class since with amazing results. I thought it was about time I praised Mr. Jeffery's presentation publicly.

I highly recommend this video for anyone who finds themselves in front of an audience, particularly for the business person looking to improve their influence on their colleagues. The real value of this video is that it provides clear, precise actions that any speaker can easily learn and integrate into his or her own presentations.

Although I was not expecting this video to keep my interest for the whole 90 minutes (I really struggle to make it through the training films at work), I found it kept my attention from beginning to end. Mr. Jefferys breaks down the art of speaking well into digestible pieces that are presented in an entertaining enough way as to keep your attention the whole way through.

I found it very valuable to my own business skills - in fact, I got compliments on the very first presentation I gave after watching the DVD, something I had NEVER gotten before. I have no doubt that every business person could improve their own presentation style by incorporating these techniques.

Valuable and entertaining - a great combination.

I am not totally convinced after watching this you will make KILLER PRESENTATIONS. The video is a compilation of many sessions edited (not well) together,in fact at some points it is very distracting.

The presenter gives you techniques to follow, and then he doesn't do them himself, which to me is a bit hypocritical.

It is not the best video on presentation skills, but there are some valid points. I would not recommend this video as "the" video on presentation skills, but take what you can from it.

Douglas Jefferys says that after watching his DVD you will know what 99% of speakers don't know. I put into action the skills he taught in his DVD the next time I spoke to an audience; I have never felt so connected to an audience as I did when I used these skills. I felt connected as I never have before because I was now only focusing on performing the skills that keep an audience interested.

In this DVD Douglas Jefferys explains his presentation skills in a relaxed manner and he gives examples of each of the skills that make them easy to understand.

I learned the three-cornerstones of delivering a speech. Every speech must have all three in order to insure your audience gets what you're telling them.

I learned to focus on using a three-step technique during every moment of a speech. Using these three-steps is what connected me to my audience as I've never experienced before. These three-steps help to assure the audience hears what I am saying without them wandering-off thinking of something else.

This DVD combines Douglas Jefferys giving this same presentation at three different locations in front of three different audiences. You will see him giving a section of the presentation to one-audience for a period of time and then the DVD will switch to another filming location while the same thought is being delivered. This kept my interest in watching the DVD because as the information was seamlessly given, the location kept changing.

Helping you to achieve confident delivery during every moment of a speech is the focus of Douglas Jeffery's DVD.

(I've watched Douglas Jeffery's other DVD called Conquering Death by PowerPoint. This 60-minute DVD gives excellent guidelines to creating PowerPoint presentations that effectively gets your point across to your audience.)
