  • I want to thank you for putting on one of the best trainings I’ve had over my 30+ year career. What made it so good for me was your enthusiasm for your craft! I will be certain to take the skills I’ve learned to improve and enhance my face to face meetings with my customers. It’s no wonder why the Huffington Post calls you the world’s number one presentation coach!

    Don Corey

    Principal Member of Technical Staff, Maxim Integrated

  • Jerry Weissman is a true master of his craft. His coaching not only changed the way we think about our presentations, but has provided us with valuable tools which will allow us to communicate clear and powerful messages going forward.

    Ziv Aviram

    Co-founder, President and CEO, Mobileye

  • MobileIron’s business is growing rapidly and we needed to take our presentation skills as a management team to the next level. Jerry Weissman’s program did that for us. Jerry’s approach reaches into your brain and fundamentally changes how you approach delivering presentations and answering questions. Jerry’s approach is transformative yet practical and, in retrospect, simple. You don’t know how much better you can be until you go through it. I continue to use the skills I learned almost every day. They’ve become a part of who I am and how I communicate.

    Bob Tinker

    CEO, MobileIron, Inc.

  • Cisco originally expected to get $13.50 to $15.50 per share for its stock. “But during the road show the company was so well-received” that it managed to sell 2.8 million shares at $18 apiece, Valentine [chairman of the Board of Cisco Systems] said. He attributed “at least $2 to $3″ of the increase to Weissman’s coaching.

    Don Valentine

    As quoted by San Francisco Chronicle, July 9, 1990

  • Jerry was highly influential in every aspect of our IPO road show, but his impact extends well beyond that presentation and is part our day-to-day lives as executives.

    Brian Cooper

    Executive Vice President & CFO, Everyday Health, Inc.

  • Jerry’s workshop was the most useful presentation workshop I have ever attended. Jerry has a great approach to presentations that has made a significant difference in the way I present.  I truly learned more than I expected.

    Deborah Donaldson

    MBA Candidate 2015, Stanford Graduate School of Business

  • Jerry’s training sessions and techniques were invaluable as we prepared for Opower’s IPO. He helped us navigate a completely foreign process, and enabled us to communicate our company mission in a clear and compelling way. His insights will stay with me as we move forward as a public company.

    Daniel Yates

    CEO and Founder, Opower, Inc.

  • I enjoyed working with Jerry as we prepared for our IPO roadshow. He has an approach that is focused on presentation fundamentals combined with opportunities to practice, review, and improve. I can confidently say that working with Jerry improved my presentation skills and elevated the overall quality of our presentation.

    Dave Krupinski

    Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer,, Inc.

  • Jerry Weissman’s genius is getting successful leaders like me to realize we are imbeciles when it comes to effective communication that is not email.  In particular, Jerry broadens one’s perspective on how to use the visual well, how to focus on the audience’s perspective and on how to keep the narrative strong and compelling.  I benefited from Jerry’s work way back in 1995 for my first IPO, and then went back again in 2002 for my second IPO—in both cases his teaching added tremendous clarity to our investor presentations.  Not only should IPO-bound CEOs read this book, but everyone who does presentations should absorb its messages. 

    Reed Hastings

    Founder and CEO, Netflix, Inc.

  • I’ve been asking tough questions for half a century and listening to variously brilliant, boring, evasive or illuminating answers.  Jerry Weissman’s book will help anyone…anyone…answer even the toughest questions.

    Mike Wallace

    Former Senior Correspondent, Sixty Minutes, CBS News

  • Have you ever been faced with a tough question?  Jerry Weissman shows how it’s not necessarily what the answer is.  It’s how you answer that will allow you to prevail and win!

    Tim Koogle

    Former President and CEO, Yahoo! Inc.

  • In my role at Cisco Systems, I am confronted with challenging questions from customers, government leaders, press, and analysts on a daily basis.  The techniques used in this book, In the Line of Fire, are spot on; providing straightforward ways to be on the offense in all communications situations.

    Sue Bostrom

    Former Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, Worldwide Government Affairs, Cisco Systems, Inc.

  • If you want to have a successful roadshow, call Jerry—because you want him on your team.  Jerry is a master at his trade.  His training sessions and workshop were invaluable and his approach to training is both humbling and encouraging.  He not only prepares you for the roadshow, but also for being a public company.  Today as we prepare for meetings with investors we still refer back to what we learned from the roadshow training.

    Sean Aggarwal

    CFO, Trulia, Inc.

  • Jerry’s IPO course covers everything that you and your team will need to be fully prepared for every investor situation you will encounter during your IPO road show.  I would not consider doing a road show without spending a few days with Jerry learning his proven methods for successful investor presentations.  Both my CFO and I thought the time was an excellent investment.

    Chris Lien

    CEO, Marin Software, Inc.

  • As one of the key advisors in preparing for our IPO, Jerry’s coaching mattered, was applied, and worked.  We were well prepared (we met over 150 investors in 11 cities) and had a great road show.  With Jerry’s help, we were able to talk about the Control4 opportunity and business as well as answer questions in a way that resonated with investors, which helped us start building the book from the first day and culminated in our offering being well oversubscribed by pricing-day.

    Martin Plaehn

    President & CEO, Control4 Corporation

  • One of Pantheon’s client-facing professionals took Jerry’s Power Presentations program.  The next day, armed with her Opening Gambit, Roman Columns, and WIIFYs, she flew to Chicago for a meeting with a public pension fund.  She nailed her presentation and raised $160 million!  Now we have all of our  client-facing professionals attend Jerry’s course!

    Kevin K. Albert

    Managing Director, Pantheon Ventures (US) LP

  • Jerry’s coaching has been invaluable for many of our c-suite clients as they prepare for their debut or return to the public markets.  His high-impact presentation approach has been tremendously successful.  In addition, Jerry’s book series that detail his differentiating concepts have been incredibly instructive.

    Michael Millman

    Managing Director, Equity Capital Markets, J.P. Morgan

  • Eighty Presentations Ideas from the Masters is like listening to football advice from Vince Lombardi—elegant, purposeful, and direct.  In this compact but complete book, Jerry Weissman gives you all the right slants on public speaking and presentations.  My favorite chapter is Chapter 46, advice from Frank Sinatra—who puts lyrics ahead of melody.  Congratulations, Jerry, on an insightful masterwork.

    C. Richard Kramlich

    Co-Founder and Chairman, New Enterprise Associates

  • Loved the book; it is the key to ‘message received’ because what is said is less important than what is heard!

    Vinod Khosla

    Founder, Khosla Ventures and Partner Emeritus, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

  • Jerry gives you 80 secrets from the world’s best persuaders, compacted into bite-sized chapters that make them easy to read and easy to apply.  Taken together they define the dynamics of communication that can and have changed the world.

    Peter Guber

    Chairman and CEO, Mandalay Entertainment Group

  • The best way to learn how to become great is to study the greatest.  In Presentations in Action, the world’s #1 presentations consultant presents 80 succinct lessons explaining what made the masters effective.  These simple lessons make it easier to be much better.  Jerry taught me how to capture my audience’s attention in the first minute of my talks with just six words, ‘Tell a story, not a joke.’  What a difference.

    Bill Davidow

    Partner Emeritus, Mohr Davidow Ventures and Author of OVERconnected

  • Jerry Weissman is the Jedi Master of presentations and effective communication. Presentations in Action is a wonderful compilation of 80 interesting examples and stories that will make you think and help you improve your presentations and public speaking.  I’ve added this important and to-the-point book to my Jerry Weissman collection.  Another fabulous read from the Silicon Valley legend.

    Garr Reynolds

    Speaker and Bestselling Author of Presentation Zen and Naked Presenter

  • Jerry Weissman has done it again.  Whether readers devour the entire book from cover to cover, or enjoy these concise and compelling nuggets one at a time, the impact remains the same: better business presentations.  These strategies can immediately start improving your presentations.

    JD Schramm, Ed.D.

    Director, Mastery in Communication Initiative, Stanford Graduate School of Business

  • Jerry has hit a home run again with this new book.  It was great to gain insight from those who have ‘mastered’ the art of presenting.  I will refer back to the ideas in this book constantly in the years ahead.  Thank you, Jerry, for another outstanding learning experience.

    Bethany Mayer

    Senior Vice President and General Manager, HP Networking, Hewlett-Packard Company

  • Jerry can change a monotone, mind-numbing presenter into a fascinating, attention-getting, and enthralling speaker.  His teachings are like a dose of Red Bull for the listener.  His latest book is filled with short, captivating snippets which are extremely helpful to anyone giving a speech or a presentation.

    Doug Leone

    General Partner, Sequoia Capital

  • Maestro Jerry Weissman is unquestionably the world’s very best at teaching people how to be great communicators.  Having known and worked with Jerry for many years, Winning Strategies for Power Presentations is the best of his many excellent works, a must read for anyone striving to be a forceful, high-impact presenter.  Readers will derive immense value from this fast flowing, one of a kind gem.

    Dixon R. Doll

    Founder and General Partner, Doll Capital Management

  • Jerry’s technique is both masterful and universal because it finds common ground between audience and speaker, hard questions and direct answers, all with a very simple principle: truth.

    Pierre Omidyar

    Founder and Chairman, eBay and Co-Founder, The Omidyar Group

  • Jerry Weissman helped prepare my management team for our recent IPO.  I sat in on some of the sessions and was most impressed with Jerry’s innovative ways of teaching and optimizing effective executive communication methods.  This training, encapsulated well in his new book, In the Line of Fire, paid off handsomely during our numerous road show presentations.

    Ray Dolby

    Founder, Dolby Laboratories, Inc.

  • Jerry’s book is a must-read for any presenter facing tough and challenging questions from their audience.  This book provides the fundamental foundation on how to prepare, be agile, and take charge no matter how difficult the question.

    Leslie Culbertson

    Corporate Vice President and Director of Finance, Intel Corporation

  • Presenting to Win is the shortest path to applause for any presenter.  It will be your bible for the PowerPoint Age.  It’s loaded with easy actions and real examples that really work.  I’ve used them.  I know.

    Scott Cook

    Founder and Chairman of the Executive Committee, Intuit, Inc.

  • In an era where businesspeople and politicians unfortunately have proven their inability to be honest with bad news, I believe this book should be prescribed reading in every business school, and for every management training session.  In fact, I hope it is read by a far wider audience than that.  It’s just what our society needs right now.

    Po Bronson

    Bestselling Author, What Should I Do With My Life? and Top Dog

  • Customers determine business success, audiences determine presentation success.  Capture your audiences with The Power Presenter.

    Patricia Seybold

    Author and Founder and CEO, Patricia Seybold Group

  • Jerry has the uncanny ability to take the art of communicating and make it feel like science—The Power Presenter is a prescriptive roadmap to communications confidence and excellence.

    Ron Ricci

    Vice President, Corporate Positioning, Cisco Systems, Inc.

    David Perlmutter

    Executive Vice President, General Manager of Intel Architecture Group & Chief Product Officer, Intel Corporation

  • The Power Presenter captures the essence of Jerry’s in-person training, including his approach, real world examples and story-telling strategies.  It’s a must read for anyone who needs to close a deal, market a product or drive consensus.

    Mike Nash

    Former Corporate Vice President, Windows Product Management, Microsoft Corporation; Vice President, Consumer PC & Solutions, Printing and Personal Systems Group, Hewlett-Packard Company

  • As an executive communication coach, Jerry Weissman has taught me and many others that great communication skills are not hereditary, but can be learned.  Jerry’s series of books makes his profound ideas accessible to every reader.  This book, The Power Presenter, is an excellent exposition into what makes a great communicator, and how to become one, starting from the inside.  Using the very persuasion techniques it teaches, this book applies plain language, fun examples, and convincing demonstrations to lead the reader to absorb and internalize the concepts, and gain the skills and confidence to truly become a power presenter.

    Kai-Fu Lee

    Founder and CEO, Innovation Works and Former Vice President, Google Inc.

  • This book will help you bring out your natural charisma.  It’s like a bottle of turbo-charged personality. Take a swig, and you’ll kick butt.

    Guy Kawasaki

    Founding Partner, Garage Technology Ventures, LLC and Bestselling Author of Ape: How to Publish a Book and Enchantment

  • If you’ve ever had butterflies when standing before an audience, this book is for you.  Jerry Weissman is one of the world’s experts in teaching people to overcome their nerves, and his secret starts with something very natural—the comfort we feel when having a conversation with one other person.

    Chip Heath

    Bestselling Author, Made to Stick and Decisive

  • Whether you’re a classroom teacher or the President, this book will help you be an effective communicator.  This book is so insightful, reading it feels like cheating.  Tough questions no longer test my limits.

    Reed Hastings

    Founder and CEO, Netflix, Inc.

  • Jerry Weissman explains in clear terms how to stand up, be heard, and truly master how to reach people with influence.

    Simon Witts

    Former Corporate Vice President, Enterprise and Partner Group, Microsoft Corporation

  • Value simply cannot be realized unless it is communicated.  Untold wealth has died on the vine because it was not effectively presented to key constituents in the value chain.  In this respect, Mr. Weissman and his methods are responsible for the realization of tremendous value in the American economy over the past 15 years.  Nobody teaches the art and science of business presentations better than Mr. Weissman.  He is more than the best in his class…he created the class.  I have recommended him to dozens of companies.  With his help, they have dramatically improved the effectiveness of their internal and external presentations.  InPresenting to Win, he makes his powerful techniques accessible to every person who cares about truly realizing value in their business presentations.

    David M. Traversi

    Former Founder and Managing Director, 2020 Growth Partners, LLC

  • We see 4 presentations every Monday and a dozen more the rest of the week, every week.  Storytelling does not seem to be in the DNA of the presenters. Presenting to Win is the remedy for the problem. Don’t send me technologists, send me storytellers!  The book contains the techniques that have helped many of our Sequoia portfolio companies; it is destined to become a classic.

    Don Valentine

    Founder, Sequoia Capital

  • ‘Everything must communicate Aha!s’ has been my cry in marketing for 30 years.  What you say and don’t say, what you do and don’t do, it all says something.  Now Jerry finally gives all of us the answer on the how to communicate effectively.  Thanks, Jerry, the business world really needs this book.

    Sergio Zyman

    Founder and Chairman, Zyman Group, LLC and Former Chief Marketing Officer, Coca-Cola

  • This is a practical guide to creating persuasive presentations, a skill required of most contemporary business professionals.  Jerry makes it easy to learn how to craft the message and deliver the punch that gets the audience to agree with the premise: getting to Point B.  More powerful than features to benefits, understanding the audience’s WIIFY (what’s in it for you) is a vital part of winning presentations.  Should be read and used as a reference guide for those who seek success as a result of doing their homework and building a presentation that works.  Jerry has trained a number of the AVI portfolio company CEOs and CFOs prior to their IPO road shows.  His methodology works extremely well.

    Peter L. Wolken

    Co-Founder and General Partner, AVI Management Partners

  • We pay big bucks to get Jerry to coach our company CEOs on how to tell their story, and it’s worth every penny.  Now everyone can learn about Jerry’s secret sauce for the price of a few lattés.

    Barry Weinman

    Co-Founding Partner Emeritus, Allegis Capital

  • There are those rare people who can stand up in front of an audience and deliver an impromptu, high-impact message.  For the rest of us, there is Jerry Weissman, who helps us create a high-impact presentation.  His methodology lets you go beyond the jargon of any profession and develop a presentation that will be meaningful to your audience.  Miraculously, your confidence will soar.  He helped me and many others in business…and I am glad to see that he wrote a book.  Beyond the logic of preparing presentations using his methods, the book is full of little nuggets that I will want to refer to over and over again.  And so will you.

    Les Vadász

    Former Executive Vice President, Intel Corporation

  • Many people don’t know who Jerry Weissman is or why he’s known as ‘The Wizard of Aaahs.’ However, for those of us who’ve had a chance to work with him or be coached by him, he is revered as ‘the professor of effective presentations.’ Presenting to Win identifies the simple rules of a master and communicates those rules in a refreshing way.  Jerry shares personal experiences with industry icons that help the reader see the practical side of the process.  You’ll quickly conclude that you’d really like to have Jerry on your team for your next big presentation!

    T. Peter Thomas

    Co-Founder and Managing Director, ATA Ventures

  • After you spend years building your startup, there’s a fleeting moment in time where perception meets reality in the creation of the market value around it.  There’s not a person in the Valley that has coaxed more multiple points out of the market at that point than Jerry.  His coaching on how to really efficiently organize and explain ANY subject matter is proven, and shows in his book.

    Bill Tai

    General Partner, Charles River Ventures

  • Jerry’s concepts on visual presentation techniques are simple and yet extremely powerful.  They make the difference in getting the message across in a constrained time limit.  A must-read for all high-tech managers.

    Anthony Sun

    Managing General Partner, Venrock Associates

  • I took Jerry’s course to prepare for the Abaxis IPO, but what he taught me I have used every time I get in front of people, not only in formal presentations, but in just everyday communication.  And, now as a VC, I listen to 300–400 presentations a year.  It’s just incredulous how so many entrepreneurs don’t know how to present their companies in a clear, concise way that would get you excited about them as an investment.

    Gary Stroy

    President & CEO, IntelliDx, Inc.

  • Jerry helps you focus on the substance of your presentation rather than just its form.  He forces you to think clearly and succinctly.  As a result, not only does your audience understand your business better, you do too.

    Christopher Spray

    Former Senior Partner, Atlas Venture

  • Jerry Weissman always knew how to get the best out of a presentation.  This book is the next best thing to hiring him as an advisor, and a lot less expensive.

    Dick Spalding

    Entrepreneur and Venture Capitalist

  • Weissman’s organization of a CEO’s thoughts and presentation usually created 15–25% more value to the company from institutional investors.

    Sanford Robertson

    Founder and Partner, Francisco Partners

  • Presenting to Win should be required reading for any business executive who will be presenting to any group of internal or external constituents.  Having been a technology investment banker for nearly 15 years, I’ve seen thousands of road show and company presentations, and many of them failed to incorporate the tips and techniques outlined in Presenting to Win. I’ve sent dozens of clients to Jerry over the years, and they have always emerged with crisper, clearer, and more effective presentations.

    Michael J. Richter

    Managing Director and Co-Head of U.S. Aerospace & Defense Group, Lazard Ltd.

  • A great read for all of us who have ever struggled with any aspect of our public speaking skills. Presenting to Win contains the same timeless techniques that helped me [17] years ago.

    Jeff Raikes

    Former President, Microsoft Business Division, Microsoft Corporation and Former CEO, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

  • Jerry’s methods in Presenting to Win helped us raise our own first venture fund with twice the commitments we needed in half the time.  Those same methods then helped many of our portfolio companies not just in their presentations, but had a significant impact in the marketing of their products.

    Andy Rachleff

    President and CEO, Wealthfront Inc.

  • Jerry’s book Presenting to Win is, like his consulting practice, totally on-point and practical.  Jerry has worked with many of the companies I took public as an investment banker or invested in as a venture capitalist.  He made a huge difference in each and every situation.  The best evidence is that even the most polished CEOs in the valley made dramatically more effective presentations with his expert guidance.  Since Jerry can’t work with everyone individually, it is terrific to have his approach and thoughts available in Presenting to Win.

    J. Sanford Miller

    General Partner, Institutional Venture Partners

  • Jerry Weissman has had an enormous impact on the companies that I’ve managed: First Tuesday and now Ariadne Capital.  Through his sessions and techniques, he’s helped me to bring everyone onto the same page with a clear statement of what we’re trying to achieve and to get credit for what we’re doing by telling a better story.  His latest book is testament to the fact that ‘Form is Content.’

    Julie Meyer

    Founder and CEO, Ariadne Capital

  • An absolute necessity in your arsenal to gain an edge in the capital-raising battle.

    Andrew J. Malik

    Chairman and Head of Capital Markets, Needham & Company, LLC

  • I read Jerry’s book with great interest.  The content is both interesting and informative, and the writing is easy to understand and read.  Jerry is a pro’s pro.  If there were a MBA in Power Presentations, Jerry’s book would be the bible!

    Mel Lavitt

    Former Managing Director and Vice Chairman, C.E. Unterberg Towbin and Current Senior Advisor, Needham & Company, LLC

  • Jerry’s help has been of enormous value to many of my companies over the years (at Venrock).  Jerry has a unique ability to guide management teams to clearly identify and convey their key messages in a manner best suited to obtain the desired impact on their target audience.  The transformation can be magical at times, and we have found that not only does the management team appreciate his advice, but the target audience also, as they are able to understand the key issues faster and more clearly than otherwise possible.

    Patrick Latterell

    Founder and General Partner, Latterell Venture Partners

  • Perception is often as, if not more, important than reality.  Great presentation is more important than great substance in creating that perception.  I don’t know anybody who has more experience than Jerry in creating great perceptions.

    Vinod Khosla

    Founder, Khosla Ventures and Partner Emeritus, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

  • Jerry is The Man when it comes to making great pitches.  If your pitch doesn’t get a whole lot better after reading this book, something is wrong with you.

    Guy Kawasaki

    Founding Partner, Garage Technology Ventures, LLC and Bestselling Author of Ape: How to Publish a Book and Enchantment

  • Jerry Weissman’s presentation coaching is world class.  A person contemplating a presentation without utilizing his expertise is like a soldier going to battle without weapons.

    Jay C. Hoag

    Founding General Partner, Technology Crossover Ventures

  • Learn from the master on how to craft and deliver an effective, winning presentation.  I have made over a thousand presentations over the past decade and have found Jerry’s methodology and tips, which he outlines in his book, of tremendous value.

    Jos Henkens

    Former Managing Director, Advanced Technology Ventures

  • Compelling, no-nonsense script to clear, winning communication!  A must have.

    Grant Heidrich

    Partner Emeritus, Mayfield Fund

  • It was a pleasure to read Presenting to Win.  Jerry has been a master for so many of our CEOs from Alpha Partner days to current AVI.  His book should provide excellent background and conditioning to any executive in need of clear and persuasive communication skills.  It carries the reader from ‘point A’ to ‘point B’ in a coherent and thoughtful manner.  I should hope that any reader will feel capable and compelled to adopt the methodology in their next presentation to win!

    Brian J. Grossi

    Principal, daVinci Capital Group

  • For many years, I have witnessed Jerry’s magic as he helped our portfolio companies to formulate and communicate their unique selling propositions in a style that optimized the appeal to investors.  It was not until I read his book that I started to see how valuable it would be to apply his methods personally in presentations that I make regularly to my partners and to our investors.  I would think that everyone who does business presentations could benefit from this easy-to-read, easy-to-apply book.

    Flip Gianos

    General Partner, InterWest Partners

  • Young entrepreneurs with deep domain knowledge are frequently unable to organize and present their vision, or their company’s story, in an orderly, crisp, and compelling fashion.  Jerry Weissman has armed a succession of evolving executives with those critical skills.  This seminal book cogently describes how he does it. Presenting to Win is an essential read for any CEO who intends to raise capital, wishes to elevate the visibility of his/her company in the financial community, or aspires to more credible communication with the company’s employees.

    Irwin Federman

    General Partner, U.S. Venture Partners

  • Jerry’s classic is the definitive encapsulation of a true ‘maestro’ playing his ‘A’ game.  His techniques were an absolutely critical success factor in Luminous raising $80mm in one of the toughest market environments I’ve ever seen.  There isn’t a successful entrepreneur I know who won’t benefit from leveraging his persuasive, maximum-impact presentation principles.

    Dixon R. Doll

    Founder and General Partner, Doll Capital Management

  • During one of the most important periods of my career, Jerry used the concepts in Presenting to Win to prepare me and my team for the EarthLink IPO road show.  He helped us hone our message so that it could be crisply communicated to our audience, and in the process, we gained a better understanding of our own strategy than ever before.  Jerry teaches you how to tell a story, which is more critical to success than most people think. 

    Sky Dayton

    Founder and Chairman, Boingo Wireless, Inc. and Former Founder and Chairman, EarthLink, Inc.

  • Inspiring leaders must possess great communication skills.  They are one of the essential ingredients used to mobilize followers and move nations and markets.  This book tells readers how to develop those skills.

    Bill Davidow

    Partner Emeritus, Mohr Davidow Ventures and Author of OVERconnected

  • Jerry transformed my presentation skills by helping me think of the WIIFY and Aha! factor, and this helped me take my company public in 1998.  Today, through this book, you can acquire the same skills on ‘how to present to win’ for a fraction of what it cost us to learn from Jerry.  It is a must for professional success.

    K.B. Chandrasekhar

    Founder, Exodus Communications and CEO and Chairman, Jamcracker, Inc.

  • Jerry Weissman is an expert in helping leading technology executives improve the clarity and substance of their communication.  Jerry does an excellent job of giving sound recommendations that will lead to better communications and leadership.

    James W. Breyer

    General Partner, Accel Partners

  • Clear, concise, and high-impact communications are necessary for every business executive in today’s high-speed world.  Jerry Weissman provides leaders with simple tools they can draw on quickly in order to maximize the return on all of their communications efforts.

    Sue Bostrom

    Former Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, Worldwide Government Affairs, Cisco Systems, Inc.

  • Read this book and get a master’s degree in effective communications in one afternoon.  The executive teams that we have invested with have used Weissman’s communication techniques to dramatically improve team productivity and shareholder value.

    David F. Bellet

    Retired Chairman, Crown Advisors International, Ltd. and Current Chairman, Bellet Capital Management

  • Going into it, I had read two of the Jerry’s books—and [thought] that I had a good handle on many of the things that I and we (as an org) needed to address in terms of presentation skills.

    I could not have been more wrong.

    Academically, I probably could have passed a written exam with flying colors. However, after being in the room, learning, viewing examples and working in breakout sessions—it became even more clear how much better we all could be doing in terms of audience engagement, slide creation, and answering difficult questions.

    John Burke

  • I use your stuff every day.  Changed my life.  Changed my bonus!

    Karyn Scott

    Senior Director, Global Campaigns,, Inc.

  • If you want to have a successful roadshow, call Jerry—because you want him on your team. Jerry is a master at his trade.  His training sessions and workshop were invaluable and his approach to training is both humbling and encouraging.  He not only prepares you for the roadshow, but also for being a public company.  Today as we prepare for meetings with investors we still refer back to what we learned from the roadshow training.

    Pete Flint

    CEO, Trulia, Inc.

  • Jerry was truly transformational in the entire IPO process.

    Vlad Shmunis

    CEO, Founder & Chairman of the Board, RingCentral, Inc.

  • The perfect presentation has the potential to impact the most important events in your company’s life: financings, mergers, partnerships.  Despite this, most executives and entrepreneurs continually fall short when it comes to delivering a crisp, clear message in a compelling and concrete fashion.  Luckily for them, the master, Jerry Weissman, has decided to share his secrets in Presenting to Win.
