Jerry Weissman

Jerry Weissman is the world's number one corporate presentations coach. His private client list reads like a who's who of the world's best companies, including the top brass at Yahoo!, Intel, Intuit, Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Dolby Labs and many others.

Mr. Weissman founded Power Presentations, Ltd. in 1988 and in 2017, changed the name to Suasive, Inc. to reflect clients' goals: to make an impact, to influence, to get results, to persuade.

One of his earliest efforts was the Cisco Systems IPO roadshow. Following its successful launch, Don Valentine, of Sequoia Capital, and then chairman of Cisco's Board of Directors, attributed "at least two to three dollars" of the offering price to Mr. Weissman's coaching. That endorsement led to nearly 500 other IPO roadshow presentations that have raised hundreds of billions of dollars in the stock market. Mr. Weissman's focus widened from coaching IPOs to include public and privately held companies. His techniques have helped another 500 firms develop and deliver their mission-critical business presentations.

Those same techniques form the basis of Jerry's publications. The book, Presenting to Win: The Art of Telling Your Story, covers his concepts of story development and graphics design. His second book, In the Line of Fire: How to Handle Tough Questions...When it Counts, and its companion DVD, In the Line of Fire: An Interactive Guide to Handling Tough Questions, cover his Q&A techniques.

The DVD contains lessons from the book, illustrated by video clips of tough Q&A sessions in the public arena. It includes press conferences, media interviews and presidential debates, featuring the 2004 debates between President George W. Bush and John F. Kerry.
