Richard Butterfield is a presentation coach to some of the nation's most prominent business leaders. For the first time, he offers the core of his expertise to the general public in Ten Steps to a "Perfect Ten" Presentation - best practices for public speaking in the era of TED Talks.

"Every time a TED video goes viral, it raises the stakes for anyone with a presentation to give," says Butterfield. "With the TED phenomenon has come an elevated standard of public speaking."

For the audience, it is a welcome upgrade from an epic of busy PowerPoint decks and White Papers masquerading as presentations. For the speaker, these new TED standards require a higher level of presentation skill.

The good news is that the same principles TED speakers use for their talks can be applied to any public speaking engagement. In Ten Steps to a Perfect 10, Butterfield offers advice for building and producing a high quality presentation. Following this well-tested preparation protocol results in crisp messaging and compelling content. Equally important are effective methods for rehearsal and stage production.

All Ten Steps apply to C-suite executives as well as lawyers, doctors, animators, or authors on a book tour. Presentation excellence serves every person in every profession.
