The Prezi Top 100

The past couple of weeks have been pretty exciting for this blog. Only days after reaching 1,000,000 visitors, I received an email from the good people at Prezi notifying me that they had chosen Manner of Speaking as one of their “Top 100 Online Resources Every Presenter Should See”. What’s more, from among the Top 100, Prezi staff members chose ten favourites and Manner of Speaking was one of the ten.

Prezi explains how the list—which includes article and blogs, videos and podcasts, presentations and books—was created:

We have scoured the web looking for the most inspirational and useful resources for anyone looking to improve their presentation skills; the #PreziTop100 is the result of all this hard work. We assembled this list by looking at both popularity data (Alexa Rank, Google page rank, page views, Klout score, social media followers, and social engagement) and the quality of the content as determined by a panel of Prezi judges. So, without further ado, here are the best videos, articles, presentations, and blogs to get your creative juices flowing. Keep an eye out for our Staff Favorites in each category—look for the bolded links.

My sincere thanks to Prezi for the recognition—it is much appreciated—and for compiling such a great list. I was already familiar with many of the resources mentioned, but there are several that I had not seen before.

I encourage you to check out the list and do some exploring of your own. You will find lots of useful ideas and inspiration.

[Update: As of January 2020, it appears that Prezi’s list is no longer on line.]

    Well done John. “Manner of Speaking” is certainly where I look for inspiration in times of challenge and I am forever grateful for how available you are for help and advice not to mention how you lead by example in the quality of your own speeches. I would love to see more of your comedy posted on youtube I must add. I always give your blog a plug with new members I mentor. Keep up the good work and come visit Sydney Australia some time soon. Cheers Chris.

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks so much for the kind comment. I very much appreciate it. It is great to be able to share ideas and have good discussions with people such as yourself. I don’t have any more humorous speeches at the moment; however, a year ago I started doing improv comedy here in Geneva. It is a hoot and a very unique form of public speaking: quick thinking; working with others; making your partner(s) look good. We have had two live shows so far and are working to set up a YouTube Channel. Stay tuned.

      I would love to get back to Sydney. I was there many years ago and have fond memories of your great city. My good friend, Olivia Schofield, has just completed a visit to Toastmasters in Perth. (It is her second visit to Australia, I believe.) Perhaps one day I will follow in her footsteps.
