About the Author:

Simon Guest is a prominent speaker in the software industry, whose 20-year career has run the gamut from 1:1 presentations with Bill Gates to onstage talks to many thousands of people, and almost everything in between. His presentations are consistently highly rated by attendees at leading industry conferences, and on two occasions he has been inducted to Sun Microsystems' Speaker Wall of Fame.

As well as having the opportunity to speak in countries covering almost every continent across the world, Simon has been fortunate to witness some of the best speakers in the industry—stories from whom are retold within this book. This, together with organizing and running one of the tracks for a Microsoft worldwide conference, has given him unique insight into what it takes to design and deliver a professional technical presentation that stands out from the pack.
