Summary

Great Demo! provides sales and presales staff with a method to dramatically increase their success in closing business through substantially improved software demonstrations. It draws upon the experiences of thousands of demonstrations, both delivered and received from vendors and customers. The distinctive "Do the Last Thing First" concept generates a "Wow!" response from customers. The Great Demo! method is presented simply and clearly, and is elaborated more fully in each successive chapter, providing a rich toolkit for software sales teams. Real-life anecdotes, examples, and axioms offer humorous and effective punctuation. Updated with new best practices, tips and techniques, this second edition now includes a complete chapter on remote demonstrations - an area of increased activity and unique challenges. An additional chapter on managing evaluations (for fun and profit) extends the utility of the audiobook to those in sales and management. Great Demo! is a terrific listen on an airplane or between customer visits. It offers a straightforward process for creating and delivering highly compelling software demonstrations, excellent advice, tips, and the occasional epiphany.

Too much repetition and basics

Would have preferred a fictional novel instead of a manual, but there were a lot of great tips. Some parts were just tedious to listen to

Great Content

There is so much good stuff in this book. It’s dry no matter how you spin it, but I definitely made notes of chapters to go back and review time and again.

There’s some recording mistakes in chapter 15 and the “axiom notifier” usually is Much louder than the spoken word. Otherwise, great listen!

Terrible! Don’t waste your money or credit

I had to give up by chapter 4. This book is a series of lists and hype. No content.
