MOSCOW, Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexei Kapterev, a lecturer with the Graduate School of Business Administration at Moscow State University, has a four-part presentation skills training series on Coursera. Coursera provides universal access to the world's best education by partnering with top universities and organizations to offer courses online. The training facilitated by Kapterev was launched on Coursera by the National Research Tomsk State University, which is the largest classical university in the Asian part of Russia.
Kapterev is the author of "Death by PowerPoint", the world's most popular presentation about presentations with more than 10 million views to date. He also authored "Presentation Secrets", published in the U.S. by John Wiley and a best-selling book on presentations in Russia. In 2012, Kapterev became an honorary member of the United Kingdom Speechwriters' Guild. He runs a consulting practice in addition to working with Mercator, Russia's leading business graphics company. As a consultant, Kapterev has worked for Bosch, Mondelez, KPMG, BNP-Paribas, Societe Generale, Castorama, and EMC.
More than inspired by the late Steve Jobs' presentation style, Kapterev was motivated to start emulating Jobs, practicing, experimenting and perfecting his own presentation style and skill. Kapterev became so successful he quit his consulting business and became a full-time speechwriter and presentation coach. The four courses Kapterev offers through Coursera teach students the most important factors in delivering a good presentation: speech writing and storytelling; designing presentation slides; effective presentation delivery; and a public speaking project.
"This course will help students develop the skills needed for excellent and engaging presentations," says Kapterev. "It's more than just learning rules of how to give a good presentation, but rather developing the skills and adaptability and versatility needed that will be carried throughout any presentation to any kind of audience."
