So who is considered a great presenter that can be watched on TED? Bill Gates and Al Gore were two people we watched in presentation skills classes. Any other notable speakers that could be used as models of good technique?

If you've never watched Rick Smolan's talk about a half-American girl he found in Korea, you're in for a treat. Amazing story.
