Asus unveils involve one of two people. It’s either Jerry Shen, CEO of Asus or it is Jonney Shih. They both have their own styles for sure. When it comes to Jonney, he has something special when it comes to grabbing an audience.
At Computex this year, Asus is set to have their biggest product unveils ever. This is saying a lot because in the past there have been some amazing presentations. The ZenPad rebrand is a big deal for Asus. There is a lot of pressure that the product gains more traction and that Asus can climb up the sales ladder and be in the #2 or #3 position.
But regarding Jonney Shih, he’s the man to present the ZenPads. There may be times when you’re thinking that the presentation is coming off the rails, but have no fear, it’s all part of the entertainment. Oh yes, there will be the “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.” moments. There will be many occasions when Jonney almost begs for applause without actually asking. It’s the power of the pause as they say.
For my money, Jonney Shih is the best presenter out there. There is more to these events than just showing a product. It’s about including some entertainment also. Like other years, there should be an Intel rep on stage. These moments present some awkward fun on stage and that is what makes these presentations memorable.
Get ready for it. Asus at Computex is June 1st.
