History and statistics.
Be honest, when you read those two words together, do you think to yourself “hey now those topics together could make for a really engaging presentation!” Probably not. But in the hands of the right speaker—someone who is both passionate and knowledgeable about their subject—anything becomes possible.
Just as important, when that passionate presenter invests in the right tools to communicate their message in a meaningful, memorable way, magic can happen.
Hans Rosling, Professor of International Health at Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet, provides a great example of this. It’s worth watching the entire presentation, but around the 5:25 mark, watch how history and statistics come to life in his PowerPoint/slideware show.
