Make Your Statistics Tell Stories: A Master Class

Doctor and researcher Hans Rosling's excellent two-for-one deal of a TED talk at TEDIndia was recently pointed out on the blog Presentation Zen and offers spectacular value for the viewer. Packed into the 18-minute talk is both an engaging look at the economic rise of India and China, including a bold prediction of when the Asian giants will catch up to the US economically, and an astounding master class in how clever presentation can transform dry statistics into engaging stories. Using the technology behind his web service Gapminder World, Rosling turns development statistics such as life expectancy and average income into a fascinating narrative of the race to the top among competing nations. Check it out and be inspired before your next presentation.
