That's like...

Fellow speaker,

To make your statistics be interesting to your audience, make them:
  • Specific - give details of the statistic - "Our new PDA has 20GB of storage"
  • Relevant - relate statistics to your audience's world - "That's enough storage for anything you need to use this PDA for" 
  • Context - compare statistic to something your audience will easily understand - "That's enough memory for 6,000 songs, 20,000 photos, or 50 hours of video"
