Put science in your talk and impress your audience, I always thought so. Hence the most interesting talks are the ones who are actually teaching us something.

Yet some speakers are focusing too much on the content rather on their audience. Therefore they become boring and unpopular. But there are no boring subjects, only boring speakers.

Moreover, there are times that we need to give a speech without any visual aid, like slides or videos. So we need to be extra careful about our words and information we give. 

But if we want to sound more interesting and intriguing, we can include scientific facts and numbers. In this way, our talk will have validity and therefore evidence to support our opinions.
