I'm not sure if you linked to this or not, but here is a wonderful video presentation titled "Stats that will reshape your world view". The video is as much about how to use stats to shape one's world view at the stats themselves. The video is dramatic and includes information about freely available software which you can use yourself to make your stats interesting and digestible.
That said, it should be noted that humans (like most animals I would guess) need emotions to make decisions. For example, we know that people with brain injuries who are cut off from their emotional centers have trouble making even the most basic of decisions. (Is it time to go to bed? Should I brush my teeth?) My point is: Stats can help inform our emotions, but we should not forget that the stats by themselves do not do the work. A presentation, while helped along by good data presented well, needs to engage emotions to be effective.
