I cam across this TED talk while reading Nancy Duarte’s ‘Resonance: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences’ in which the talk is highlighted as a case study on how powerful incorporating stories into presentations can be.

Benjamin Zander has two infectious passions: classical music, and helping us all realize our untapped love for it — and by extension, our untapped love for all new possibilities, new experiences, new connections.

It’s a pretty powerful presentation, made even so by the use of classical music. Watch it and be inspired.
