The number of people in extreme poverty fell by 137,000 since yesterday!
This could have been the leading news headline today. In fact: it could have been the news headline every single day for the last 25 years. It’s just that these kind of positive long term developments are not covered by the news.
In order to clearly navigate in this age of cursory news, framing, fake news and alternative facts it is increasingly important to obtain an objective view based on facts as supposed to spreading un-nuanced opinions. By focussing less on the daily news and put more emphasis on the longer term trends, the world often turns out to be in much better shape than we’re inclined to think.
Factfulness is a term that was introduced by Ola Rosling of the Gapminder Foundation which means: the stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. The factfulness concept aims to provide a clear and accurate fact-based worldview that everyone can understand.
Peter ten Wolde spreads the factfulness message using an entertaining presentation in which he shows a positive picture of the world. He explains the mechanics of pre-conceived ideas, how these influence your worldview and an alternative approach to deal with them.
Naturally your event (inspiration session, network event, conference, customer day, strategy session, team meeting, annual meeting or away day) must be successful. In order to increase the appreciation of your participants / visitors you gladly offer them something extra.
During your event the presentation about factfulness is the perfect entertaining and informative intermezzo with a serious message. After the presentation your audience has a more open and nuanced view on their direct environment and the world at large.
Your audience is presented with a method to navigate clearly in this age of framing, fake news and alternative facts allowing to put matters in the correct context in an un-biased way.
In this video Peter explains in 2 minutes what his Factfulness presentation is about and the value it delivers to your audience.
