How do I communicate my research with a general audience more effectively?

I really enjoyed my research but it happens that whenever I tell somebody about it, I have the impression I'm making it sound boring, unimportant and not exciting.Americans have a way of telling a story, I know this kind of "performance" does not suit my habit. I'm more the continental European, a bit reserved, a bit technical. Not everything I did immediately is about curing cancer, I admit it.I started by adapting a kind of top-down approach, first I say "Simulations", usually people feel they can relate to that. And if they wish to know more, then I can start going into some details.I think this approach makes sense, but still, I find others can induce interest by the other person immediately from the start of their explanations.Question: **How can I communicate my research to a general audience in a way that is more exciting and interesting?**
