These concentric circles are a nice way to bring the text out of the center graphic and place it cleanly on the perimeter of the slide. The call-out rectangles make a bold connection to the circles. It is easy to create these concentric circles by inserting and sizing the Donut shape from the Shapes menu. Then simply add the rectangles, size them to the width of the circle, and add your text. Right-align the text on the right side of the circles, and left-align the text on the left side of the circles. Space them so that they appear balanced.
