Melissa Marshall is on a mission: to transform how scientists, engineers, and technical professionals
present their work. That’s because she believes that even the best technical ideas are destined to remain undiscovered unless presented in a clear and compelling way that sparks innovation and drives adoption.
For over a decade, she’s traveled around the world to work with Fortune 100 corporations, institutions and universities, teaching the proven strategies she’s mastered through her consulting work and during her time as a faculty member at Penn State University. Melissa is the go-to expert that places like NASA, the American Heart Association, Pfizer, and Harvard Medical School consult when they need to present their world-changing research.
In 2019, Microsoft recognized Melissa’s work in dramatically changing the way technical professionals use PowerPoint to present their science by naming her a Microsoft MVP or Most Valuable Professional.
Melissa is internationally known for her popular TED Talk entitled “Talk Nerdy to Me” which has over 2 million views (and counting!).
Melissa is the founder of Present Your Science, a consulting company that provides on-site group workshops, conference sessions, and 1:1 coaching.
