Communicating science effectively has always been a challenge and now that most of our presentations have gone on-line, the pressure on technical speakers to connect their important work to key stakeholders has never been greater.  Have you ever tried to talk about a new technical project, only to be met with blank stares from your audience? Are you tired of the lifeless, text heavy, bulleted slides that make up most presentations? Did you ever have a slam-dunk winner of a technical proposal go in front of a public audience only to be rejected because they didn’t “get it”? Join scientific presentations expert, Melissa Marshall, to learn practical strategies that you can use to transform the quality of your virtual presentations.  From strategies on slide design to tips and tricks to deliver effectively in the virtual environment, you will walk away with tools and techniques you can use to immediately stand out when presenting your science, virtually.

“Melissa offers a practical approach for creating effective PowerPoint presentations for scientists. The audience excitement that she generates by offering clear “how-to” methods cause course participants to open their own presentations in the middle of her lecture to begin applying her suggestions. Her presentation is so polished, thoughtful, warm, and highly practical that it is no surprise she consistently receives the highest presenter ratings in any of our courses in which she speaks. If you want a guaranteed success, with rave reviews, hire Melissa”.

“I’ve been surprised at my level of success as a result of Melissa’s training. I went from bombing my first presentation to speaking for a crowd of 15,000. This would not have been possible without Melissa.  Melissa is very approachable and practical with her style. As an engineer, it was difficult to be comfortable speaking to a crowd. Melissa made me feel comfortable sharing my ideas and ensuring the audience was engaged. The things I learned from Melissa have been invaluable. I can honestly say that I would not be as far along in my career without her guidance.”

— Air Liquide

“We began with Melissa’s training with our leadership team and have extended it to our entire program. Melissa’s experience with scientific presentations resonated with our organization. She quickly achieved credibility. Her practical tips were described by one of our scientists as “a life changing experience”! Our program’s presentations are achieving more clarity in the messages we convey.”
