“Science not communicated is science not done.”


Changing the world,

one presentation at a time.

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 tenure 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 nearly 2.5 million views (and counting!). 

She is the founder of Present Your Science, a consulting company that provides on-site group workshops, conference sessions, and 1:1 coaching.

When your scientists work with Melissa, they’ll get the practical skills and natural confidence they need to immediately shift their “information dump”-style presentations into ones that are meaningful, engaging, and inspire people to take action. And the benefits go far beyond any single presentation; working with Melissa, your entire organization will develop a culture of successful communication, one that will help you launch products and ideas more effectively than ever before.
