How to create a great science presentation

Based on the contents of our e-book Cause an Effect, we developed a workshop with practical tips on how to improve your narrative and slide design so that your next presentation is clear and memorable.

During ‘Bessensap’, an annual event where science meets press, Stephan told a fully booked room about the do’s and don’t of science presentations. With all kinds of beautiful examples, he explained how graphs, photos and other visual support can complement a story, but also can take away from it. I’m sure it has inspired many members of the audience to create their next science presentation in a clear and creative way.

– Anouk Broersma, Bessensap

Science should be shared, so make sure you share it well!

Content design

Perfect for scientists who want to start publishing their own content.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a writer, researcher or science journalist – when you present your or anyone else’s research, it’s important to think about how you do it! This goes for poster presentations as much as online articles, websites or social media. In this workshop, you will learn how to structure your content, write better headings, and increase understanding of your message.

We are also available to talk about our own respective expertises, and have done so on many occasions and in various media. Contact us if you want a talk on Nutrition & Health or Biology!

Liesbeth Smit - The Online Scientist


Nutrition Scientist

What are the facts and fiction in the world of nutrition? Don’t get fooled by misleading claims and promises in food advertisement and pseudoscience, have Liesbeth talk about what’s really healthy and debunk common myths.
With her background as a nutrition scientist at Harvard School of Public Health and VU University in Amsterdam and her vision on how to design better science presentations, she can explain the science with nuance and makes even the most complicated topics easy to understand.
Whether it’s a class of schoolchildren or a room full of CEO’s, Liesbeth is an energetic speaker that will leave you with something to think about (and maybe even a better diet).



Evolutionary Biologist

My education in evolutionary biology gave me a broad perspective on life, and I love to talk about it and inspire audiences using nature as a guide. Besides my specialisation in (evolutionary/reproductive) biology and science, I have built a considerable expertise in remote working, and as it is one of the work ethics of the future, I want to spread the word about that too.
I’m a registered speaker at Speaker’s Academy, with topics ranging from remote working to evolutionary biology for businesses. If you are Dutch, please see my profile at their website.
