How to create a great scientific presentation
Based on the contents of our e-book Cause an Effect, we developed a workshop and a presentation 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.

Very useful and interactive workshop. Writing my research down in a single sentence was a really cool exercise.

IMPACT with science
We love it when scientists go out into the (online) world and reach their audience. With this workshop we help them how to get their message clear, how to use social media, and how to design their content so it’s more appealing.
With tips from our book, case studies from real life projects and practical examples we inspire you to get more out of your work!
Liesbeth gave a 2-hour interactive workshop to our PhD students on how to create impact with scientific research. So much was discussed: How do you keep a poster readable? What do you put and especially NOT put on your slides during a presentation? What is the one-liner of your research? Liesbeth presented in a very spontaneous and open manner, and inspired us to get more out of science. Our participants were excited to put what we learned into practice.

WORKSHOP / PRESENTATION
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.
I think Liesbeth’s superpower is that she helps you think beyond the cliches. She helps you explain complex problems in such a way that you think ‘Wow. That was easy, why didn’t I think of this myself?’ She understands the web as a medium AND is able to quickly understand your research work or business. That is a rare combination.

Science communication is key to a better relationship between science and society.
We are also available to talk about our own respective expertise, and have done so on many occasions and in various media. Contact us if you want a talk on Nutrition & Health or Biology!
Cause an Effect
A practical guide to designing science presentations that engage & inspire
Improve your science presentation and stand out from the crowd with the best presentation design at any conference. This practical book – by scientists, for scientists – helps you get rid of slides full of data and present with clarity instead.
- Develop a clear goal and message that sticks until long after you wrap up
- Write a story that keeps the audience engaged instead of asleep
- Design slides that communicate effectively, with PowerPoint, Prezi or any other software
- Get new presentation ideas for graphs, tables and data slides without chart junk
- See what we mean by comparing real life examples of good and bad slides
