Presentation Skills for Brainiacs


It can be tough for STEM professionals to create easy-to-understand presentations that inspire people to take action. If you’re having difficulty communicating your complex subject matter and connecting with your audience, this workshop is for you. The Presentation Skills for Brainiacs workshop was developed to help you improve the way you create and deliver presentations. Not only will more people understand what you’re talking about, they’ll know what you want them to do with that information. 

You’ll learn the 6 Tips for Great Presentations, discover the Analyze and Synthesize method for redesigning slides, and see everything come together with Slide Makeovers! Even if you have no design or marketing background, you will leave this workshop with skills you can use to become a better presenter. This interactive workshop will make you rethink what a presentation can be!



Laura Foley helps people to develop informative, entertaining presentations that any audience can understand. Here are a few of her favorite projects:

  • Designing a TED-like talk with an MIT genetics professor, complete with video and LEGO analogies
  • Teaching marketers at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care how to develop and write clear and compelling presentations about very confusing topics
  • Ignite presentation training and coaching for TE Connectivity and a major West Coast athletic wear manufacturer

Laura combines her skills as a visual designer, writer, and marketer with a knack of quickly getting to the point to help her clients to communicate more clearly through their presentations. She lives in Central Massachusetts with her husband and two sons and is an active Scout leader who enjoys hiking and camping.
