Sam Speaks Science


Presentation skills for experts


Facts are rarely appealing. Stories are.

What is the point of creating knowledge if you are unable to share it? Most experts know how to give an objective and rigorous presentation, but only a few speak about their work with compelling and engaging stories. I lead workshops to help experts transform their knowledge into impactful talks.

SamSpeaksScience emerged from the aggregation of many interests. Having published a number of influential articles in the field of neuroscience, I also perform improvised comedy and explore the interface between art and science. My insights on how to face and engage an audience reflects my love for science, teaching and the performing arts.

Individuals, companies and institutions active in the fields of hard sciences, technology, humanities and business harness my expertise, my energy and my commitment to meet their needs and objectives.
