Preparing a handout / e-handout

No matter what format you will be providing your handout in, your attendees need to be able to relate it to what was said during the presentation and to grasp at least the key points quickly and easily. So, back to our favourite mantra again: KISS (Keep It Short and Simple)! Keep in mind that text should be:

  • simply worded: do not complicate information that can be put in a more easily understandable way
  • brief: very few people want to read extended reports or essays, especially when they have just heard the content, so make it all as succinct as possible / keep to key points
  • clean and simple-looking: make good use of space as you do not need to cramp everything on to one page even if you are giving out a paper handout (double sided is an eco-friendly way to print without using more paper!) and if it is an e-handout then there are even fewer space constraints
  • easy to read, size-wise: think about the font size you are using: whether printed out or on a screen, tiny type is just irritating
  • restrained in design: multi-coloured all-singing all-dancing text is just distracting - you want your attendees to have a record of the information they need, not an entertainment package
  • carefully edited and proofread: think of all these points and get someone else (a colleague or even a friend or family member) to proof read once you think you have finished - it's amazing the number of minor errors someone else will spot!
