Public Speaking: Make Your Handouts Last Longer

Great Public Speaking

If you want your public speaking handout material to be kept forever, you must give each audience member a reason to keep it. I do this by strategically adding important reference material to EACH PAGE of the speaking handout.

Don't forget to put your contact information on every page of the handout too.

What is the purpose of a handout?

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

In my mind, a handout is a recall aid for the audience. I see some handouts where I wonder what the presenter was thinking. But the quote wasn't on the handout, so people spent time writing the quote down instead of listening to what the presenter was saying about why this idea was important. It's also why I always give the handout before I start, so people can focus on understanding the points and figuring out how they apply instead of busily writing down notes.
