Talking points

  • Were you aware of talking points ?
  • and if so, is there anything to improve? If not, how can we ensure people DO know about these?


The posters have three goals:

  1. get people intrigued
  2. draw them to our booth to ask questions
  3. give something to our advocates to talk about to booth visitors


  • did you see people read the posters?
  • did they lead to questions, did ppl come to the booth?
  • did/can the booth people use the poster texts as 'talking points'?
  • anything else?

Flyers The flyers have three goals:

  1. give people something they can take home to study and find links to further information (we used to have people photograph the posters, that is why the flyers have the same information on them!)
  2. get people intrigued and get them to ask questions
  3. give something to our ambassadors to talk about to booth visitors


  • did people take the flyers, read them?
  • did they lead to questions?
  • did/can the booth people use the flyers as 'talking points'?
  • anything else?
