Presentations: Providing Resources for Your Session

AHP highly encourages speakers to provide their presentation/handouts for attendees to use during the session. The sessions are often evaluated not only by the expertise of the speaker but also on the availability of presentations or shared resources. AHP will not provide copies of presentations or handouts at the conference.

What constitutes a handout?

  •  A copy of your PowerPoint presentation (Download the AHP Convene Canada PowerPoint Template)
  • A resource from your organization that can be used as a tool for an attendee that demonstrates what you are teaching about
  • A summary of your presentation

Email your presentation using the PowerPoint template above to by April 19, 2018. Presentations will be posted on the website for attendees to download before the conference.

Note: When you send in your PowerPoint document, we will convert the file to a printable and secure PDF. We will not edit the content of your presentation. You are required to bring your PowerPoint on a flash drive with you to the conference in addition to emailing a copy to AHP so we can post it for attendees. If you are not able to provide your presentation by the deadline, it is your responsibility to bring with you 75 copies of your presentation in the notes format for session attendees.
