Simple Action day, London, 13 April 2016
"The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills has published a call for evidence about how T&Cs can be made more accessible for consumers. You can find it here:
Thanks to all those who came to the Simple Action day on 13 April in London. We came up with some interesting responses to the consultation from the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). They are looking for ways to make Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) more accessible.
We felt that rather than dive into recommending specific solutions such as ‘put key facts in bold’ (one of those in the consultation document), it’s better to encourage better design processes and realistic performance standards.
You can download our draft report from here."

Despite it was almost a decade ago when Garr Reynolds published the excellent “Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery” I still see loads of badly designed presentations. They fail to deliver the brilliant ideas their authors want to communicate.
If you only kept two simple things in mind, you already achieved your goal: the audience pays attention and understands your idea.
- one thought/sentence per slide — no endless bullet point list
- search a relevant image (with large sky or empty space to write on) to be used as a full screen background. There are many excellent license free image sources.
Thanks for reading and sharing.
