Not your slide deck!!!

Why is that important: It puts you in control at your presentation. The slide deck is there to support your delivery, but YOU will deliver it.

Hence, don't compete with the slides on attracting the audience's attention. In large presentation settings with dim lighting, for example, slides with white background will be brighter than you. You will be swallowed by the darkness of the room.

👉🏻 Make sure the spotlight is on you by dimming the brightness of your presentation; e.g. use a darker colour as slide background, black and darker greytones are really useful.

This is often underestimated and many corporate slide deck designs still insist on white backgrounds. Probably, because it saves printing toner... luckily, we are paperless nowadays and data storytellers know to have a separate deck for distribution after the presentation. 😁

Happy presenting!
