Q. Is it better to use a dark or a light background in PowerPoint?
A. You’ll hear a lot of opinions on this topic. My opinion is based on delivering programs in auditorium, classroom and conference room settings. The answer: It depends. In a large room, like an auditorium, a very sparsely populated screen with a white background is like a witness interrogation room. So, in that environment, I’m inclined to use a black background. In a classroom or conference room setting a light background may be easier to read. Keep your slides simple and put the meat of it in the handout for classroom and boardroom presentations.
