Grab the audience with these 2 keys

One career-building move for admins is learning to comfortably address a group, whether it’s a Lunch ‘n’ Learn, a meeting or some other front-and-center role.

When you’re ready to turn the audience’s focus from a PowerPoint slide to you, here’s how to grab their attention. (No one enjoys talking to people staring blankly at a screen.) Press one of these two keys:

1. The “B” key on your keyboard puts a black slide on the screen (best in a darkened room).

2. The “W” key puts a blank, white slide on the screen (best in a lighted room).

Either way, the visual break allows you a graceful way to direct eyeballs on you and your words, without losing your place in the presentation. It also can be useful as a way to transition from one topic to the next.

To restart your slides, simply press the “B” or “W” key again.
