Text me!

Fellow speaker,

When creating your slide's text, make sure it:
  • Contrasts with the background
  • Can be easily read at the back of the room
  • Has a sans-serif font
  • Can be read quickly
Texting,

Get back!

Fellow speaker,

When creating your slide's background, make sure it:
  • Draws attention away from the background and toward the slide's content
  • Has enough space for the content
  • Contrasts with the content's text color
In the back,

Arrive early and often

Fellow speaker,

To make sure your speech goes smoothly, arrive as early as you can to the speaking site. Showing up at the last minute means you can't fix the room setup, print more handouts, get needed accessories, etc. Showing up early allows you time to fix problems. The earlier you arrive, the more time you have to make sure all problems are spotted and fixed before you get onstage.

Outwardly,
