Let’s be clear:
A pure white background is a good thing.
White is clean. It’s clear. It’s professional.
But off-white, on the other hand, can range from “blah” to “gross.”
A subset of this mistake includes whiteboards.
Whiteboards are actually tricky to light without creating a bunch of glare. We recommend skipping the whiteboard and using a paper easel instead.
Another option is to use a monitor or screen, like we often do for our trainings…
Both options create little to no glare and look professional.
