DON’T Use Blank Off-White Walls

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.
