When applicable, please use a microphone or the microphone of a headset for the recording. This minimises external noises, which will be coming through if the built-in microphone is used.

CX 2020 PowerPoint Template

To facilitate consistency and to ensure readability of slides, please observe the following guidance:

  • Add your institution logo to the bottom right of the first slide. The CX logo must remain on the bottom left of the slide, as per the template
  • Please create your template for a 16:9 ratio screen, as per the template
  • Use the default white font for text on all slides, as per the template. This will ensure content can be read easily against the blue background
  • (If an additional colour is needed alongside the white) Do not use black, blue, orange or green colour fonts as these will be too hard to read against the blue background. Please consider readability when selecting font colours other than white
  • Avoid decreasing the font size below 24 as it will be too hard to read
