Personally, I like a deep blue with white or yellow text. One of my
standards is to select a "deepening" color scheme where the darkest
shade frames the slide and the lightest shade is in an oval in the
center.

But, that's my preference. Blue is a color that tends to sooth without
putting someone to sleep. (It takes a presenter to do that most
effectively.)
