The Eloquent Woman

A male speaker is typically wearing plenty of things on which you can hook a lavalier mic: Lapels or a tie or a jacket breast pocket for the mic that goes in front, and a belt and pant waistband on which to hook the battery pack in back, or a pocket to put it in.

Don't be macho -- use a mic

Speak Schmeak

Use a mic. Download audio here. I'll be the first to admit that I take an almost macho pride in my ability to project my voice. I was born this way. Even when I wasn't trying, I could be heard talking a mile away. And yes, I got in trouble a lot in school for being too loud.

The Eloquent Woman

For actor Scarlett Johansen, whose impassioned speech came near the end of the already overtime program, they simply turned off her mic and turned on music, to her obvious dismay. Surprising Scarlett Johansen by turning off her mic? Even at a women's march, a man can hog the mic.

Trump's Hot Mic and/or Bridgegate Hot Seat - Chris Christie Goes Low Profile

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

But since the hot mic expose, Trump might be the one Christie has taken the initiative to distance himself. According to Politico, Chris Christie is still in charge of the transition team in the event Donald Trump wins the White House. Aside from that, he's essentially gone low profile.

Great Public Speaking - Mic The Audience

Great Public Speaking

You may have killed! You may have had them rolling in the aisles! You may have gotten a 3 minute standing ovation! but your tape of this event might stink. I have seen so many tapes ruined (including my own) because the presenter didn't make sure there was a microphone recording audience reactions. This isn't really a humor technique but it is really important for humorous presenters for two reasons.

Vocal space: Can I please hear you “Wow” me?

Kate's Voice

Headset mics […]. One of the most common vocal habits that we hear in business presentations is people dropping the volume of their last words to an almost inaudible level. I am quite sure the habit is a result of people being hunched over their computers all day, speaking into headsets rather than across a room. Vocal Image exercises perception vocal power

Choosing a Presentation Remote Control

Presentation Guru

I was extremely careful with my arrangement: set up the screen just so, timed my slides perfectly, ensured the mic was working seamlessly without any annoying feedback. I had a kick-ass presentation prepared for my seminar on “Managing Equity Funds”.

Microphone manners

The Eloquent Woman

I sometimes joke that I have two kinds of clients, those who need to be pushed toward the mic and those who must be pulled away from it.

Never lose focus

Speak Schmeak

The weight of the mic was causing the horizontally-positioned stand to sink slowly. He regained his focus and restarted the song, and within a minute had to stop again, as the second mic stand was starting to droop toward the piano keys. What if none of the mic stands would work?

Microphone Techniques for Speakers and Performers

Inter-Activ Presenting and Influencing

It’s all too common for inexperienced speakers to start off with the mic nice and close but then to unconsciously, move it further and further away as they continue to speak resulting in a gradual tail off in volume. The third most common cause of poor microphone technique is speaking “off mic.” Always keep your mic and your mouth lined up. Why is handheld microphone technique so important for speakers?

Are you making these rookie mistakes?

Speak Schmeak

Bert Decker's post on when to use a microphone mentions other reasons you might need a mic, regardless of the size of the crowd. Don't be macho -- use a mic. There's nothing wrong with being an inexperienced speaker. We all have to start somewhere, and it's usually at the beginning.

My triple Axel moment

Speak Schmeak

First, there was a fixed mic on a stand in the middle of the stage, and we were not allowed to remove it or walk around the stage, for the purposes of videotaping. If you don't watch figure skating (and even if you do), you may not understand the importance of the triple Axel in competition.

Don’t let cold hands stop you from writing: try Voice Typing

Public Speaking: Microphone Tips

Great Public Speaking

The first is a lavaliere mic that clips to your lapel or collar. Make sure you turn your mic off when you are not on the platform to avoid sharing private comments with the rest of the audience. Popping is caused when "plosives" like 'p','t', and 'd' are spoken and the air from your mouth hits the mic. To prevent popping, position the mic about a hands width away and slightly below your mouth so that the air from your mouth does not hit the microphone.
