Microphone faux pas
MARCH 15, 2011
It's me, and it's natural, and I don't have a problem with it, but where this gets me into trouble is when I'm wearing a wireless lapel mic. Standing at a lectern with a fixed mic, the person introduced the next speaker, then proceeded to clap right into the microphone inches away from her hands. For more on proper microphone use, see the following: Don't be macho, use a mic I can't hear you How to use a microphone. I'm a "handsy" speaker; that is, I gesture a lot.
