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.

Great Public Speaking - Mic The Audience

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

You might think that using a mic is as simple as holding it in front of your mouth and talking. And no, using a mic is not particularly complicated, but there are a few things to remember to make your speech as effective as it can be. If at all possible, test the mic before you use it.

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?

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.

Don’t complain to your audience

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

And the microphone was a wired lavaliere mic. Instead, she made a comment close to the start of the presentation about the fact that she was supposed to have a wireless lav mic and instead got this wired one that was less convenient. Later in the presentation she made a similar comment about the mic. You need the right mic, the right type of room, etc. Last week at a conference I saw a speaker do something that I recommend never doing.
