Touch base with your audio visual technician before the start of the event. Ask them to give you a signal when you approach the podium indicating that the microphone is live. This will prevent you from having to ask before the start of the presentation “is this live” or from tapping on the microphone (an audio visual technician’s least favourite thing!).
Ensure that the microphone is pointed towards your mouth. If necessary, pull the neck (not the head of the microphone or it can create feedback) of the microphone towards you.
Remember that while you are presenting at the podium, you cannot leave the podium area. Although it is slightly forgivable, you can only move about seven to nine inches away from the podium microphone in order for it to pick up your voice.
