Why lapel microphones can instantly crucify all your hard work
Ignore this advice at your peril
I recently watched one of my clients prepared presentations implode as she tried in vain to work against a dodgy lapel mic.
Whether it was a the batteries, the fabric of the jacket she was wearing or the in-correct placement on her lapel, I quickly organised a handheld and swapped it over.
Luckily I had insisted that handheld be made available otherwise the sound guy would've had to walk up on stage, ask her to apologise and call a halt while he fiddled around her backside changing batteries or adjusting the placement.
I didn't get a photo of the incident above - but recently I spoke in China and witnessed something very similar ...
I know many of you have invested in lapel microphones - but at least, do yourself a favour and try out a handheld at your next engagement.
