Train The Trainer at SoftUni (Mistake 40 of 50): The Microphone


In the previous one we discussed the “That’s it” ending and how not effective it is. Now I want us to discuss one more before we jump into a series of 10 posts related to presentation design only.

Mistake: Too much noise coming out from the microphone.

Why is this a problem: It’s distracting and annoying for your audience. 

Solution: Test your mic well in advance before your session. Each and every microphone is different and the same applies for the rooms you are going to be speaking at. Make sure that it’s not too close or too far away. Let the admin of the room go at the back of it and check if you can be easily heard.

Here, now you are 40(!) steps closer to becoming a great trainer. ?
