Funny Noises from a Conference Presenter

The keynote speaker at the convention was great, but every now and then she had to clear her throat and did it right into the microphone. It was distracting and annoying.

If you need to clear your throat, sneeze, or cough, or make any kind of funny sounds that will not enhance your speech, then please move your mouth away from the microphone.

Tips to clear your throat: Always have water nearby, use lemon drops, relax the throat, breath from your diaphragm - not your chest.

Feel free to leave a comment on what works for you.
