Good quality audio is a priority for your virtual event. You message will get delivered through your voice. Make sure you are heard!
If you're just broadcasting yourself in a room, using an external mic can go a long way.
If you are streaming from a full audio console in a live room, using an auxiliary send so you have separate control from what comes out of the speakers in the room. The key here is: take control of your audio!
If you are streaming from multiple locations, be sure you can have an offline channel of communication for the technician(s) in each location. This could be as simple as a conference call, as advanced as an IP-linked comm system with base stations in each location sync'ed together, and technicians on headset in each location, or somewhere in between.

In most cases, as a presenter you'll be in front of a computer. If you have a headset with a mic, that's a decent option because the headphones will keep the microphone from picking up the sound from your speakers. This will help to eliminate echo and feedback.
In addition to headphones, you can also use an independent USB microphone. A reasonably priced recommendation is the Blue Yeti Nano. (Amazon: $99 USD)
You can also use bluetooth headsets, like the Apple AirPods (Apple: $159 USD). These isolate the sound you need to hear from the microphone as well. A more budget friendly option might be something like the JBL Live 220 (Amazon: $59 USD).
