A round of meetings can be stultifyingly dull. Or they can be sparkling, inspiring, entertaining and surprising.
Much of the outcome is in the hands of the talks moderator. And that is why I love moderating talks so much, since I was allowed to take my own first steps in the subject by working on my own TV talk show.
Understand your guests and understand your audience
Being able to empathize with people is probably the most important prerequisite for moderating successful rounds of talks.
Whether you are speaking from the vantage point of well-researched interviews or are speaking in a charming conversational tone, the point is to always to cast your counterpart as a sympathetic human being by eliciting various aspects of his personality.
As a professional presenter for talk shows, I also count preparation as an important part of my task and will be happy to assist you with planning and moderating your talk event.
Do you have any questions about your planned talk event?
I would be pleased to advise you – free of charge and without obligation.
