Moderating

Home > Moderating

As a well-known moderator in Europe, I bring my presentation and interviewing skills together to make for lively discussions and engagement with the audience. I have covered topics as diverse as migration housing crises and over-fishing in Thailand. As a well-known and experienced moderator, I am comfortable speaking off-the-cuff, hosting or partaking in debates, delivering presentations, or doing one-on-one stage interviews. 

Thanks to my television and radio experience, I am also very 

comfortable with hybrid or online-only events. I have used dozens of different online platforms and worked in studios across Europe to create the content and feel that organisers’ want.

I relish the interaction with a live audience — whether at a small round-table or a conference hall of thousands. My delivery and interviewing skills come together to make for lively discussions and real engagement with the audience. 

I am also able to work with conference organisers to get the most out of any panel, no matter what the knowledge level of attendees. I also like to use live tweeting and social media to generate an online buzz around any sort of event.
