Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Yes, indeed! During podcasts and media interviews, I am often asked these questions:

Over the years, Kristin has talked to a gaggle (which is not quite a google) of meeting organizers about what makes a panel discussion successful.  It basically comes down to four criteria:  1) deliver on the promise, 2) have a scintillating, spontaneous conversation, 3) provoke differences of opinion, and 4) provide takeaway value.  She started collecting all the different ways moderators could move beyond the traditional panel formats – and voila!  The book was born!

  • Why is it “123” ways and not “125” or “over a hundred?”  

Ha!  Originally, I was thinking it was going to be about 99.  That’s a nice number, don’t you think?  But then it kept growing…and by the time the COVID-19 crisis hit, I knew I had to add a whole section on virtual panels and variations to in-person events.  So I capped it at 123 and I’m collecting more for the next book – MORE Ways to Add Pizazz to a Panel Discussion!  BTW, contact me if you have a technique to share!

  • Is that really the correct way to spell “Pizazz”?

Yes, it is!  But you can also spell it with two “z”s e.g. “Pizzazz” – which is how I’ve been spelling it for years.  However, when we commissioned the book cover, it looked like “Pizza”, so we went with one “z” in the middle!

  • Who is Kristin Arnold?

Ostensibly, I am the foremost authority on moderating panel discussions.  I can safely say that no one else has geeked out more over panels than I have.  I’ve been facilitating high stakes meetings and events for close to 30 years while moderating panels from time to time.  In 2014, I was facilitating a high-level roundtable discussion in the afternoon with two back-to-back panels in the morning. It was painful. I still shudder when thinking about it (which I try not to do unless specifically asked about it).

The result of that significant event?  I wanted to offer my client some resources to help him and his team next time.  Imagine my shock when I went to the almighty font of knowledge (aka Google) and found a bunch of blog postings, but nothing definitive on the subject. That’s when I realized that I could make a difference in this small part of the meetings world by creating a body of knowledge about panels.  And so I started my crusade to make all panels lively and informative!
