5% of annual meetings have panel discussions – and it’s a fifty-fifty proposition they are any good at all! Expectations decrease dramatically when your attendees walk in and see the traditional draped head-table with microphones on short stands. There are sooooo many other ways to have a stimulating conversation!
It’s time to make a change. You can be that change. If you want to improve your skills as a panel moderator, or be the most brilliant panelist on stage, I suggest viewing a number of these videos to get you started. They are quick, powerful, and provided by some of the best panel moderators out there!
You can pick and choose, or binge-watch a few tips all at once – they are completely free! And if you like what you see, please say so, like it, or share it. It’s always nice to get a little feedback!
You can watch them on a YouTube Playlist, or view them in the form of an article here.
