I was moderating a panel discussion this week when an audience member approached me afterward and asked,
In this case, the answer was, “Yes, the panelists knew about 80% of the questions in advance….why do you ask?”
“Just curious,” was the response. “Ummmm, did it look like the panelists were too scripted?”
“No,” he said. “Just curious.”
Well, that got me thinking about precisely WHEN I consider sharing all (or most) of the curated questions with the panelists.
For this week’s panel, we hit the trifecta! Lawyers, executives, videotaping and a virgin panelist. So that’s why I shared most of the prepared questions in preparation for an amazing panel discussion.
