In the past, I’ve shared what it means to be on a panel and the benefits of doing this as a thought leader and speaker.


Being a panelist is a great way to get your toes wet! You don't have to memorize anything. You don't have to come prepared. You just come and allow the moderator to take care of you. 


And today, I want to talk about what it means to be a moderator and how this can also be an important part of your journey as a speaker. 


In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • My experience moderating a panel at the Chelsea film festival here in NYC
  • The importance of getting to know your speakers before you moderate a panel
  • An easy way to make your speakers feel safe and connected to you
  • How to steer the conversation while also elevating the panelists
