The perfect host or moderator will make your event seamless.
That is the skill – running the event to time, agenda and navigating any problems efficiently so that your audience does not even notice there was an issue.
Moderating a panel and audience discussion requires authority, skill and complete understading of the topic. Also the ability to question properly and keep the event moving forward. Handling live audience Q&A and controlling the event are essential.
Then there is the connection with the audience, one of the most important traits of your host.
