Panel Moderation: Making Conference Panel Discussions Extraordinary
Kristin Arnold is adept at making ordinary panel presentations powerful through a lively, engaging, audience-centered conversation. As a thought leader in making panels more powerful, she uses her facilitation skills and process techniques to make your panel session into a robust, interesting and lively discussion. She ensures there is audience/ panel participation, the information is useful and the session starts and stops on time.
Kristin knows her panel moderator role is to be the producer/director of your conference panel presentation – and not the star of the program. Your panel presenters and participants are the stars and Kristin makes them look like heroes!
There are no one-size-fits-all meeting plans here. Kristin uses a 4-step process to create and facilitate meetings that are customized to your outcomes, company culture, and the players involved.
Kristin talks with the meeting sponsor and gets crystal clear on the objectives. She’ll help you turn your general ideas into targeted deliverables.
In designing a meeting, Kristin’s goal is to truly “step into the shoes” of the people involved. She goes to great lengths to understand your company’s issues, culture, and unique challenges.
Before the meeting even begins, Kristin solicits the ideas of meeting attendees to discover areas of agreement—and where they don’t agree. She deploys a variety of tools and techniques to gather data, including attendee interviews and web-based surveys.
The result? A meeting uniquely tailored to your group, that engages participants and gets your goals accomplished.
Kristin guides the conversation and keep things high-energy and on track. During the meeting, she captures action steps as they arise. At the end, she confirms any agreed-upon action items that need to be done, and who is accountable for them.
Your meeting is only as good as the actions that come from it. Kristin ensures there’s a structure in place so you can maintain momentum. She provides a quick turnaround of the meeting minutes so the team can take immediate action.
