Moderating a public speaking event is not easy. It is a skill that can be learned, a skill that can make the difference between a good evening and a boring one.
Last week at Hamburg International Speakers we had the opportunity to train our moderation skills in a workshop conducted by Jens.
First we discussed some important strategies in moderation from handling late comers in a meeting up to introducing a speaker by building a connection between the audience and the speaker. Then, we put our knowledge to practice. Everyone prepared a moderation situation and not only presented his approach on stage but of course got valuable feedback how to improve.
Special thanks to Jens who organized and moderated this workshop very well and of course thanks to every participant for the interactive workshop.
See you on 18th of May for our next meeting!
