Hosting & Moderating

Whether at a conference, festival, summit or unconventional gathering, I love facilitating conversations that keep audiences engaged, reflective and in action.  My goal as a host and moderator is to make sure that attendees not only enjoy the experience, but make meaningful connections while there.
