Ryan Ing – Professional Speaker Moderator

If you are reading this page, you are likely an Event Organizer hosting a Speaker Panel event and are curious – how can I make my event be amazing for the attendees?

How can I make the presentation engaging enough so that attendees don’t lose interest after 15 minutes?

How can I create an event that people will speak highly about to their friends, and want to attend again in the future?

Average ModeratorRyan – The “Talk show Host Experience”
Allows the panelists to self-introduce themselvesHosts a pre-interview with the panelists prior to the event to get to know them, then gives a highly compelling introduction at the event
Asks the same question to each moderatorAsks different, tailored questions, to each panelist
Sticks to “safe” topicsAsks “controversial” questions in a graceful way, revealing the intimate facts that the audience really wants to hear
Allows panelists to finish their answers, even if they know its boring for the audienceI will cut off a panelist from speaking in the most polite way possible, if I feel they are talking for too long
Sticks to asking open-ended questions e.g. “What is the biggest lesson in your career?”Uses both open-ended and close-ended questions.

As an example, look at reporter Steve Paikin, one of Canada’s best journalist and interviewer. He always asks the most DIFFICULT questions
