      “Leading the Way - Facilitating a Discussion or Panel”

      When you are leading a discussion or are a panel host, you have to be conscious of more things than if you are just a presenter. In this 90 minute masterclass, Barbara will share tips on how to structure it efficiently, how to “take care” of the people in the discussion/panel that they are recognized, respected and heard and that those listening stay engaged throughout. How do you steer the discussion if there are strong personalities present and enable all persons to express themselves and keep the discussion moving? The “live” versus “virtual” delivery also require extra attention and will be discussed in this presentation. There will be time for Q&A to ask questions or share experiences of the Do’s and Don’ts of facilitation.
