Master of Ceremonies
The importance of the role of the MC / Event host is often underestimated.
A great event requires, inspirational speakers, interesting panels and an experienced MC to keep up the rhythm, and energy of the event and make sure that both the speakers and the audience have an optimal experience.
The MC helps to prepare the event beforehand, knows how to put the spotlight on the speakers, and help them to feel at ease while making sure the event stays lively, interactive and on time.
A Panel Moderator creates panels in close collaboration with the panelists, facilitates discussions, makes sure the event stays on time.

« I highly recommend working with Johanna. She was Master of Ceremonies and panel moderator for the scientific conference 'Towards a chemical pesticide-free agriculture' held in Dijon, as part of the EU French Presidency. Thanks to Johanna, the day was run with precision for the content, timing and all organizational issues, on highly political topics. All this led to a conference that was unanimously appreciated by all attendees.»
