Professional panel moderator, Kristin Arnold asked this question of Jeffrey Hayzlett, a global business celebrity, speaker, best-selling author, and Chairman of C-Suite Network, home of the world’s most trusted network of C-Suite leaders:
How do you know you’ve done a good job?
Kristin: How do you know you’ve done a good job as a panel moderator?
Jeffrey: Usually it’s from the engagement, the tweets, the things like that. Typically I like to see a couple people rush up from after the, audience that tells me there were some engagement there and usually I get a little bit from when I’m back in the back of the stage and they said that was a tough question. Uh, that was. And, and, and they’re still excited and they still want to carry on the conversation. That, to me, says I’ve done my job.
