I'm based in Brussels and moderate conferences all over Europe. Subject areas can vary enormously: one week it might be health or consumer affairs another week the European Investment Bank or innovation and entrepreneurship. I am a former presenter of Channel Four News in the UK and was a Europe correspondent for both the BBC and GMTV, as well as presenter of European Journal for DeutscheWelle TV. There's no doubt that the moderator sets the tone for the whole conference and I think that working in live TV for years enables me to think on my feet. I like to make conference debates as informal and fast moving as a TV discussion would be. I prepare subjects well, contact speakers before events and work closely with clients.
