Diverse moderator profiles for every event

Our team of moderators is as diverse as they are skilled. Ranging from journalists to mood makers, each moderator brings a unique approach to the table. They excel in making meetings more fun, more effective, and above all, more worthwhile. This diversity is crucial, especially when moderating an event in complex environments like EU institutions in cities such as Brussels, Strasbourg, Frankfurt am Main, and Luxembourg.

Training and coaching - elevating moderation skills

Beyond providing moderators, we are passionate about nurturing new talents in the field. Our workshops, training, and coaching sessions are designed to help aspiring and experienced moderators alike. We focus on teaching how to design meetings that are both more effective and more enjoyable, taking your moderation skills to the next level.

Innovative meeting design - our approach

Our extensive experience in meeting design allows us to create effective, interactive, and energetic formats. We believe that every part of a meeting should contribute to its overall success. Our designs are creative, with a perfect balance of various elements, such as structured vs. chaotic and emotional vs. rational. This balance is vital in achieving the desired end result.

Participant-centric meetings - our philosophy

We advocate for a participant-centric approach, moving away from traditional, speaker-oriented meetings. We design our formats to ensure that every participant feels involved and engaged. This approach is particularly effective in settings like EU institutions, where diverse participant engagement is key.

The formula for success

We believe that the success of a meeting or event lies in the combination of a clear objective, a perfect format, and a suitable moderator. Even the best moderator cannot salvage a poor format. Hence, our focus is on maximizing these three elements to ensure the most effective outcomes.

Work formats - a blend of tradition and innovation

Our work formats range from traditional to innovative, depending on what is most effective for the event. We continuously develop new formats, ensuring that our moderators have a variety of tools at their disposal. This flexibility is crucial in adapting to the diverse needs of events, especially in multi-cultural settings like EU institutions.
