How to be a great moderator

Guy Kawasaki has some more words of wisdom for moderating a panel of people.

  • Don’t over-prepare the panelists
  • Do prepare yourself in advance
  • Never let panelists use PowerPoint
  • Never let panelists use anything special
  • Make them introduce themselves in thirty seconds
  • Break eye contact with the panelists
  • Make everyone else look smart
  • Stand up for the audience
  • Involve the audience
  • Seize the day

I love the one where he says not to ever let panelists use Powerpoint. Powerpoint is the DEEEVIL. Really. More details here.
