If you’ve decided on a moderated Q&A style format, the next step is determining whether you’ll need a host. But first, it’s important to understand what a host really does. More than just asking questions, a host is truly the cornerstone of your event. They manage the flow, conversation, and audience participation in a way that is completely frictionless. They’re also an invaluable resource when it comes to post-event networking, designing questions that will facilitate connection, yes, but also get people thinking—long after the event is over.
At The Lavin Agency, we work with world-class speakers who have moderated hundreds of Q&A’s, fireside chats, and broadcast experiences. They’re the people who really think about communication: why it matters, how we can improve, and what the business objectives are. Don’t underestimate their contribution to your event.
