Looking for a panel moderator?

Hire me to manage your panel from A to Z, so that you don’t need to worry about the content, and can focus on the 100 other things that you also need to take care of as an event organiser.

Have you ever been to a panel where the topic was of no interest to anyone, and the moderator had no idea what the panelists were talking about?

Me too.

I believe that preparation is the key to success, so not only do  I research the speakers and the topic, but I also help the guests to uncover the most impactful parts of their stories. Together we will come with a clear plan on what and when, so that our panellists can confidently share their message, and our audience can leave inspired and equipped with actionable insights.

In all my panels, I strive to create a supportive and inclusive environment, ensuring that all voices are heard. Because of my curiosity and empathy, I often ask the questions that are on everyone’s mind and offer appropriate assistance, helping to guide the conversations towards meaningful insights and solutions.

And wherever I can make the audience laugh, I do too 😊

Selected panels I moderated:

  • “Intersectionality at Work”
  • “Paving the Way for More Women in Tech”
  • “Dual Career Couples”
  • “Turning Good Intentions Into Actions: What Companies Can Do to Accelerate Gender Equality in Business”
  • “Fighting Bias in the Workplace”
  • “Dream, Dare, Do: Starting Before You’re Ready”
  • “Navigating Career Change in Switzerland”

I would be happy to moderate your next panel: in person, virtually or in a hybrid set-up

(I have done it all!)

“Anna Stando has been a wonderful fireside chat speaker at our ‘Female Founders Night’ at Impact Hub Zurich. She had the ability to connect with the audience on a personal level by sharing her own approach to form realistic aspirations and vision for her startup. She is confident and calm in her presence and as the main organiser of the event of BPW Business & Professional Women Switzerland, it was a pleasure to engage with her pre- and post-event. Thanks for the great collaboration!”
