”Saying that Annika is a ”good” moderator is like saying that Meryl Streep is a good actress – it doesn’t even begin to describe the skills this person has. It’s that combination of a soft, gentle and bubbling personality with a total control of the event she is moderating. She makes it look easy, chatting with people on stage, helping stressed and nervous speakers feel comfortable, making sure the right questions are being asked and answered. I have moderated a few events myself and know how difficult it is to make it look relaxed. With Annika as moderator, the event has the highest chance of becoming a succes”
