ENGAGING, INFORMATIVE EVENTS


As a well-known and experienced moderator, I am comfortable speaking off-the-cuff, hosting or partaking in debates, delivering presentations, or doing one-on-one stage interviews. I broke into moderating in Brussels following a television and radio career, and relish the interaction with a live audience — whether at a small round-table or a conference hall of thousands. My delivery and interviewing skills come together to make for lively discussions and real engagement with the audience. Although primarily focussed on tech, security and EU policy issues, I have covered covered topics as diverse as the refugee crisis, Brexit and over-fishing in Thailand. I am also able to work with conference organisers to get the most out of any panel, no matter what the knowledge level of attendees. I also like to use live tweeting and social media to generate an online buzz around any sort of event.

RATE GUIDELINES

Panel moderation: circa €800
Half day: €1500 – €1900
Full day: €2500 – €3000
Includes all preparation, liaising with organisers, participants etc.

I understand that NGOs and smaller charities may not have this budget,
if so, contact me directly to work out a discount.

SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS

I also speak at events on subjects I am passionate about, in particular Disinformation in the Digital Age; Copyright Reform; The Right to Privacy; and Whistleblower Protection.

As these are issues I care about, I do not charge a speaker’s fee, rather a nominal honorarium to cover my time and expenses.

Jen has a real passion for technology and policy and brings the right mix of knowledge and wittiness to the job that keeps discussions interesting and lively while pinpointing issues that matter. We had Jen moderate a book presentation followed by a discussion with the author on the impact of technology on society and she turned out to be a perfect choice. She is sharp, engaging and well-informed, strikes the right notes and knows how to move discussions forward.

EUROPEAN DATA PROTECTION SUPERVISOR (EDPS)

Jennifer is a very knowledgeable and professional journalist in ICT. I’ve seen her moderating several different panels and once she agreed to moderate a difficult panel in an event I contributed to organise. In all and on that occasion in particular, she managed to steer the discussion in the most interesting direction. Always with a pinch of witty good humor. The audience was delighted and the organisation very satisfied.
