How to Organize and Present a Moderated Panel

Walter Betts, Emily Billings, and Carolyn Booker

How many times have you attended a panel at a conference, only to find a series of unrelated micro-presentations with little useful content?

This webinar is especially intended for program planners who are orchestrating panel programs at the 2017 TLA Conference, but the ideas can be used by any event planner.
