My theory of Panel Discussions
Gene FrantzTI Principal Fellow, Futurist and Business Development Manager, DSP
In a previous Blog (here) I discussed the panel discussion that I moderated at the DSP Workshop in Sedona, Arizona. So this is a follow on to that Blog with an explanation of my theory on panel discussions.The fundamental principal that I have for a panel discussion is that it is purely done for entertainment. There should never be an expectation that anything valuable will come out of it. Given this principal, here are my rules of engagement:
Well, that is the way I moderate panels. By now you have either made up your mind to invite me to be the moderator at your next conference, or have made a mental note to never ask me to be a moderator.There is one flaw in my rules. Every once in a while something good actually comes out of the session. That is what happened this year at the DSP workshop.
