Moderating a large-scale live broadcast for a global banking group
Citi needed skilled moderation support to ensure that each section was introduced appropriately, and that interviews and Q&A were handled with journalistic rigour. One of Bladonmore’s directors, Ben Shore – a former BBC correspondent – was selected to host the summit. His work included supporting the speakers to prepare their sections and establish frameworks for Q&A that brought out their key messaging.
Over the two-day event Ben was the face of the summit, explaining the context for each panel, asking questions of the speakers and taking questions from the 120 online attendees and relaying them to the spokespeople.
The summit was a great success for Citi. It generated a significant amount of coverage of all aspects of its business, from M&A to corporate activity in emerging markets, to the private bank’s analysis of global markets.
Several quotes from Ben’s interviews were used by global media outlets in their stories and the Citi team was delighted with the flow and atmosphere of the event.
