"With advice from The Thoughtful Co I was able to go into my first time as a panel moderator with confidence that translated to a successful discussion. After the event the audience complemented how natural the conversation was and how insightful the questions were! The Thoughtful Co not only provided me with general tips for leading a panel but helped build a roadmap of thoughtful questions that related back to the theme of the discussion. I would highly recommend The Thoughtful Co to anyone looking to establish or refine their public speaking and presentation skills."
