I was recently given the fantastic opportunity to participate in two outstanding panels and share center stage with some of our most decorated peers in the benefits Industry.  The experience was transformative for me personally and reinforced the obligation I feel we all have to elevate our collective impact to those we advise.

I play moderator and inquisitor often and I’ve even started hosting a virtual discussion this year that tackles our social impact inside the health plan industry. As an organizer or panel moderator, all the hard work is done pre-event when structuring a set of compelling personalities and topics that balance the right mixture of potential wheels-off commentary voices for infotainment, alongside the topic curation to stimulate cerebral engagement. That is a whole art form I participate in regularly — and increasingly less fearlessly, thanks to practice and repetition.

Occupying not the seat of the moderator, but the seat of the panelist and the talking head who must provide energy and perspectives to engage the listener is a totally different perspective. It is, of course, comforting that you have other voices that carry an equal load of that responsibility, but there is also the pressure to tastefully let your freak flag fly.
