Our Moderators

Our Moderators guide participants through the Program of their choice, creating a space where the discussion and debate taking place promotes interaction, reflection, and moral courage. Presiding over each Program without bias or influence, our Moderators draw on their vast wealth of experience across many different industries, roles and walks of life to promote ethical dialogue between participants.
