Moderating & Mediating
Are you looking for an inspiring and experienced moderator or host for your event?
Timon Meyer has worked as a moderator at the intersection of business, politics, economic development and public administration for more than 15 years. His forte is fostering dialogue in a committed, informed and entertaining way. For Timon, a successful event is all about fruitful interaction with both speakers and the audience.
His recipe is simple: Eloquence, curiosity about people, positions and issues, and an instinct for nuanced, meaningful discussion. This – combined with experience as a strategist at a multinational corporation, as a public sector business promoter, as a community builder for an industry association, and as an entrepreneur and systemic coach, plus fluency in English, German, French and Spanish – adds up to a unique combination of expertise and communication skill.
Timon has served as moderator of numerous cross-sector panel discussions and presentations at conferences, trade fairs and customer events. The focus has generally been on current topics in business and society, with particular emphasis on innovation, digitalization and cutting-edge, disruptive business models. In addition to his role as moderator, Timon is conversant with the latest developments in change, participation and multi-stakeholder processes.
An important, often neglected skillset is conflict resolution. For on some projects, seemingly intractable disagreements do crop up. In such instances, when the parties' ability to reconcile reaches a stumbling block, Timon’s training and gift as a neutral mediator has stood him in good stead. His highly successful method has been to develop, together with the involved parties, joint paths and mutually arrive at solutions for breaking the deadlock and moving forward.
