The Intelligent Talk Show

Have you ever wished there was a way to spice up those important – but often boring – panel discussions at your association or company meeting? Now there is: Recently some of your fellow meeting professionals have retired that drab, draped table with the squeaky microphones and the hunched over panelists. Instead, they have introduced an exciting new format, produced and hosted by Robert B. Tucker, that we refer to as "The Intelligent Talk Show." Panelists become "guests" on a "live" show and are more animated, lively and better prepared to get their message across. Guests are more willing to tackle the tough issues that create industry buzz, and keep attendees coming back next year.
