Moderator

Hollis moderates a wide range of events both large and small. She has been a moderator, panelist and keynote speaker for many years, taking the stage (in many countries and in several languages) for topics ranging from poetry, literature, film and photography… to human rights, education, politics and parenting… to business, innovation, sports and artificial intelligence.

Her style is engaging and fluid, with speakers and audiences ranging from the very famous to the very young.
