I am loaded, with a presentation to get done tomorrow, but somehow I still want to jot down few unimportant things on what I’ve been doing these days. 😀
I attended a convention yesterday, Consumer Convention (Konvensyen Pengguna). I missed the first day, but I came on the second day, which was filled with presentations and a forum as the closing event. The presentation was informative (but like the other convention I attended before, the proposal was not so government friendly, it was not possible, but it’s difficult – borrow PoP’s statement), so I rested my case on those presentations.
What attracted me more was the way the moderator did her thing during the forum session. I fell in deep preference towards her performance, I wish I could be her, one day! She inspired me so much. I was busy jotting down her qualities when a participant sat next to me mumbled “kau tulis apa dik? bersungguh benar?”
I just smiled and showed her what I took note on, it was 9 qualities on being a good moderator! instead of taking notes on what important issues, yeah, there I was, writing down the criteria! OMG! She smiled, with a disbelief face. Apalah budak ni! Haha. I thought I observed the madame quite good. So here’s the criteria;
- well knowledge in that area;
- good listener;
- good command in English or any language you are in;
- berbudi bahasa, not provoking;
- good reviewer;
- know the panels and their job/issues background;
- good contact with the panels and audiences;
- take note on prime point and digest it as the panels talk; and
- know how to encourage the panels, (in case they got stuck or blank~which is rare)
One thing, right now I am preparing an overview on Logistics Industry in Malaysia, that’s why I said I have lots to study! I am reading the 300++ pages of things on the logistics development to come out with the simplest presentation! Wish me lucks!
Till then, have a nice day you guys!
