“Rick and his colleagues have chaired sessions at European Green Week over many years and have covered a wide range of topics and environmental issues including climate change, resource efficiency, green economy, transport and energy, water and air quality, amongst many others. Their approach is very professional; they are supportive in helping to prepare sessions and liaise with speakers, always ensuring that speakers keep to timeslots as well as guiding the discussions skilfully. I have no hesitation in recommending Moderators Europe.
A better team of professional moderators would be hard to find!”

Pamela Weir, Green Week Coordinator, DG Environment, European Commission
