Declan was an engaging and charming host. He clearly took the time to get to grips with, what can sometimes be, complex issues.He has a calm, clear and engaging presence and set just the right tone: as an audience we felt we were in good hands. Timings, housekeeping announcements; reminders to use Twitter etc - all done very well. He never let proceedings drag: he kept speakers, panels and the conference as a whole going at a good pace. He was clearly aware and in command of all aspects - for example, he carefully used the speakers names to help the sound guys.Declan had a command of the subject matter which led him to pose just the right type of questions, be a little bit provocative, on occassion - and also follow-up on points raised by speakers themselves. He engaged the audience very well - both through our audience engagement platform and raised hand questions. He made sure each speaker got equal airtime while keeping the conversation flowing.All in all, a very professional chairperson and we would be happy to recommend him for other similar events.
