Moderator, European Business Summit
Mr Burns intervened during one-hour sessions with high-level speakers covering a wide range of current issues: the Basic Income Debate, European Economic Diplomacy, Free Trade, US-EU relations, the Future of the European Economy & Euro.
For each session, Mr. Burns knew how to trigger the debate, engage with the audience and make sure each speaker’s point was made. His professionalism, availability and excellent communication skills made it a pleasure to cooperate.

Moderator, OSCE conference
Chris was a well-prepared and highly engaging moderator for our panel on ending sexual violence as a tactic of conflict, under the auspices of the German presidency of the OSCE in 2016. His talk-show style of moderating - conversational, walking between the panel and the audience, encouraging audience participation, challenging the panelists and steering the debate with well-placed questions and background - made the event both memorable and productive.

I have worked together with Chris on many media trainings for different clients (from governments to corporations) and different settings (personalised or group trainings). The results are always astonishingly positive. What is impressive with Chris is that not only can he simulate a very realistic interview environment but he also gives very concrete, constructive and personalised feedback. It is by no accident that every single person who has been media trained by Chris sees concrete improvement within the day. Clients walk out of the trainings more confident, aware and ready to be interviewed.
