What is the difference between a conference facilitator and a conference moderator?
First things first is clearing up the role of a conference facilitator; as this is commonly confused with a moderator we thought it would be best to set the record straight so you can hire the perfect conference facilitator for your event. Here we have highlighted some of the differences between the two positions.
- Moderate or Facilitate – The clue is in the title, a moderator will set a limit on proceedings, making sure it is within the limits and kept on point. Whereas a facilitator will encourage further discussion and to keep everyone talking.
- Active or Passive – A facilitator will take a much more active role than a moderator; where a moderator would be a lot more invisible at monitoring the flow of the event, a facilitator would be more hands on at making sure everything stays on track.
- Authoritative or Informative – Another aspect of a facilitator is the control, their presence will ensure that everyone contributes to a beneficial and inclusive conversation whereas a moderator will have a more provisional role; offering up information but not having complete control over the proceedings.
Overall a conference facilitator is more of a visible leader, whereas a moderator offers more guidance from a less central role, though remains important to the success of the event.
