In this decade long journey of being a panelist, I want to share what it truly means to host a panel. Even if you, yourself have hosted panels or if you've never hosted one or even thought about it. This is an insight into all the hard work that goes into hosting a panel. If you have questions about anything I will gladly answer to the best of my ability. But I feel like some people don't understand how hard some panelist work to make sure their panel goes smoothly. And I'd like to shed some light on that hard work. I hope you'll come & listen, ask questions of your own & in the end find some kind of understanding of what it truly means to host a panel.
