Panels & Debates
What are the characteristics of a Panel or Debate?
A panel or debate is an excellent choice as either an element of a larger event, or as the focal point around which you are building an event. The conversational, educated, and impassioned discussion that either program will evoke – not just from participants, but from audience members as well – is attention holding, enlightening, and inspiring all at once. With such diversity of thought, views are challenged and audiences are given a more comprehensive view of the complexities of an issue.
At APB, we do all of the work for you. Because we have such an intimate understanding of our speakers and their points of view and areas of expertise, and because we know whose styles complement each other on stage, all you need to tell us is the topic around which you wish to build a panel or debate and we’ll provide you with speaker options. From ethics in business or healthcare quality to industry specific happenings to the evolution of hip-hop or the state of R&B today, we know which combination of speakers will keep the energy charged and the conversation rolling.
