Making policy sexy and newsy
As a reporter, a broadcast journalist and a moderator, I bring the sharpness of TV debates, the last-minute development and the deep knowledge of the policy and politics of into conferencing, with an eye on the public interest and another on the decision-makers, to make policy sexy for everyone.
As a journalist, her favourite part of the jobs is being able to learn about a new subject every day. She imprints that passion and eagerness and the ability to quickly understand the importance of a story and making it simple and accessible for everyone into her moderating skills, asking the right questions to get the best out of every speaker.
Beatriz started as a reporter for a small publication in Spain and grew her portfolio over the years to become a regular political commentator for BBC, a correspondent for the Luxembourg Times and a casual radio and TV reporter. She has covered a wide variety of issues in her career from the refugee crisis in Greece to the work towards the completion of the Banking Union and the latest developments on the Brexit saga. She brings the sharpness of live debates and the attention to the detail into her moderations.
In a globalized world, all themes are interconnected one way or another. As an EU reporter, Beatriz aims at putting issues into a wider perspective, bringing into the conversation the different aspects and national nuances to better understand the context.
excellent on so many levels
Beatriz's preparation is excellent on so many levels. She brings knowledge and freshness, attention to details and positive energy, and it is always a pleasure to work with her.
great experience for the participants
She is adept at teasing out the key points of any topic and quickly getting to the core of speakers' arguments in an engaging style.
pivotal for the success of our event
Beatriz was able to bring together their different inputs by providing accurate wrap-ups and directing the conversation to the speakers able to highlight different points of views. Her ability to grasp the (somewhat technical and detailed) content quickly and the ability to steer the conversation and maintain cohesion and direction of the discussion has been pivotal for the success of our event.
"Beatriz is the ideal moderator. She combines an in-depth knowledge of policy with a relaxed and chatty style, putting panellists at ease. But she also knows exactly when to ask challenging questions!"
