Jayne has considerable experience facilitating/moderating events large and small – conferences, road shows, seminars and awards ceremonies. She excels at gauging the tone of an event, tailoring her content and performance accordingly and making a connection with the audience. She ad-libs skilfully and, after years on live television, thrives on the ‘seat of pants’ nature of some events.
She handles Q & A sessions, panel discussions, interactive technology and one-to-one interviews with skill. She puts interviewees at their ease or through their paces, as required – enabling them to shine while ensuring that the objectives of the event are met. And Jayne’s events always finish on time!
“@jconstantinis awesome conference moderator –
silky smooth voice & incisive comments ”,

While she sees her role as supporting actress rather than leading lady, delegate feedback suggests that she is a real asset to an event. Corporate clients say she adds real, tangible value to their team.
With her background in corporate and financial PR and as a business reporter on BBC World, Jayne is an ideal choice for corporate and financial services clients. She has hosted a number of live events and broadcasts for organisations in this sector including Barclays, Legal & General, Lloyds TSB, NFU Mutual and Prudential.
“you were mind-blowingly brilliant!”,
Jayne is increasingly being asked to present her own content at live events (sometimes in addition to moderating). Her area of expertise is communication skills and she is a leader in her field, based on 20 years training individuals and groups (see Training page for more). She speaks on topics such as
‘Present like an Olympic athlete’,
‘Developing an effective and authentic communication style’,
‘Confidence is not a trick’.
Her style is lively, engaging and inspiring.
She delivers this content via a presentation or workshop-style. In both cases, the material is highly practical and of immediate use to the delegates. Every presentation is tailored to the audience and made relevant to their needs/experience. Jayne consistently scores extremely highly in delegate feedback. They value her expertise and insights but also her humour and accessibility.
Examples of work
The best thing that happened to our conference was a friend recommending Jayne Constantinis. Jayne was brilliant from the very beginning of our engagement! She was professional, keen to understand the nature and content of the event and was supremely pleasant to work with.
In addition to her skilful performance on the day, when she seamlessly transitioned from keynote to panel to interview as if she knew each presenter personally, Jayne also added value by making planning suggestions and, herself, delivering a mini-workshop which was most enthusiastically received. In fact, out of 5 keynote speakers (and 15 panellists), Jayne scored the highest in our audience feedback.
Her expertise, pride in her work and passion for delivering top notch service were greatly valued – not just by the organisers but, more importantly, by the audience! For a successful conference or speaking event, I couldn’t recommend a better moderator and overall contributor than Jayne Constantinis.
I just wanted to thank you for proving to the XX team that a good facilitator is essential for events of this type. I really appreciate how much time you invested in their success. They will have to work hard to find anyone who does such a thorough job as you in future!
Jayne offers more than other presenters/facilitators who just look good reading autocue in a studio. For us she handled a complex event with a sensitive subject and tight timetable. She excelled at thinking on her feet under pressure; being flexible and proactive at problem solving. She interpreted the tone of the event perfectly, connected with the audience and added real value with scripting. I would trust Jayne with any event which needs skilful communication.
