Who is Mr. Moderator? Paul is more than just a professional moderator, he’s also an educator and mentor. With over 35 years in the telecom industry, Paul has worked with some of the top companies such as Cisco, SGI, SonicWall and Brocade. After unexpectedly retiring in 2018, Paul set out to explore how he could apply his expertise and experience. It didn’t take long for Paul to make a name for himself. Since 2021 he has been moderating for big names such as Ecamm, Doc Rock and Adrian Salisbury. He was able to moderate events ranging from hundreds of attendees to over 10,000 attendees! His hard work earned him a place on the Ecamm Academy team. Paul is a frequent moderator at conferences and summits. You can find him at upcoming streams for Ecamm Live, Doc Rock, Adrian Salisbury’s Ecamm Live Academy and Take One Tech. He is also the moderator for India Delgado, Tom Buck, and Matthew O’Brien, Mr. Camera Junkie and others. Paul believes that knowledge should be shared – so he created an online course in moderating, a 2,000+ blocked word list to protect streams and a list of known spammers. He is passionately working on his own Moderator Certification Program too!
