“Judith did a fabulous job moderating our Connected Ink event at the Umspannwerk, Alexanderplatz in Berlin on September 3, 2016. Judith guided the participants through the conference program in a charming and pleasant way, bridging perfectly between the various international speakers. We were very impressed by her extremely professional preparation and interest in becoming so familiar in the field of digital ink; that it seemed as if she had been working in this industry for many years. We would love to work with Judith again in the future.”

Stefan Kirmse, Senior Vice President Global Brand Management, Wacom

“Judith has moderated the Luxembourg Renminbi Forum for the third consecutive year. Due to her exceptional moderating skills, she intuitively understands how to lead through an entire event in a lively and informative manner. Her conscientious preparation of very complex topics has served as helpful entries into the panels and has added immense value to the discussions. Finally, Judith’s joyful character puts people – attendees, as well as us as an organiser – at ease and makes it a pleasure to work with her.”

Nicolas Mackel, CEO, Luxembourg for Finance

“The Asia-Pacific Committee of German Business worked together with Judith Bogner as a moderator in a panel discussion of the APA’s Indo-German Business Summit at the Hannover Messe 2015. Keynote Speakers in the Summit were German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

 In the panel discussion following the keynote speeches, Judith Bogner proved her excellent moderating skills. She structured the panel very efficiently and enabled the coverage of the most relevant topics connected to the new approach of the Indian government connected to “Make in India”. Her well prepared and insightful questions allowed an in-depth debate. Judith Bogner led the discussion in a manner that allowed panellists to contribute equally and with relevant quotes to the discussion. Perspectives of the speakers were contrasted effectively. During the preparation, the collaboration with Judith Bogner proved to be extremely pleasant and confident at all times. She highly contributed to the great success of this Business Summit.”

Friedolin Strack, Managing Director, APA – Asia-Pacific Committee of German Business

“In September 2011, we hosted our annual client conference in Munich on the subject of “Alternative Investments and New Technologies: Innovation Drivers in Institutional Investment”. Based on her long years of experience as financial and business news presenter for Bloomberg, we invited Judith Bogner to lead the panel discussion on the topic “Paradigm Change in Alternative Investment – New Perspectives on the Concept of Growth and Return”. She came thoroughly well prepared and moderated an interesting exchange of thoughts with ease and charm, while maintaining the highest professional standard. Her efficient and entertaining moderation more than exceeded our expectations and we wholeheartedly recommend her services.”

Jörg Ambrosius, Executive Vice President,  State Street Bank GmbH

“In November 2010 over 200 bankers from more than 60 countries met in The Hague during FMO’s conference on the Future of Banking. Based on her work for Bloomberg we asked Judith to host the conference. It was great to see Judith working in direct contact with the audience, visibly enjoying and creating a lively interaction. Her background in international business and finance ensured that the discussions and interviews were sharp and to the point. Moreover, next to the professionalism that she brought, her personal charm lightened up a conference that was dominated by middle aged male attendees. Up to today, when meeting with clients, they continue to ask us whether the event will be repeated. I honestly believe that Judith’s role was crucial in making the conference such a memorable event for our clients and ourselves.”

Ruurd Brouwer, Director Financial Institutions, FMO – Dutch Development Bank

“Luxembourg for Finance is the Agency for the development of the Luxembourg financial centre and organiser of the Luxembourg Financial Forum, an event to which guests are personally invited by the Prime Minister. In this context, we confirm that we had the opportunity of working with Judith Bogner. On four occasions she moderated a round table discussion at the Forum and from year to year we were very particular in our request to Bloomberg to let us have Judith in this role.

The round tables moderated by Judith were on the following topics:

Forum 2007: Regulatory Frameworks for Global Finance – Opportunities and Challenges

Forum 2008: Financial Markets: Trapped in a Global Crisis?

Forum 2009: The Future Role of Finance: Creating Value for the Real Economy

Forum 2010: Are New Financial Practices Showing the Way?

Judith has a lively manner of moderating a debate and demonstrated mastery of a range of financial topics. She was well prepared on each occasion and moderated the panels with skill. She was also diligent in attending the formal receptions to which she added value as ambassadress for Bloomberg. We were always impressed by the job Judith did and have no hesitation in recommending her. She is serious, methodic and extremely effective in her work, and her engaging personality has made her a friend of Luxembourg for Finance.”

Fernand Grulms, CEO Luxembourg for Finance
