Erin’s communication skills, knowledge and humility made her the obvious choice to moderate the W20 Summit’s high level ministerial session. She demonstrated her commitment to listening, reading between the lines, articulating the implication of national policies on the lives of real people in the various countries of the globe. Her leadership of that strategic session was key to its success. I knew we made the right choice by inviting her to moderate the critical ministerial session.
