About

Moderator with in-depth-knowledge in current affairs

As a moderator, I am a specialist in my subject areas. As a professional, I put my presence behind the task and think from the perspective of the audience sitting in front of me. I deliberately do it this way because people and their stories really interest me. That’s why I fight for my clients and their matter at hand, see myself as part of the team, translate complex issues and build bridges to the target groups as a moderator – in short: I do identify myself with the challenge. And the subject. But without an ego show.

Passion and ambition

Reading off questionnaires like a reporter or TV presenter? Sure, that’s always possible and part of the professional toolbox- but it’s not my aspiration. I prefer to dig into the details, trying to be as well prepared and as well versed in the subject like my interviewees. The added value of my on-stage-performance comes from that eye level-approach and a very individual personal substance – it´s more like a conversation than an interview in public.

Accompanied by an entertaining touch of dynamic during the conversation, I´m preparing a relaxed atmosphere for the interviewee – and an atmosphere for the audience, you like to stick with and listen to, because you can profit from the knowledge and the experience of the guests on stage. My passion and desire for quick-witted and light-footed dialogues with a sense of timing, paired with a substantial exchange of facts and talking to the heart of the matter. Meeting the expectations of the audience, keeping attention-level high – respecting their limited time: That makes the difference.

Flexibility in moderating, talking and interviewing

Reacting to unforeseen situations, even following up with ‘ big shots’ when they try to dodge specific questions, while keeping an eye on the time frame: That doesn’t cause stress because of that, it’s my favorite discipline. Whereby I prefer to promise less and do more.

More than 25 years of experience in Radio, TV and corporate communication

As a presenter, editor and correspondent, I have many years of experience in the media – with many interfaces and even more international perspectives.
At ARTE France in Paris as Editor-in-Chief of a weekly European program and as a Senior Capital correspondent on German national TV for RTL Nachtjournal. On the corporate side working as responsible press spokesperson for Ferrari and TetraPak. And working as reporter and moderator during the ramp-up of private radio network Radio RPR. All that is based on solid grounds, due to my journalistic-military training at a special operation unit of the German Armed Forces.

…in terms of content, which is important and necessary. On top of that he gives everyone the space to respond without interrupting them. In the end, it still works out that not everyone talks for 10 minutes, and that is quite pleasant.

  guests from state and federal politics in the field of hydrogen and fuel cell technology. With his committed manner, he creates an extremely dynamic discussion atmosphere, in which targeted follow-up questions and quick reactions repeatedly create entertaining moments – an absolute added value for this technically demanding topic! I was very pleased with the extremely positive feedback from both the panel guests and the audience – so I’d be happy to do it again at any time.

sustainability, as it embodies our interest in an honest and open exchange with stakeholders in politics and society. This makes it all the more important to find a politically experienced and substantively competent moderator for this sensitive exchange. After an extremely short lead time, Jürgen Pfeiffer was not only deeply involved in the topic, but above all he always found the right tone to pick up the guests of the event at eye level. As a result, he was able to ensure the constructive nature of the dialog with ease and nonchalance, even in the face of critical questions, without any losers. Each of the participants felt respected in his position and had his say. We will be very happy to work with Jürgen Pfeiffer again.

of facts and contexts is crucial. Steep theses, quick judgments or indignations for problem solutions are rather an obstacle. With Jürgen Pfeiffer we have had a moderator who, beyond show and vanity, did exactly what good moderation is all about: moderating through empathy, steering through knowledge and delivering results through analysis. Jürgen Pfeiffer creates a trustworthy and constructive discussion atmosphere, which brings even very different perspectives and interests into a factual and fair dialogue. Exactly the right moderator for difficult topics and opinionated people!
