“I engaged Hilary Fordwich to moderate the National Defense Industrial Association’s 2nd Annual Cyber Security Month Conference this past October. As the lead for the project, I couldn’t be happier with Hilary’s professional preparation, engaging dialogue with the panelists, and her supreme confidence and presence before an audience of industry leaders as well as the press. From Congressmen, Cyber Security CEOs, to the Defense press, Hilary is an outstanding ‘Ringmaster’ managing our conference with ease and grace. I only hope I can enlist her fabulous skills in the future.”

John Toomer, Director, Intelligence, Information and Cyber Systems, Government Operations, The Boeing Company

“I consider it fortunate that fate led our paths to cross. There are very few who could have moderated this event with your finesse and your ability to insert pertinent and relevant quotes and content. We are working on a date for next year and you are absolutely our first choice as moderator.”

Tony Barnett, Tysons Chamber & Business Development Manager, Leros Technologies Corp

“Hilary…you are the one that did a great job, I thought you were able to keep the audiences interest by moderating what was being said and what was not being said. The cyber security field is huge and in a few minutes I thought you were able to make the topic flow and generate interest, as evidenced by the half dozen attendees that came afterwards and asked me follow up questions. It was a real pleasure meeting you and working with you. You made us panelists shine.”

Mario F. Lopez-Gomez, Information Systems Manager, U.S Department of Justice

“How pleased I was with the way you moderated the Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce first ever Cyber Security conference. While the panelists clearly possessed extensive knowledge of the critical cyber security issues facing the country, your own knowledge of the issues and the insightful lead-in questions you raised encouraged additional questions and meaningful participation from the attendees. As a result, the session was highly informative. Thanks for the role you played. Many people I spoke with after the conference voiced how impressed they were particularly with the way you ran the entire conference and how you conducted it, managing to be so inclusive.”
