Clubhouse Moderator Tips II by Roland Da Silva

Roland Da Silva, Economist, Strategist, Entrepreneur, and Moderator in many MedStartr Rooms in Clubhouse summarized our Moderator training session on March 15th, 2021.  Please see his notes below.  Thank you Roland!  You can find Roland on Twitter as @R_Strat_Purpose and on Linked in here.  Some may be somewhat redundant with the ones I wrote out here, but this has a few more thoughts and is organized in a brief, topical format, so read both!  We both just summarized input from the MedStartr Moderators, a group of amazing folks.  You can find the MedMods running rooms all day and night in the MedStartr Healthcare Innovation Club on Clubhouse and tweeting with the Hashtag #MedMods.
