  • Experiment with innovative ideas

Simply reading from a piece of paper will make the audience feel bored. Use the images, emoticon, videos in between the theory. Sometimes throw a humor joke in the middle of the conversation.

Create a survey asking about the session, about their future, and their views regarding the next session. In the next session, choose the topic as recommended by the user. Read about the name aloud of that user.
