I managed to go thoroughly out of scope of their syllabus for the module I guest lectured on, but they were roundly impressed and happy. They kept clapping for me after my session, I thought they were just been courteous. Then after another session with a separate batch, it became obvious that they were genuinely clapping in appreciation. My host had to make them stop clapping, and they resumed after a while.
It was a very pleasant experience for me. And they have requested I come back again and again. I will try to play hard to catch, learned that from the ladies. They were a very pleasant audience. Gave me attention like they paid me directly and needed value for their money ('cos that's usually why my training participants give me rapt attention).
I had better start pitching Harvard Business School for guest lecturing slot. What have I to lose? I might even gain a nice "get lost" reply. It will do me some good, too much praises isn't very good. One need to find some disappointment to balance it all.
