    I like these aspects of the submission, and they should be retained:

    • Topic and overall content

    I think the submission could be improved by:

    • Reducing text on some of the slides - remove or replace long sentences with phrases
    • Include some short activities - individual thinking or discussion at the table

      Thanks for your review comments. I am glad you like the overall topic and agenda. I had presented this in a recent conference and during the break participants spoke about their experiences and how they could related this topic to their organization journey.

      Agree that some of the text can be replaced with some graphics or tag lines.

      For activity part, in general my style of presentation is where I ask participants about their opinion, what they think about a word/topic etc before explaining to them. This encourages lot of conversation during the session.

      Considering it's only for 45 mins, including activity of 10-15 mins may be challenging. However I would give enough time for participants to talk about their ideas/implementations/thoughts/challenges for each behavior during the session.

        I agree with Sanjay, I like the content. Remember though, a gathering is big, with four or five rows of tables. How can you ensure that people in the last row will be able to interpret and understand your slides?

        Thanks for quick clarification.

        I meant short 5 min activity, but if you are planning to engage audience through questions and their experience sharing, it is perfectly fine.
