5 fantastic thoughts there, Stefan.
I always try and arrive early and stay late to get in the extra time with people.
I do, however, rarely "practice" my 40s. I know this is tantamount to heresy for some, but many years as a teacher mean I'm happy being spontaneous so long as I know roughly what I want to get across. It also means that I'm not feeling "off-script" if I want to add anything new and relevant that can help people - I have been known to tell people about recent IT security breaches they should know about during my 40s. Oh, and jokes - if there's time, I'll try and get a one-liner or pun in somewhere.
