Dear hive, please help me brainstorm as I am feeling stuck. In a couple of weeks, I will have a job interview for project manager position at university (I am already a project manager now but at a different university). The invite to the interview says that I will have to give the interview panel a short tutorial (up to ten minutes) on anything really to check my "ability to effectively engage and communicate to stakeholders within the University" (whatevs). The letter then says "suitable examples include a card trick, folding a napkin, speaking a sentence in a language other than English or any other interesting (and entertaining!) subject".The tutorial can be about anything that can be reasonably demonstrated within an office environment, and I will have to bring any necessary materials with me. I am feeling very un-creative and stuck, help me get unstuck please!
