I do. Because It is polite to say thank you when you hear a good presentation.And by blessing the other person, you can please the other person.I am very happy if I am praised in the opposite position. The compliment of the presentations given over time appreciates the efforts made up to that point. It's also good for me to get feedback on what's good and what's bad. Because it will be greatly involved in the preparation for the next presentation. I feel that it is important to first incorporate the opinions of others in order to make a better presentation or presentation. So, if I have the opportunity to give my opinion to the other person's presentation, I will tell them everything I think. There is definitely time for feedback on individual and group presentations at the university. I never had such a class until I became a college student. This type of lesson is very exciting and you can learn how the other person feels, so it will be a great learning experience. There is time for feedback, so you can spell out your thoughts on the paper or even say on the spot. In terms of society, there are many people who give their opinions on the spot. I think that presentations and other announcements will continue in the future, so I think it will be worthwhile to gain strength from now on. And, celebrating someone can praise the other person's hard work, and at the same time improve the other person's future presentation.

I think you always have to take an opportunity and congratulate your colleagues when they deserved that. Why? Well, each of us likes to receive admiration. Especially when we worked hard. It's a easy way to motivate people and good opportunity to create good team relationships
