While giving your lecture, report your topic to the GTO and then proceed. Look into the eyes of group members and not the GTO while giving lecturette.
While preparing make sure you have taken the above points in consideration.
Make a prior preparation of one topic which you like in case that you cannot speak on any of the topics given then ask for permission from GTO to talk on your topic.
Just before the actual task starts the GTO asks for a brief introduction of all candidates one by one in the following format,
Schooling and education
Currently what are you doing
Where are you from and hobbies?
Cover all these points in 45 seconds and do not stumble anywhere, have a good profound fluent voice, look at your friends and do not make any hand gestures. Limited hand gestures can be made at the time of lecture but not many.
Don’t get tense and panic while delivering lecture instead keep a smiling face. Duration is per candidate = 3 mins, total about 30 -35 mins.
