"You are millennials, do you want to be near or far, long or fast?" Said Sandi.

Bang Sandi's offer to get closer was responded by student participants by immediately running closer to the stage while sitting cross-legged.

According to Sandi, the class room model, back row, is a 1500s style.

"So the classroom system now has to start changing. By getting closer we will be both closer and mutually interactive, "he said.

Regarding young entrepreneurs, Sandi said that it was millennial time to create jobs with entrepreneurship. According to him, the millennial market has enormous opportunities

"At the moment, who understands who millennial is the most, who knows whose millennial tastes are? Millennials want to be fast or want to be instant?"
