Abstract: Many astronomy societies are focussed on observing the sky rather than theorizing about it. Consequently, visiting lecturers who discuss theoretical astrophysics may struggle to motivate their audience. Here, I will present strategies to improve this connection, particularly for a diverse society membership. Further, the monthly attendance at society lectures may vary significantly. Hence, I will suggest ways in which the lecturer can remain flexible and adaptable regardless of the attendance.
