If you are looking for topics to talk about, remember the word FORD. Family, Occupation, Recreation and Dreams.
Family could be anything about siblings, parents, pets, etc. How they are going, what are they like, when you last caught up with them.
Occupation can be current or past jobs. Ask about any funny stories or coworkers during days. Are they looking to stay in their current type or job or do they have bigger plans?
Recreation is about the time when you're not at work. What you do first thing back home. Ideas for other ways to chill out. Could even quiz on what they would do if given a year long holiday!
Dreams are your Dreams! Big life long plans or maybe small things you really want now like a cute new puppy or a brand new car.
You can combine these topics together too. Did your brother have any big inspiring dreams for the future? What do your coworkers do when their day is done, you hang out with them?
I hope these tips help you!
