The Table Topics Evaluator gives feedback to each Table Topics Speaker.
What’s great about this role:
This role is an excellent way to gain leadership skills, as well as experience speaking with only a short amount of time to prepare. You will be evaluating each Table Topic Speaker in a short amount of time, so it is a great role for advanced members to work on their evaluation skills.
- Consider how you will take notes at the meeting. Check out this sample Table Topics Evaluator note taking form as an example.
At the meeting:
- Listen carefully to each Table Topics speaker.
- When introduced, give your evaluation for each Table Topics speaker. Try to begin and end each evaluation with praise or encouragement, and offer a suggestion for improvement
See the Toastmasters International website for a free guide on evaluation.
Remember, the purpose of an evaluation is to encourage and motivate the speaker to keep improving. For many speakers, just getting up in front of the group is a big step!
