Effective Evaluation

Joe Gibbs District 71 LG Marketing 2007/08

Joe Gibbs 2006


Everyone is an Evaluator 

Toastmasters teaches us to focus on set objectives

It teaches us to….   

Listen Evaluate Communicate

Joe Gibbs 2006


Reasons for poor Evaluations

Fear of offending the Speaker…..

Lack of Preparation…..

Lack of self-confidence

Self importance or Ego Joe Gibbs 2006


How do you Evaluate effectively? 

Show interest in the Speaker and the Speech…..

Prepare beforehand  Meet with the speaker and discuss the upcoming speech  Get to know your speakers previous strengths & weaknesses  Be familiar with the objectives and evaluation guidelines Joe Gibbs 2006


How do you Evaluate effectively? 

Personalise your language  “I think”, “I believe”, “its my opinion”

Evaluate the Speech - not the person

Promote the Speakers self-esteem

Joe Gibbs 2006


Quality Meetings - Evaluation   

GE evaluate each evaluator – NOT THE SPEECH GE evaluate the meeting and the meeting officers Remember – same rules as for evaluations…. 

Positive, constructive, feedback to each officer of the meeting.

Good evaluations are the cornerstone of a good TM Club

Joe Gibbs 2006


Simple rule for Evaluations‌...

Never, ever lose sight of the fact that the speaker and their quest for personal improvement in their speaking skills, is your primary concern !
