The General Evaluator – often forgotten, but always beneficial. As GE you will evaluate everything that hasn’t been evaluated; Toastmaster, Timekeeper and Evaluators included!
6-minute report at the end of the meeting.
Before the Meeting
Before the meeting gets underway, make a note of who is talking to guests, whether the room is set out properly, and if the meeting starts on time – think of any volunteers who might not get a mention for their work behind the scenes.
At the Meeting
- Once the meeting has started – right up until your report – note anything of interest. Some ideas include:
- How did the President open the meeting?
- What did the Toastmaster do to keep the energy up/meeting running as planned?
- Where there are challenges that the meeting had to overcome?
- Who was helping throughout?
- How did the evaluators do?
- Did the Timekeeper keep the meeting to time?
- How was Table Topics?
- Did the Grammarian fulfil their role well?
- How could the club or meeting improve?
- Like all evaluators, a focus on the analytical rather than superficial is helpful and remember to be polite, positive and constructive in your feedback;
- You’ll be called up by the Toastmaster at the end of the meeting – focus on keeping your report to a similar format as you might a speech evaluation.
