Video: How We Evaluate Speakers In Toastmasters

Toastmasters helps its members become better speakers and leaders, and one of the primary ways we do that is through evaluations. For every speech, another member is assigned to listen closely and prepare notes on what the speaker did well and what he or she could improve. The person giving the evaluation is also challenged to quickly prepare an impromptu speech including this feedback.
