2018 Summer Evaluation Series

Delivering effective feedback is the core of what we do at Boston Toastmasters. Join us for a series of meetings aimed at developing your feedback skills.


STEP I: THEORY

Veteran Toastmaster and acclaimed evaluator Amy Ullman presents tips for delivering the best evaluation you can give, both in and out of a Toastmasters environment.


STEP II: PRACTICE

Sept 04, 2018
“2018 BTM Evaluation Workshop”

Now in its 3rd year, Boston Toastmasters’ evaluation workshop showcases three very different speeches and gives participants three different models for a general evaluation. Test out all three models and find your personal favorite. Discuss your thoughts with fellow BTM members. Facilitated by Boston Toastmasters staff.


STEP III: MOMENT OF GLORY

Sept 11, 2018
“Boston Toastmasters Evaluation Contest”

Our annual Evaluation Contest requires no memorization or advance speechwriting. One mystery speaker delivers a 5-7 minute Toastmasters speech. You and the other contestants take notes. Apply the techniques and tips from Amy’s talk and the evaluation workshop to deliver the winning evaluation and proceed to the Area Level contest! Presented in conjunction with our annual Humorous Speech Contest (which does require an original prepared speech). There are no prerequisites for either contest aside from Boston Toastmasters membership.
