How To Evaluate A Speech

by Sue
(Auckland, New Zealand)

One of the best things for any public speaker is to get intelligent, constructive feedback. The problem is actually getting it.

In a lot of speaking you either get no feedback (except applause or rotten tomatoes), or you get lots of 'You were brilliant. I loved your talk.' That type of feedback isn't much use either.

In this speech I talk about how we do it at our Toastmasters Club. I explain 'commend, recommend, commend' and other techniques like 'using the third person. I also explain why we use these techniques.

This is a speech project from the 'Speaking To Inform' Toastmasters manual.
