General Evaluator

Taking on this role improves critical thinking, organization, time management, motivational, and team-building skills. The General Evaluator evaluates everything that takes place during the club meeting.

Explain Role

  • At the beginning of the meeting, the Toastmaster explains the Theme and introduces you.
  • In a minute or less, explain your role as the General Evaluator while incorporating both the Toastmaster’s Theme and the Grammarian/Ah-Counter’s Word of the Day.

Be Omniscient

Give General Evaluation

  • At the end of the meeting, the Toastmaster calls on you to give your general evaluation in 2-3 minutes:
    • There will be nowhere near enough time for your entire report. Just give the highlights!
    • Sometimes there will be time for only a minute or less—plan for that scenario by prioritizing your feedback.
    • Focus on key takeaways and opportunities for improvement.
    • Be sure to highlight Table Topics Participants and other roles that would not otherwise get feedback.
    • Again, incorporate both the Toastmaster’s Theme and the Grammarian/Ah-Counter’s Word of the Day.
  • Above all, because Toastmasters is laser-focused on positive reinforcement, be sure to use the sandwich method whenever you give feedback by layering all constructive remarks with positive ones. Please do your best to implement it “PRO Chef Style” according to Alondra Sánchez’s Evaluator presentation (page 6).
