“Essentials of Effective Evaluations” Lynda Joyce and Diane Pearson, August 22

When we think about the Toastmaster roles that we’ve benefitted the most from, the evaluator role is the most obvious one. Yet it is the role most members shy away from. If you fit into that category or are looking to grow your skills as an evaluator, this workshop will teach you the essentials of effective evaluations.

We’ll take a look at
1. benefits for supportive and specific evaluations
2. techniques for doing it effectively
3. and resources for improvement.

Learn / Practice

Come and see how much fun learning to speak in public can be. Sure it can be hard – we all want to be perfect each time we speak and it doesn’t always work out like that.

By learning and practicing to effectively formulate and express your ideas, you open an entirely new world of possibilities. You’ll be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations, and you’ll improve your one-on-one dealings with others.

Come to our next meeting!
Our theme will be: “Perseverance”. Share with us stories or tips about when you strive to achieve a goal under difficult situations and perseverance pays off !

Practice – that’s the secret. And support. And helpful feedback. Yes – you can do it.
