Title: General Evaluator Tips

The General Evaluator has the opportunity to help Evaluators and Table Topics respondents improve their skills. As well as calling on your helpers, take a couple of moments to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the evaluations, and to give a comment or two about the structure of the table topics responses. For example, did the evaluator focus on the speech itself, or on the personality/character of the speaker? Did each table topics respondent transition smoothly from an opening reaction/response, to a meaningful conclusion?

Also, it's perfectly appropriate to comment on the meeting's time frame -- did the meeting start on time, and is it being adjourned on time -- but remember this comment isn't really significant if the meetings are 'always' on time. More significant is a suggestion or analysis about how effective the Toastmaster of the Day was, in managing the meeting time effectively.

Consider that the GE is the keystone of the Toastmasters "Educational" program.
