 Evaluations

All roles and speeches at a Toastmasters meeting are evaluated.  This is an essential part of the Toastmasters experience and occurs in a supportive and constructive manner.  The intention of an evaluation is to provide positive feedback to the speaker, and to make meaningful suggestions for improvement.  In this way a Toastmaster is provided the opportunity to continuously improve, and the evaluation is relevant no matter how experienced the speaker.
