Table topics evaluator

The Table Topics evaluator is the person who provides feedback in the form of a short evaluation for each of the table topics speakers in the form of a spoken report. He or she takes notes during the table topics section of the meeting. The aim is to give constructive feedback and encouragement, especially to new members and guests, who might be taking part in a meeting for the first time.

During the short table topics speeches, the evaluator will identify possible commendations and recommendations for each speaker. The evaluator will also note down the topic each speaker was invited to tackle.

There is usually very little time to prepare the evaluation report, so good note-taking is important.

And remember! The evaluator is evaluating the speakers, not the Topics Master and does not need discuss that role.
