General evaluator

The General Evaluator is an evaluator of everything that takes place throughout the meeting.

Before the meeting

Check with the Toastmaster of the meeting to find out how the programme will be conducted and if there are any planned deviations from the usual meeting format.

During the meeting

Take notes on everything that happens or, in your view, should happen. For example, were there unnecessary distractions that could have been avoided? Create a checklist from which you can follow the meeting. Did the meeting and each segment of it, begin and end on time?
You would not normally evaluate the Prepared Speakers or Tables Topics Speakers, as they have already been evaluated, but you may want to add something that the evaluator may have missed or express a different opinion.
Give your General Evaluation of the meeting, using the notes you took as suggested above. Comment on the quality of evaluations. Were they positive, upbeat, helpful? Did they point the way to improvement?
Try to think of something original to say!
