Observations from a “Target” Speaker

In Active Listening, Communication, Cool Ideas, leadership, Toastmasters on March 9, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Typically it is the model or "target" speaker who receives evaluations from Toastmasters competing in the evaluaion contest. This image captures a few roles in reverse.

 Followers of this blog — whether you’re a Toastmaster or someone who one day may be called upon to speak in public — are encouraged to post a comment and share your own observations about contests, receiving feedback on your experience as a “target” speaker, and/or on challenges you’ve faced when integrating a remote participant in your meetings. For more information about Toastmasters International click here.
