Notes for the Evaluator

During the completion of this project, the member spent time learning how to manage difficult audience members during a presentation.

About this speech:
* The member will deliver a 5- to 7-minute speech on any topic and practice responding to four audience member disruptions.
The speech may be new or previously presented.
You do not evaluate the speech or speech content.
* Your evaluation is based on the member's ability to address and defuse challenges presented by the audience. Audience members were assigned roles by the Toastmaster and/or vice president education prior to the meeting.
* Watch for professional behavior, respectful interactions with audience members, and the use of strategies to refocus the audience on the member's speech.
* The member has 10 to 15 minutes to deliver his or her 5- to 7-minute speech and respond to disrupters.
