In our last meeting, Wednesday 18th November, we asked attendees what is their favourite meeting role (for example, chairperson, evaluator, grammarian, and many more). This is what they said:
Toastmaster because I am in control!
❤ I like Table Topic Master as it gives me control and I can be creative and don’t have to do a topic myself 😊
❤ My favourite role Table Topics evaluator, I love having the opportunity to give feedback in short snappy way 😊
❤ I like the Table Topics Master role because it lets me move a little more out of my comfort zone, as you get more of a chance to make it your own.
❤ I love Table Topic Master – it’s great fun thinking of a great topic that will draw people out – needs to be balanced with being enough of a challenge – lots of fun to be had with that role – love it when one of our Toastmasters bought a bag of objects and you had to talk about something you draw out of the bag by chance.
❤ Grammarian because it’s fun to focus on the use of language
❤ I enjoy Table Topic Evaluator because you avoid doing a Table Topic speech! But it is also challenging.
❤ Evaluator because it is a good school to prepare yourself for evaluating other people in real life, I find it also challenging
❤ My favourite role is evaluator because it involves close listening
❤ My favourite role is the Table Topic Master. I like different roles for different reasons at different times. I like TT Master but I don’t do it often as it’s a great chance to find out things about the people who inspire me.
❤ My first favourite is speech evaluator as I like to help people improve. My second favourite is Table Topic Master as I like to be creative
❤ My favourite role is the Table Topic Master because I stretch of imagination and it is a chance to have some more fun:)
And finally, my favourite (your VP PR) has been the evaluator role, because it stretched me to put together a short speech after listening to what my Toastmasters peers have said, in a short amount of time. Good challenge, eh? It’s my chance to be positive, focused and helpful 😊
Join us next time!
