Cheltenham Speakers – Speech Evaluator Guidance

Before the Meeting:

  • Check the website to see who you are evaluating and their speech information.

  • If it is a CC speech, bring your CC manual.

  • Have a plan for the format of your evaluation.

At the Meeting:

  • Meet with your speaker to discuss their speech and objectives:

    • Remind them of timings

    • Have their speech title in front of you

Introducing Speakers:

  • Be positive and energetic!

  • Tell us: Manual, speech number and title, timings of their speech, objectives, any personal objectives

  • To introduce: Name, speech title. Speech title, name. For example:

  • ‘Our next speaker is James Anderson with “How to play cricket”. With “how to play cricket”, please welcome James Anderson.

  • If the speaker is doing their 1st Speech (Icebreaker) or 10th Speech, remind the audience of the standing ovation at the start and end of the speech.      


  • Avoid using ‘you’, referring directly to the speaker, or giving them more attention that the rest of the audience.

  • Make sure you state whether they met the objectives or not.

  • The rest is up to you, but some general tips:

    • Make points that the whole audience can learn from

    • Demonstrate how (e.g show body language use, alter your voice as they did)

    • Point for improvements can be very small – always make sure you have at least one

    • Make PFIs clearly actionable. Instead of ‘Use better eye contact’, demonstrate how it could be implemented.

    • End on a positive!

Post Meeting:

  • Fill in the speaking manual as required.
