Feedback on my Speeches

One of the elements of Toastmasters that is designed to help you improve your public speaking, is feedback. Every speech you make, or role you fulfil gets evaluated by other Club Members (don’t worry, it’s not scary), the feedback listed below are comments that I received after my first two speeches in our Club. The idea is that the Member will pick out a couple of these and work on them in upcoming speeches.

Areas I need to improve upon:

  • Crutch word reduction
  • Work on messaging
  • Too many stats
  • Slow down
  • Don’t apologise
  • Work on conclusion
  • Do not use notes
  • Look up
  • Make eye contact
  • Don’t stand behind the podium
  • Have confidence in my skills
  • Count to 10 before I start
  • Do not use the word ‘Handy’
  • Ease up on details
  • Better finish needed
  • Keep eyes open
  • Move around stage
  • Emphasise fewer stats
  • Don’t be hard on yourself
  • Be more confident
  • Improve vocal variety
  • Improve gestures
  • Apply feedback
  • Pick four things to focus on “Less is more”
