It might a bit comparable to the division of powers. There a people who are doing something (executive branch) and people who are controlling and giving feedback on those actions (judiciary) – and of course Toastmaster International and the unwritten concept of the club providing the rules to be followed (legislative power).
In each meeting there are roles who are the entertainers. Those are
– the Toastmaster of the Evening – prepares the agenda and is the moderator of the evening
– the Speakers – prepare a speech with the objectives from the basic or one of the advanced manuals
– the Table Topic Master – prepares the theme for “impromptu speeches” to encourage thinking on your feet
– the 10-second Speech Master – prepares a set of questions that can be answered in 10 seconds
+ the contestants of Table Topics and 10-Secons Speeches.
Their jobs are reviewed by the evaluation team who give feedback on every action – even on their own team members. Their feedback is based on the ideas of Toastmasters International, on their own experience and personal perception. And of course, entertainment should be involved here as well. To this team belong
– the General Evaluator – manages the evaluation team and evaluates the whole meeting
– the Speeach Evaluators – give written and verbal feedback to each speaker
– the Evaluators on body language, eye contact and use of voice – give verbal feedback on those criterias
– the Ah-Counter – listens for buzz words and gives a report at the end of the meeting
– the Language Coach – listens for good and bad use of language and gives a report at the end of the meeting
– the Timer – times all program segments and gives a report at the end of the meeeting
