ARTICLE NUMBER: 2
TITLE : “But why? The reason for evaluating”
by Louis Nigrini - TM D74 Evaluations Champion 2013 & 2016
“But why?” From experience, most parents and teachers will be able to tell that this is the core question of any four year old: “Eat your veggies?” “But why?” “Go to sleep” “ But why?” “Daddy loves you..” ‘But why?”
From experience, this is also the question I believe we should all ask (and honestly answer ourselves) more: “I’m part of Toastmasters.” “But why?” “I came to improve my leadership and speaking skills” “But why?”…and so on and so forth. The more you honestly answer the why questions for yourself, the deeper you will be venturing into your own rabbit hole of motivation and reason.
When looking at evaluation, the “But why?” reason we do elevations is primarily to accomplish the following: 1) To educate, 2) to empower, and 3) to inspire. Over the next three articles, we’ll be delving deepening into each of these outcomes.
But why? Because if we as evaluators do not know what to outcomes of the evaluation is suppose to be, it is easy for us to stand up for three minutes and regurgitate to the speakers and the club what they said and how they said it, without contributing to the growth of the speaker or the audience.
But why? Because evaluations are the best opportunity to invest in the development of the speaker by highlighting the good and growth points. It’s also an opportunity to develop the members of the audience who all saw the same speech: By effectively using the speech as an example, everybody gets to grow in understanding.
But why? Because that is the mission of Toastmasters International: To empower individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.
Points to ponder:
1 Does your club and evaluators have a clear understanding of why Toastmasters have evaluating sections on the agenda?
2 Are you approaching this evaluation section as an opportunity to 1) educate, 2) to empower, and 3) to inspire everyone in the audience (the speaker, club members, and visitors)?
3 If not, “But why?”

By Egoli Toastmasters Club
St Giles & Avalon Home for people living with disabilities have been so kind to lend us a room on their premises at no cost to our Club, this is where we run our bi-weekly Toastmaster meetings and the occasional competition from.
We recently heard that the home is at risk of being closed and that they are in urgent need of funds. If they close their doors so many people will lose the only home they have and we as Egoli Golden City Toastmasters will ourselves need to find a new home too from which to run our meetings, due to this challenge we have decided to stand together in support of the St Files & Avalon home and to take part in the Bedford Walk for Charity where all the funds raised at the event will go straight to St Giles and Avalon.
So please put on your running shoes and come join a fun-filled day of exercise and laughter with the family in the beautiful morning sunshine and help a really worthy cause.

It was a cold June evening when the new Exec Committee of Bedfordview Toastmasters first met to discuss our vision for the 2016/2017 year for our club.
Our vision: A community club with a culture of Professionalism and Value.
It had always been done this way, “They” said. So how did we change it? How do you create a club culture?
Educational sessions. We have one at every meeting, so our members are always getting added value and know what the club expectations are.
Sometimes the sessions are the educationals prescribed by Toastmasters. Sometimes the sessions aren’t. We try to keep each session under 10 minutes, before attention wanders ;-)
We’ve had a session on what to wear to club meetings. We’ve had a session on meeting roles. We’ve had a session on mentoring. We’ve even had sessions reviewing an article from the Toastmaster magazine.
Different members present the session each time, so the topics and views are varied. Both the presenter and the members learn.
This is our club tip, feel free to use it in your club. Let’s start sharing club methods for success.

The 17th September 2016 was the day that was highly anticipated by a number the delegates that attended. With Senate Leeuw, Njabulo Thala, Thandewefika a.k.a Thando Tshabalala and Frank Tsuro formed a team of eager beaver Toastmasters who helped put together and run a stunning meeting.
This whole experience played in Duduza which is about 16 km after Springs, Ekurhuleni Metro also known as the East Rand.
The time to make all the efforts count had finally come and Frank called the meeting to order, he then handed control to our Toastmaster for the of the day the rest was a gradual escalation of a life-changing meeting for all who were in attendance.
The church leadership, who made this meeting a reality, were also in the background, which is why we had over 50 people present. Oh boy, oh boy did they rant and rave about the what they got exposed to.
Pastor Tessa, the senior Pastor of All Grace Worship Centre, was due to attend another event but as soon as she experienced the gripping and life altering effects of toastmasters she changed her plans and sat through the entire session. Mr. Phiri, the chairperson of the church, shared similar sentiments of enduring gratitude for what they tested.
That meeting was just but a start of our effort to set the “East Alight”. With the surrounding areas, such as Tsakena, showing interest more demo meetings will follow in the nearest future. Our efforts will continue to make the presence of Toastmasters felt in those areas. We will continue until at least two clubs are launched before the end of this Toastmasters’ year. Then we can look back with pride and say the “East is Lit”
