Get Your Game On! Evaluation Workshop with Rick Chandler – Meeting #008 – September 10, 2016

YOWZA! What a workshop!

Rick Chandler, a multi-time District Champion (in ALL categories) and Beyond Words member, kicked off a fabulous Evaluation Workshop with a bang of a presentation … biggest take-home, SELL THE BENEFIT!

We then launched into two contest-style sessions with a fun and delicious break inbetween:

1) Target speaker: Aurore Liang, “My First Wedding Ceremony”

Evaluators:

  • Alireza Azizkhani
  • David Galipeau
  • Marie-Chantal Côté
  • Said Mohammed
  • Vinay Nawani

2) Target speaker: Artem Ploujnikov, “The Long, Long Country Road”

Evaluators:

  • Davender Gupta
  • Ganesh Santhar
  • Marna Murray
  • Max-Émilien Robichaud
  • Tessa Manuello

You could slice the CONTEST TENSION in the air!

While the evaluators went out of the room for their five minute prep, Rick led a group round-robin evaluation of the speeches, which included his remarks.

After all the evaluators had presented (having drawn for speaking order during the *contest briefing*), Rick evaluated all of them and then opened up the evaluation to include a round-robin.

Informative presentation, wonderful contest simulation, amazing speeches and evaluations, incredible learning experience … Rick Chandler, you totally rock!
