I am thrilled to have the honor to do a workshop at the Spring convention in Tainan entitled
"Encouraging, Energetic, Enlightening Evaluations"
The year that I won 1st place in the Evalution contest at the 2014 Taiwan D67 convention, I volunteered, or asked, or begged to have an evaluator role 27 times in 2013, and 54 times in 2014. I did as many as 8 evaluations in one week. In the 8 years before that, I had placed 3rd in Evaluation... TWO TIMES!!! I placed 2nd one time... and got eliminated before the District competitions in all the years I didn't place. I would show up at an evaluation contest, and would get the attitude from some people....What??? you are still competing???? C'mon old man... make some room for some new younger ones to compete!
I was REALLY HUNGRY TO SHARPEN MY EVALUATION SKILLS AND GET A FIRST PLACE!!!
In this workshop I want to have something for the beginner evaluator, something for the average evaluator, and something for the those that are competing.
Evaluation is such a useful skill to develop because it will help you in so many areas. You'll get more sensitive to what makes a good speech. Your ability to develope a short speech that encompasses your opinions, observations and suggestions with a good conclusion will help your ability to focus, think quickly, and present what you have to say in a very short period of time.
It is my goal to vaporize your fear of evaluations and equip you with tools and ideas so you will enthusiastically confidently grow to become great evaluators!
When you come to the workshop, get ready to buckle down and concentrate because we only have a SHORT 40 minutes to cover a lot of ground.
I look forward to seeing you at the spring conference.
