Prepared Speech Session  

Let us continue with the second session of today’s meeting. For today’s meeting we are very proud to welcoming 3 members who will be delivering their prepared speeches.

 

FIRST SPEAKER

The first speaker is xxx with a speech title xxx. Let’s welcome xxx.

Thank you xxx.

Let’s take a minute to give your evaluation to xxx.

Whenever you’re giving an evaluation, it’s wise to keep the following points in mind:

Always start by saying something positive to the person.

Bring out the negative points gently. Don’t be blunt. Always try to end with a gentle suggestion for improvement.

So you need to begin with a positive, follow with the negative and always end with a positive.

Constructive criticism or feedback is important, especially when it means improvement and encourages correction. It’s not the feedback but how it’s given that matters. Giving feedback gently softens the criticism. This method reinforces improved behaviour, ensuring better results in the future.

SECOND SPEAKER

Now we have our next speaker xxx with a speech title xxx. Let’s welcome xxx.

Let’s spend a minute to give your evaluation to xxx.
