http://www.charlesgreene.com/ Presentation Skills: Evaluation cards for presentation speakers are one of the best ways to get into the mind on your presentation audiences. The responses will let you learn how your presentation message and public speaking skills really rate.
My speaker evaluation card is small, 8.5 inches by 5.5 inches, and printed on yellow card stock. The size makes the card easy to handle. The color makes sure that it stands out from other papers that the audience might have.
Below are the eight questions from my speaker evaluation card. Feel free to use them as you wish.

Video text: Hello my name is Charles Greene III Presentation Magician.
The topic for today is evaluation cards.
Evaluation cards are a great way to get real and immediate feedback from your presentation audiences.
Keep watching and you’ll learn three critical questions that need to be on every evaluation card.
Regardless of how much work you put into your presentation, the audience always has the final say. So you might as well know, what they are thinking. Evaluation cards will let you know if your audience really connected with you and your message.
The key to an effective evaluation card is to have simple questions that can be easily answered. My evaluation card has 8 questions. The first five questions are short and can be answered with a numerical rating of 1 — 5, 5 being the top level. The final three require a little more thought, yet provide me with the best information.
Question 6 “What did you like best?” The positive responses to this question are useful. More importantly, it sets up the next two questions, which provide the best information for improvement of my future presentations.
Question 7 “What did you like least?” Every presentation has a weak link. Even though you may repeat the same presentation, your weakest link could change from audience to audience. Knowing what your audiences like least, will let you improve your future presentations far better than knowing what they liked best.
My final question is number 8. “What question do you have now that you wish had been answered by the speaker?” The responses to this question tells me the area that I need to cover more thoroughly in the future.
Feed back from an evaluation card provides you with a window into how your audiences view your presentations. However, it’s your job to decipher their responses, make adjustments, and then incorporate the revisions into your next great presentation.
