Evaluation by TM NK (Time: 2’57”)

Meeting Report (#335)  Nov.27, 2019 by TM MK


TM KKさんのあいさつで本日の例会が開始。参加者が少なくダブルロールも予想されていました。しかしふたを開けてみれば大盛況。遅れていくと席を見つけるのも大変でした。



今夜の言葉はTM KSさんです。本日は欠席の予定でしたが、プロジェクタ当番だということに気づき、必死!?の思いで来たとのこと。それに由来したたとえ火の中、水の中が本日の言葉です。新しいあまり普段は使わない言葉もいいのですが、このような知っているがあまり使わない言葉というのも、語彙遣いの練習になります。

準備スピーチ#1 The Better Speaker Series “Controlling Your Fear”

タイトル 「恐怖心をモノにする」 by TM RK

スピーチにおける恐怖心の正体は何か、どのように克服するかをシナリオ仕立てにして小気味良いテンポでまとめていました。まずは本日着てきたパーカーから時事トピックであるローマ法王の演説を組み合わせてスムーズな導入。緊張の理由は人によって違うことを理由を明確にして説明していました。さらに分析を深め、緊張の鍵は周りのレスポンスであること、人との距離が鍵であることを明らかにします。さて恐怖心の解決策については一転して自らの甲府でのイベントを絡めて提案。具体例があり、だれもが実践できるような提案をしていました。スクリプトを丸暗記しない、プランB, C, Dを用意するというのは明日からでも実践できる知恵といえます。さすが落ちつきながら、ユーモアあり、気づきあり素晴らしいスピーチでした。

論評者は TM YI

スピーチの特徴を一言でまとめると、優しい語り口でありながら力強いメッセージである。時事トピックであるローマ法王と自分のつながりにより聴衆をスピーチに引き込み、さらに質問の投げかけとその反応により聴衆と確固たる関係を築いている。甲府イベントの意外性についても言及があった。プランB, C, Dについて明日から自分たちでもお手軽にできるポイント。スペースは広かったのでもう少し使ってもよかったのではないかという指摘。

準備スピーチ#2 洞察力に富むコミュニケーション level 1 #2 論評とフィードバック

タイトル 「ストーリーテリング」 by TM MA


論評者は TM NK


総合論評 TM AO

2人の論評者はそれぞれ対象となるスピーチが15分と6分程度と大幅に異なるにもかかわらず、きっちりまとめていた。TM YIは、オープニング~詳細に時系列~自分の感銘ポイントを適切に表現していた。最初に感銘ポイントを持ってくるとより聴衆に評価が伝わりやすくなる。TM NKは自分の担当でない人のスピーチをアドリブでとりている。改善点としては子供の反応はスピーチで述べられていたこと、聞いてくれない子供への対応を明らかにすべきという指摘。


[English Session]

Prepared Speech #1 Pathways : Level2 #1 Understanding Your Leadership Style

Speech Title : Switching Leadership Style by TM NH

TM NH introduce speech with Godzilla style sensational picture. Comparing two contradicted situation, bring the question of “What is ideal leadership style”. Quick analysis is “No single style leadership but it is necessary to change case by case”. So further bring theoretical background of Danie Goleman to support speech. Goleman introduce 6 styles of leadership, namely affiliative, democratic, commanding, pacesetting, visionary and coaching. Most important aspect of theory is each style fits a different situation. Then introducing her own story that how change of leadership style help her carrier. Mission of year end drinking party does not work out well because staff does not follow the order. After changing leadership style so discussing more rather than command style, then although change in original plan but huge success. Let’s change our leadership style based on situation.

Evaluation from TM GK

TM GK firstly point out about opening. Opening of speech is interesting and exciting so that audience was pulled in directly into speech. Then visual is effectively used to provide concreteness on the speech, Nice visualization of Godzilla. Lastly body language spice up the speech. As two improvement, first, it would be good to provide brief explanation of typical Japanese such as “忘年会“, secondary, directly answer the objective of “Identify your leadership style”.

Prepared Speech #2 Pathways : Innovative planning Lv3 #2 Elective projects, Connect with storytelling

Speech Title : Learning from Rugby world cup by TM KK

Starting speech with calm and strong attitude. It has been mentioned that we are nearly welcoming year end of 2019. then Speech continue how it was looks like for TM KK as VPE of his role in TITMC. It has been mentioned that roll is really challenging due to planning of TITMC meeting every week and promotion of new member ship. So now bring theme of this speech that “How we can increase of new members”. Now speech bring one of the biggest sport even in Japan “Rugby World cup(WC)”.I has achieved great success but how? TM KK now provide his analysis. this success is because of mass introduction not only existing fan but also new fan who does not have any exposure to WC. But how it can be possible to have exposure. Answer is SNS and hands on meeting. So this idea can be also brough into strategy of TITMC promotion for new membership.

Evaluation from TM RT

TM RT first point about how objective is fulfilled. Basically objective is well satisfied, citation of WC is also timely and strongly related with theme. Next mention about deep insight about speech. This insight about WC promotion is also uniquely connect TITMC membership promotion. A further in detail explanation would help for understanding of strategy.

General Evaluation TM AO

TM GK provide fluent evaluation in English, also TM GK use “Thank you” as header word for evaluation. Evaluation is based on context, so well summarized alongside with analysis. Also it is unique and effective evaluation how speech meet objective. Although this is fundamental question which need be clarified in evaluation, often not mentioned. TM RT provide standard organizational evaluation so it is easily captured and understood by audience.

  • 準備スピーチ#1

Pathways: Dynamic Leadership, Level 1 「リサーチとプレゼンテーション」

タイトル 「あの日の分析」 TM TH  (Time 6’50“)

-約1か月前の例会で「論評」の役割を果たす予定であった「あの日」に急な体調不良が発生し、不参加となってしまった。その体調不良に至る過程と状況をスピーチで具体的かつ説得力を持って分析されていた。耳石の損傷による眩暈、むち打ち症、或いは何らかの原因での過呼吸等が考えられたとの話。病院までは救急車で救急病棟に直行し手当を受けた状況を時系列で具体的に示された。聴衆も臨場感を持って話に聞きほれてました。医師の診断は原因不明との結論で、決して納得いく内容ではなかったが、症状も落ち着て来たの帰宅した由。これらの実経験を分析し 聴衆に次の提案をなされた。➀必要に応じ救急車は使うべし

夜間診療は新米医師が多い事を留意すべし ③You Tubeでの(病気の対応法等)検索も役に立つことがある ④ あまりに心配するより、好きな事(例えば、トーストマスター例会参加や温泉巡り等)をやると気分が晴れるし良い対応策と思うと。

論評者(Evaluator)は TM KKさん  (Time 3’53”)

非常に素晴らしいスピーチであり、次の3点が称賛された。➀タイトルの意外性と導入部の巧みさで聴衆の気持ちを最初から掴んでいた。②リサーチの徹底性が指摘され、耳の構造図を使った説明や、救急病院での会話の描写など聴衆がその場に居たかの如く思える。 ③更に、ビデオやスライド等が効果的に使用されていた。尚、Suggestionとして次の提案がなされた。医師の分析手法や対応についての観察と分析は良く理解されたので、TM TH個人としての原因分析の話がもう少し付け加えて頂ければより完成度が上がると思うと。

  • 準備スピーチ#2 TM HYさん   (Time 7’33”)

Pathways: 影響力ある説得 Level3 #1 「対立の解消について

タイトル 「そのとき、あなたは?

-先月の台風15号が関東直撃し、各地に大きな爪痕をのこしたこと。又、交通手段において計画運休が初めて大々的に運用された事を伝えた。アンケート結果として計画運休には9割が納得しているが、復旧に時間かかったことに4割以上が不便を感じたことなど紹介された。HYさんは会社で総務に携わっておられるようで、台風の際 会社として従業員へ通達し対応してゆくか 関係者で討議し、いかに行動したかを発表。又、その後 意思決定のプロセスを分析し、今後へつなげる話をされた。最後に、聴衆に向かっては「今週も大型台風が来ることが予想されているが、其の時 あなたはどうされますか?」との問いで話を締め括られた。

論評者(Evaluator)は TM JSさん  (Time 2’51”

  • Prepared Speech #1 by TM MA (Time: 6’13”)

Pathways: Visionary Communication, Level#1 Ice Breaker

Title: “A curious girl”

– TM MA introduced her younger days of memories. She was a very curious girl who had strong interest in architecture, history, and buildings. So she studied architecture and became an architect for more than 20year. Then, she explained the reasons why she takes part in TITMC. 1) There is a necessity of explaining the public in English. 2) To find the place(or community) where allows the mistakes of her action(s). Because she had been working independently as an architect, so there was no boss nor no commander.

3) In order to achieve the ability to think in English, joining the Toast Masters Club might be a good chance. She also point out that it took 5years before joining TITMC due to find out the spare time and brushing up her English ability.

The evaluator was TM NS (time 3’25”)

-TM NS commented that;

1)Speaker’s attitude seems very stable, confident with good voice control. The usual ice break speaker was shaking and/or rushing, but she looked confident. 2) The explanation of her purpose to join the club was so clearly mentioned. 3) The speech was constructed well. The introduction, body and business background story flew smoothly.

One suggestion added. The speaker was looking at the paper material almost all the time.

If she could look at the audience’s eye more often, the speech could be much better.

  • Prepared Speech #2 by TM TM (Time: 6’53”)

Pathways: “Innovative Planning”, Level#3 “Present a proposal”

Title: “Margin”

-TM MY showed a piece of printed paper and started his speech. He said that the paper has not only the main contents but also marginal things. He insisted it was better to have margin in our life rather than only the main contents. The reasons were as follows;

1) Productivity: He referred to Google research that the productivity of a team be higher when they share each personal information rather than no sharing. 2) Communication:

Marginal things themselves promote additional feelings and communication. He got out Kappa-Ebisen from the bag and started talking. 3) Interest things: The machine is accurate, logical and no mistake. However, there were some of the products which made from emotional feeling could give us additional interest and preference.

The evaluator was TM AT (time 3’10”)

-TM AT commented that;

The speech was easily understood. The speaker gave the conclusion first, then, started the reasons and main contents, followed the conclusion last part. His gesturer with some of the materials like a copy sheet of Garigari-kun Tamagoyaki version(new product), Kappa-Ebisen was so funny and attracted the audience greatly. She suggested that it would be more understandable if the speech included the speaker’s own experience.

  • General Evaluation by TM AO

-She commented that each evaluator did nice job; TM NS made a well-organized evaluation.

TM AT was very professional and cool. She also pointed out that TM TM gave a question to TM AO in his speech intentionally or not. So, she said that TM AT could have react and evaluated his speech by the passionate way.

日本語の部の今夜の言葉は「いづこも同じ」by TM M.A.

本日、2本目のスピーチはTM A.O.



例えば、令和元年になり、1022日(火)は「即位礼正殿の儀の行われる日」になり、今年のみこの祝日があります。 「天皇の即位の日及び即位礼正殿の儀の行われる日を休日とする法律」が公布され、施行されたのが18年の1214日だったため、カレンダーに祝日とて記載されていない場合が多いので、約80%の方が祝日と認知していないそうです。(私もその1人でした。。。)






2本目のスピーチの論評者はTM K.S.





3本目のスピーチはTM K.K

ワークショップ「真実の瞬間/ Moments of Truth」という事で、4つのグループに分けて議論をして最後に発表をしました。


まず「真実の瞬間/ Moments of Truth」とはマーケティング概念の1つです。

マーケティング用語としてこの言葉を最初に取り上げたのは、1980年代初頭にスカンジナビア航空のCEOヤン・カールソン氏で、彼が唱えたMoment of Truthの考え方は、同航空会社でお客さまに直接応対するスタッフの当時の平均応接時間が15秒であり、そのわずかな時間にお客さまが判断するサービスの質が同社の成功を決めるというもの。同氏は、この考え方に基づいてさまざまな施策を打つことで、当時経営危機に陥っていたスカンジナビア航空をわずか1年で立て直しました。



TeamA – DCPの意味が分からない。Pathwaysのやり方がよく分からない。

TeamB- 会員同士や友達の絆を強める。仕事やスピーチの成功失敗を共有する。

TeamC- 会員の維持、達成認証の改善が必要。Pathwaysの基本説明が必要(助け合い精神で)

TeamD- 多様性があると居ごこちがいい。コミュニケーション。大会出場が必定以上に求められる。


今回で東京インターを退会されるTMOE, C.Y.の例会の進め方を称賛し、今までこのクラブのために、運営側や会員のモチベーションアップのために貢献して頂けた事に感謝を伝えておりました。


今日のグラコーTM O.N.がキャッチーな言葉や季節感のある言葉を発表されたのも良かったとおしゃっておりました。
