How to give constructive feedback

Frequently Asked Questions

Constructive feedback is both honest and thoughtful, with the best interest of the speaker to improve his or her next presentation.

Before giving feedback, check the Description field if there are any extra information from the Speaker such as, what they’d like to get feedback on.

Please be specific and focus only on improvements where the speaker can apply immediately on their next presentation. Feedback should not include anything that the speaker cannot or should not have changed such as accent or physical appearance.

Your rating will be used to compare the speaker’s own speaking journey, and therefore it’s important to indicate what you like and what you don’t like. If you think for example, you can’t come up with a reason why the voice is good, then rate two stars “it’s ok”. It means that the speaker still has a lot of ways to improve, and that feedback alone is well worth your time!

What you should not do when giving feedback

Do not rate all areas the same level of ratings, either all five stars (five “awesome” emojis), or fours or all ones because it does not really help the speaker. If you really have to, then please explain your feedback on the free text fields or on a feedback video.
