"I have performed many evaluations for speeches in the past, but in this particular case, I felt that I volunteered to critique an artist and discovered her name was Van Gogh. It was a masterpiece. ... I would encapsulate her speech in one-word reviews: impactful, emotional, personal, inspirational, perspective, powerful."
– T. Quon, Toastmasters' Chapter President
