In the interest of sharing what will be improving in the near future, I thought it’d be great if you got to see an overview of the survey results.
Before we jump into the data, I wanted to share this nice comment from one of the respondents.
If you left a comment with a wish, don’t worry, I’ve seen it and will be working on those suggestions promptly.
For the first question, I wanted to see what people appreciate the most about Potent Speaking, and if there is anything people don’t like about it. By far the most popular are the articles, which is great because they’re easy to write and I have plenty lined up.
I was a bit surprised at first that the brief template was the least popular, but it makes sense. Not only is a brief template pretty subjective and polarizing, but this one also has some flaws. I’ll be working on a version 2. If you already have a template that works for you, that’s great. The Potent Speaking template is for experienced and novice debaters alike, but I can see people without a favorite template using it more than people who’d have to switch.
Please leave a comment below if you have some specific suggestions for it.
Here’s the raw data:
The second question is important because Potent Speaking is essentially a tool for you. The more people in debate who know about it, the more people are benefited by the articles, videos, and resources provided. It sounds like almost everyone is willing to recommend it to their friends, which is great. Go out and do likewise!
Lastly, probably the most exciting question of all: what should Potent Speaking focus on next?
Here’s what the community had to say:
Thankfully, I’m already working on a sourcebook, and the sourcebook will include videos with sample speeches using the briefs. Let that sink in.
As for the rest: they will not be ignored!
If you haven’t taken the survey yet, you can still do so and your feedback won’t be lost in the crowd. Although the survey is anonymous, I can sort by most recent response. You can take it here:
