Time is an incredibly valuable commodity. There are 25 of us present here today and I am sure that all of us have other plans for the evening. It is therefore very important for each one of us that we conclude this meeting on time. As the Timer today, I will take care of this by alerting the speaker of their time limits.

For the prepared speech section, the time allotted is 5 to 7 minutes. At 5 minutes I will flash the green card, at 6 the yellow and at 7 the red card.

For the Table Topic session the time allotted is 1 to 2 minutes. At 1 minute, I will flash the green card, at 1.5 the yellow and at 2 the red card.

And for the speech evaluations, the time limit is 2 to 3 minutes. At 2 minutes, I will flash the green card, at 2.5 the yellow and at 3 minutes the red card.

There is a grace period of 30 seconds after the red card is flashed each time to wrap up your speech.

I hope all the speakers speak within their allotted time limits. I will come back with my report towards the end of the meeting.
