Time is an important element of human life. It’s so important that we willingly handcuff our wrists with devices that tell time, measure our success in vital events at work and play on the basis of time and have an entire person in Toastmasters committed to just watching time. Today, I am that person.

As the Timer today, my role is to alert the speakers of the time intervals while they are on stage using colored flashed cards.

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 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 will come back with my report in the last session when called upon by the General Evaluator.
