Here is an Timer’s script from one of our members. Quite an interesting point of view to explain the role. Have a look
Why is a timer important in Toastmasters meeting? Well chiefly, it’s to regulate speakers. A timer restricts the chatterboxes from speaking too much while prompting the shy ones from withdrawing too soon. I am therefore like a stabiliser – stabilising the flow of words from your mouths toastmasters. I will achieve this using these coloured flash cards.
For prepared speakers, the time limit is 5 to 7 minutes. At 5 minutes I will flash the green card, at 6 the yellow card and finally at 7 the red card.
For table topic speakers, the time limit is 1 to 2 minutes. At 1 minute I will flash the green card, at 1.5 the yellow card and finally at 2 the red card.
For speech evaluators, the time limit is 2 to 3 minutes. At 2 minutes I will flash the green card, at 2.5 the yellow card and finally at 3 the red card.
I will present my report towards the end of the meeting.
