Timer

A timer script on regulating words

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.

For more scripts on any roles, just use your balls, we mean eye balls. Look at the tabs above and click on the right one.
