TM Rohit from Mumbai has done his post graduate in management. He did not state so but we figured it from his script for the role of Timer. Read his submission and let us know if you agree with our hypothesis.

Humans mismanage time. Then they lament about the mismanaged time. And then they mismanage some more. No wonder people have devised courses on managing time; others have written books on the subject, some have even written complex codes to develop apps for time management. In Toastmasters, we like to keep things simple. We use these colored flash cards so that our members may manage their time efficiently while they are on stage.
For the prepared speeches, the time limit is 5 to 7 minutes. At the end of 5 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 6 and red at the end of 7 minutes.
For the Table Topic Session, the time limit is 1 to 2 minutes. At the end of 1 minute, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 1.5 and red at the end of 2 minutes.
For the Speech Evaluations, the time limit is 2 to 3 minutes. At the end of 2 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 2.5 and red at the end of 3 minutes.
There is a grace time of 30 seconds after the red card is flashed each time to wrap up your speeches.
I will come back with my report towards the end of the meeting when I hope no one laments about mismanaged time today.
