A Timer’s script with a collection of proverbs

TM Neha from Kolkata played it smart in this script for the role of Timer. She has brilliantly used all proverbs in one speech to emphasise how important time is. Read her submission below.

Time is money. Time and tide wait for no one. A stitch in time saves nine. Our ancestors created these and a hundred more proverbs on time. They knew how vital time is and embedded the truth in these timeless proverbs.

In Toastmasters too, time play is an equally important element. We have pre defined time limit for each speeches and as the timer today my role is to alert you about your time limits.

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.
