A Timer’s script for an on time Toastmasters meeting

Here is a delightful submission for the role of Timer by TM Ronald from Charlotte. We absolutely loved the positivity and motivation TM Ronald has infused in the script. What do you think? Do let us know.

It is said that well begun is half done. Now we did begin well today. Our SAA TM Name was on clock when she began reading the golden rules in a rather enthusiastic fashion. But as the proverb says, it’s all half done. The responsibility for the other half lies with you – the speakers and evaluators. To make this meeting a full success, you have to ensure that you are on clock as well just like our SAA. As the Timer today, I will help you in this endeavor by alerting 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.
