A timer script based on clubhouse

Have you ever had a bulb light in your head as you read something? A sort of realization that you deeply resonate with the words. Well, if you are in Clubhouse, this script might do just that. We are not going to spoil it for you. Go take a read.

Role of Timer

Clubhouse is all the rage and I joined recently to see why. Once I understood how the app works, there was one flaw I noticed immediately, especially as a Toastmaster. Most people when given a chance to talk would do so endlessly even when mentioned that they have 2 minutes. Too bad they don’t have a stop watch. Thankfully, we here in Toastmasters are well aware of this human fallacy. That is why we have a Timer in every session whose role is to alert the speakers of their time limits. As the timer today, let me inform you about these 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.
