Do you have the time?
One of the skills Toastmasters practice is expressing a thought within a specific time. As timer you are responsible for monitoring the time taken for each meeting segment and each speaker. You’ll also operate the timing signal, indicating to each speaker how long they have been talking. Serving as timer is an excellent opportunity to practice giving instructions and time management – a skill needed daily.
Take on this role and the new habits formed will serve you well in your private life and your career. People appreciate a speaker, friend or employee who is mindful of time frames and deadlines.
