Timer Tips

  • One of the main things is to make sure that Tabletopics doesn’t last too long. They should be done by 7:40 p.m. or twenty minutes at the max.
  • I would be time conscious when you do your reports. We don’t need to know everyone’s time – only if they are qualified.
  • When you explain your job – again be time conscious and be succinct.
  • If this is your first time, get an experienced Toastmaster to sit with you.
  • Make sure you have the newly revised form. Some of the old forms have incorrect times. I’d print it from this website.
