At VETC (Vancouver Entrepreneurs Toastmasters Club) we have replaced the traditional Toastmasters Timer Light with a high tech solution. One of our members donated an old laptop which didn’t have a lot of computing power left in it which was the perfect hardware for the virtual timer light.
Using a computer instead of the traditional Toastmasters Timer Light has a few advantages:
– Makes Timer’s job easier
– Eliminates the possibility of Timer loosing track of time and forgetting to change the light
– Saves membership bucks being spent on the ridiculously pricey Toastmasters Lights
The file is available for download and free from any restrictions. You can use in any way you want. Click the link to give it a try or right click and select “Save Target As” to download it.
Behavior of the light is the same with the traditional light, turns green, yellow, red and finally to black when it is time for clapping the speaker down. Happy public speaking!
