Toastmaster of the Day Lukas Calafell, IP5
Introduces supporting roles. Leads the meeting.
Timer Donna Knight, EC1
The Timer tracks the time for each portion of the meeting and signals the speakers and functionaries so they know when their time is up. For green/yellow/red visual cues, please use an object as big as your head or a similarly prominent webcam effect. For an audible cue, tapping a pencil or a knife against a glass produces a chime that is not too distracting.
