Gosh, there are so many different timers for so many different uses on sale, on every platform. But what makes this one different?
The Speaker Presentation Timer app:
📲 Syncs directly to the Apple Watch App (iPhone version only)
📲 Defines and stores different timings for different speeches
📲 Gives you the ability to divide each speech into separate sections which help with:
⏱ Practicing individual stories and sections of your speech
⏱ Ensuring each section or story stays on time
⏱ Keeps you on track by highlighting the next section
📲 Allows you to choose different alarm types for each section and the presentation as a whole
⏱ Visual (different colours) - helps with practicing and can be used on stage
⏱ Audio (choose from 3 different sound types) - helps keep you on track and on time during practice sessions
⏱ Tactile (Phone and/or iWatch vibrates with each alarm) - Discretely notifies you when each section or story should be wrapping up.
📲 Quickly determine where you fall off the tracks - so you can adjust your presentation on the fly
📲 Gives you the ability to quickly adjust all your timing, with one function, to cater to shortened times (you know, when the planner comes to you, and says, "I know you were supposed to be on for 60 minutes - you have to cut it down to 30 minutes)
📲 Has default 5 minute, 2 minute and 0 minute warnings that you can change, in addition to all the section timers.
📲 It helps you maintain the 4th wall by providing discreet reminders of where you are in your speech.
No longer do you have to pull yourself away from your audience to check the time. You no longer have to ask, "How am I doing for time?" nor, "How much time do I have left?"
In theatre, stage actors can never break the 4th wall. The 4th wall is the imaginary wall between the actor and the audience. Professional Speakers have the same limitation.
Every time you look at your watch or run to the lectern to check your time, you pull yourself from the audience and their needs. You are essentially going from "I am being of service to you!" to "I am up here doing my job - and oh, yea, I have 5 minutes left!"
You can set Speaker Presentation Timer and the Pro Speaker Presentation Timer to prompt individual components of your speech and stealthily vibrate in your pocket (or on your watch) as you reach your critical sections.
With Pro Speaker Presentation Timer, only you will know you're on stage with a job to do.
