This leverages a cognitive trick hardwired into everyone's brain. When you are doing timing for a presenter and have to show one of your time cards (half time remaining, 10 minutes left, 5 minutes left, etc.), watch the presenter's eyes. Hold up your sign when it's needed, then, when the presenter's eyes come to the audience (even for a moment), lift the sign another 3-4 inches. This movement is too small for the rest of the audience to notice, but it automatically draws the presenter's attention.
