If it's sitting on the podium, the speaker could see it, but the audience could not.... This doesn't have to cost megabucks and I'd kick in a few $$$ if necessary.

I don't think anyone wants an audible alarm going off in the meeting.
But a large digital clock would be useful, and in fact is pretty
commonly used in professional speaking.
