As you prepare to get up in front of everyone, put aside your own potential nervousness. Think about all the people who have helped you and to whom you would like to convey your appreciation. Sit down with pen and paper and bring each name, each face to mind. Write down your thoughts and feelings as if you were talking to that person, and do the same for everyone on your list. Strive to remember specific circumstances where each individual motivated you and helped you to this point. If you don't have time to, for instance, thank all your team mates individually, strive for one sincere "thank you" for helping: you wouldn't be where you are without them.

I would start by thanking them for bestowing the award on you. Then mention that it takes a village to raise a child, and at this point you can mention the principal, teachers, etc. Be modest and say that without their help you would have not been able to accomplish as much as you did.

Always use your own words. Keep it short and light-hearted. Thank them for the award and perhaps mention the daily work the school does throughout the year, through ups and downs, and say they also deserve an award!

My book won an honorable mention in a book festival competition. I will be attending the awards dinner where they want each of the winners to get up and speak. What do you suggest I say? Should I talk about my book or more of a thank you speech?

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes
November 15, 20160 found this helpful

Congratulations! People read your book, and that's pretty amazing too, right? Don't take that the wrong way. With all the books being published and available? It's pretty great yours attracted readers. I'd say gratitude is the order of the day. After all, if anyone wants to know more about what you've written, they're perfectly capable of picking up a copy.

Presuming your 15 years with the company have been good ones, MN, why not concentrate your remarks on thanking the individuals who i) recognized your ability and took the opportunity to hire you, ii) those among your co-workers who helped you with projects through the years, iii) anyone who mentored you / helped your career and perhaps iv) the owner(s) who provide jobs and products / services. Good luck, and congratulations!

Well done, Zaharaddeen. I'd keep it short and simple.

"Thank you. I'm really pleased and proud to receive this award. It's been a great course and I've made some good friends. I hope we keep in touch. Thank you all."

Something like that. If you are good at speaking to an audience you could bring in something memorable that happened on the course and perhaps thank the tutors. Best of luck.

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes
April 13, 20160 found this helpful

As one who has written many speeches for others, I can tell you to start with "Congratulations." You might like to continue by commending your co-worker for all the traits which (s)he contributes to an enjoyable workplace: lending a hand where needed, boosting morale by being cheerful, looking for solutions instead of laying blame (for example)?

I am an officer in a bank and my branch has accounts of all the schools and colleges in that area. One of colleges among them invited us to a seminar function and award function where I will receive an award on behalf of my branch and I have to say some words there. I am very hesitant about how I will do, as I have never given a speech anywhere.

Please help.

Be sure and say how grateful you are for the good working relationship you with the schools, and thank them for the honor. An interesting story that illustrates your work with them would be good; as would a funny story, as long as it makes everyone involved feel good, not embarrassed. Good luck!

ReplyWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

Sounds like a very nice "honor" for anyone/company to receive. I always found the best speeches were very short and included lots of thanks to other people/companies for their assistance/contributions. Also nice if you know of any actual "deed" where someone benefited from this "merger" between your company and the schools. If possible, try not to use "I" in any sentence.

Google a short question:

need help with receiving a reward speech.

There are lots of ideas/programs with "ready made" speeches that you can adopt/use to make your own.

Well how did you win the award? Was it your enthusiasm, dogged determination, or working 12 hour days? People like to hear other people talk about how they achieved their goal - it encourages them. Think about the techniques you used to win the award and build on that!
