Speech! Speech! Your Guide to Great Recognition Speeches

December 5, 2012

Let’s face it, if you wanted to be standing in front of a group of people giving speeches, you would have become a professor or a comedian. But no, you’re in the business world, and you’re supervising and managing others or running a business because you enjoy mentoring and coaching and developing strategies and achieving business success.
But from time to time you still might find yourself in front of a crowd giving a speech – about a great employee and all the wonderful things she or he has done to make your business a better place for customers and other employees.
And you might not be too comfortable doing that, right?
Even the most experienced leaders sometimes clam-up and get nervous or self-conscious when it comes time to make a speech.
Making speeches is an art in itself, especially if you want the audience to be entertained and the subject of the speech to be elevated and honored. It’s not easy to do all that when you have a limited amount of time and all eyes are fixed on you. Fortunately, Terryberry is here to save your day with some free guidance on how to make a great employee recognition speech.
Just follow this link to a short recorded webinar by Terryberry’s own managing partner, Mike Byam.  Byam tells succinctly and straight-forwardly how to put together a nice speech to highlight an employee’s special accomplishments.  The page features several tips on the material you should and should not include in an employee appreciation speech to leave the employee feeling ten feet tall by the end of the speech.
