Award Presentation Cheat Sheet

Good award presentations come from good preparation. Use this Presentation Cheat Sheet to prepare your comments for your upcoming employee recognition presentations.

  • Keep it personal.  Use the employee’s preferred name. Talk about the personal attributes that make this employee unique.  Share personal anecdotes. If there’s any question about whether the person would be uncomfortable with what you share, clear it with them first.
  • Be specific. Mention the recipient’s achievements and projects he or she specifically contributed to.
  • Keep the message aligned with the mission of the organization. Share how the recipient’s contributions support the values and goals of the business.
