Just Look over It and You’ll Be Seconds Away From Easily and Quickly Writing a Memorable Send-Off Speech for Your Favorite Coworker or Colleague at work!
This Is What Makes You One of the Blessed People on Earth
There’s something special about finding a good friend who really loves and cherish you.
Such friends are hard to find.
And so, when you find such a friend you have to love them back and do everything to make their lives much better than they could ever dream of!
I know you have such a friend at your workplace.I know that person is about to move on and one of the ways you can show you care is by giving a unique and heartfelt farewell speech.
Do you have the talent or skill for that? I am not too sure because you don’t toil with words to put food on the table!
Well, don’t worry because I am going to show you in a minute how to do that with a proven example even if you hate speaking in public.
First, get this right.
You’ll Fail If You Do This
In this piece, I showed you how to get rid of mental demons if you want to succeed and I think you have to look at it again.
If you don’t , you might make mistakes and your friend and your entire department will never forget how you fared on at the farewell party.
Now, over to the example I talked about earlier.
You see, not only does having such examples make your writing much easier, you’re able to get ideas and phrases you can model your message after.
I love you so much and all I am looking for is that you do so well, so let’s quickly look this example.
Ready? Go grab your pen and paper and put down ideas that comes to you as we go on this roller-coaster ride.
Thanks to Corinne Murphy for letting us have it.
Now, here’s the full transcript. Study it carefully.
''Today is a very sad day for us in the office as we have to say goodbye to our wonderful coworker. He/she has worked with us for a long time and has never let us down. He/she has always been extremely professional, hard-working and a team player. He/she has a brilliant mind and always brought creative new ideas to the team.
He/she has not only been a fantastic colleague, he/she has also been a true friend. He/she always took the time to ask how his/her fellow colleagues were, always had time to listen and talk to anybody with a problem and was great fun in the office. He/she was always full of energy and happy to see everyone on Monday mornings.
He/she is a great loss to our company but we were lucky to have the opportunity to work with him/her. We all wish you the very best in the future. I know that whatever the future holds, he/she will excel and continue to be successful.
We will miss you but this isn’t goodbye as we know you will keep in touch and we will see you sooner rather than later. Thank you for everything you have given to the company.''
What mark will you have awarded this suppose you were a speech critic?
5/10? 6/10? 7/10? If you gave the writer 5 or less, or even 6 or more, then congrats!
You know what constitutes a good final address.
By the way, let’s break it down and see what went into it and use the insights learned to put down your exact thoughts and emotions into beautiful words
First, let’s look at the opening lines once more.
''Today is a very sad day for us in the office as we have to say goodbye to our wonderful coworker. He/she has worked with us for a long time and has never let us down.''
Comments: There are so many things we can add to the above sentences to make it sparkle.
If you can tell me the main thing left out, I will write your farewell speech for you for free! Yes, I mean it.
You just have 10 seconds to do that!
First and foremost, let me say that the introduction of the writer’s message wasn’t so inspiring.
To make it sound very persuasive, the writer could have used any of the ideas below to begin his address.
If I were him or her, I would have asked myself just two questions
- Am I very well known in this organization?
- Are there any new employees?
Questions number 1 & 2 might not be too useful if you are the boss.If the answer to question number 2: Are there any new employees? does not form a part of your farewell speech, new employees might be wondering who you are.
Now, let’s see how I would have turned things around if I were this writer.
Read this carefully please.
Hello and welcome everyone. Good evening, for those who were came to join us last week, Danny Markins is the past president of the Manufacturing Division of Baker& Beans Co.
Did you notice how I introduced myself? Sorry, I forgot to tell you one thing. Other than his or her name, you should always greet your audience.
Let me also tell you that there are also several ways of starting your speech with a bang! Got any idea what they are?
Ok…let me help you out. So,
…Here Are Some Proven Ways To Do Just That
First, you can begin with a short story about what brought you together as friends or… when your colleague first started working there or vice-versa.
Second, you can share a funny quote and tie its theme to an incident at the office or your speech.
Third, if you have ever seen any good or interesting movie whose theme centers around the workplace, you can draw some ideas from that and use it too.
Next, others simply decide to thank the person they are addressing and talk about their contribution to their lives or even how he/she made the work place fun and lively.
I want to give you an idea so let’s look at this creative example.
Let’s call our colleague Jeremy.
Jeremy, arguing with you is like arguing with my dining table - it’s beautiful and polished, but made of glass... and everyone can just sit around it.
But I want to thank God you left before I did - It would've been heartbreaking to move on before you.
Please note: If want to adapt this, make sure your friend won’t get offended. All depends on how close you both are though
Alos, you can share how his or her words and deeds inspired you to be a better worker! I think that should be easy.
Let’s continue from where we left from that earlier example
''… Today is a very sad day for us in the office as we have to say goodbye to our wonderful coworker....''
Here’s the continuation:
''He/she has worked with us for a long time and has never let us down...wonderful coworker..''
Ok, we all know he’s a wonderful ‘’co-worker’’. But I have question Sir.
How many years has he been working at the firm?
You’re such a great student! That was also on my mind.
Don’t you think that answer could have been a part of our introduction?
Now, let’s look at the example and see how we word that in relation the number of years he's been working. Please see the underlined words.
''Good afternoon everyone.
For those of you who joined ABC company Ltd last week our wonderful colleague is Danny Markins.
Danny has been with us for 30 years and he’s proven to be the wall clock of the organization!
Here’s why he’s nicknamed Mr. Wall Clock. 15 years ago, the president of the United States visited us right here…''
Don’t you think ears will perk up if I go on to tell the other workers why Danny’s nicknamed '' the wall clock of the firm?''
Why Not Entertain With This?
Again, for your piece to sound very appealing you should lace it with good stories
Wondering how to get those stories? A minute please.
I forgot this-After your intro, comes the body and it should comprise the following elements.
Idea number one: Any idea when your favorite worker came to work there? If he arrived before you did it, let your listeners know and how the experience was like.
Idea number two: How the experience was like you got to know him really well? Did you see him as a friend or brother or father or sister or..?
Idea number three: Talk about the circumstances or events or challenges that brought you together.
Remember to share those details as your audience will be very eager to hear that.
Idea number four: Mention how he/she impacted your life and how’ve become a much better person or worker as a result!
Idea number five: Don’t forget to thank him/her for everything he’s/she’s done.
Idea number six: Do you have some stories to tell about his or her frustrations on the job in a light-hearted way?
Idea number seven: Why you will miss him or her?
Idea number eight: Any sound advice and well-wishes?
Idea number nine: Why don’t you let everyone know how much he or she means to you by giving him a personal gift in front of everyone! Remember, actions speak louder than words!
Well, it’s basically how to get good ideas for your story line.
So, this is what I want you to do right now. Go back up this page and look at the seven ideas.
Now, piece something short together. Don’t worry about how it flows since you can always go back to edit what you wrote.
Here’s Corrine’s body…
''He/she has always been extremely professional, hard-working and a team player. He/she has a brilliant mind and always brought creative new ideas to the team.
He/she has not only been a fantastic colleague, he/she has also been a true friend. He/she always took the time to ask how his/her fellow colleagues were, always had time to listen and talk to anybody with a problem and was great fun in the office.
He/she was always full of energy and happy to see everyone on Monday mornings.
He/she is a great loss to our company but we were lucky to have the opportunity to work with him/her. We all wish you the very best in the future. I know that whatever the future holds, he/she will excel and continue to be successful.''
If you read through that piece carefully, you would have noticed most of the answers we got from answering those seven questions were used by Corrine.
You better go look it over if you failed to catch them.
By the way, things would have been very entertaining if Corrine had painted a picture in our mental eyes instead of just telling.
What do you I exactly mean? Yeah, I know you want to ask that.
Ok, let me illustrate.
She says that her friend had a brilliant mind, hardworking, professional conduct and ...
What if she had gone further to add reasons why he touted those admirable qualities? We would definitely have fallen in love with her choice of words if the writer had done that!
Ok…I really don't want you to struggle. So, let me show you how to do that.
Let’s look at these before and after write ups to give a fair idea.
Corrine’s example: He/she has always been extremely professional, hard-working and a team player. He/she has a brilliant mind and always brought creative new ideas to the team.
Our version(you and me): He/she has not only been a delight to work with, but he’s/she’s a friend that’s so hard to find like a four-leaf clover!
Did you notice how I used the simile above instead of touting her qualities using everyday language. That’s what I mean when I tell you to use words that paint a picture.
Corrine’s version: He/she always took the time to ask how his/her fellow colleagues were, always had time to listen and talk to anybody with a problem and was great fun in the office. He/she was always full of energy and happy to see everyone on Monday mornings.
He/she always took the time to ask to find out how his/her fellow colleagues and their families are doing. To me he’s like an angel of peace.
She always had time to listen and talk to anybody with a problem, no matter small.
I remember when I fell off the third floor the other day….well you all know the story so…, I experienced a severe backache months after surgery had been done, and when I confided in him, he gave me this Chinese balm that helped get back on my feet faster…Want to know what that balm is?
Most of you have been hearing Chinese balm here and you have been asking me what it means. Well, I have kept it a secret because I wanted to tell you a nice story about that. You see, we began using it when Maria starting working here….
Did you see notice how I infuse a few details here and there to the original example? That’s how to bring life to your piece if you find out later that’s not too inspiring!
Please, see Corrine’s final remarks
''We will miss you but this isn’t goodbye as we know you will keep in touch and we will see you sooner rather than later. Thank you for everything you have given to the company.''
Hope you can do that too right? Or you still want me to help?
Sorry, if I do that you can’t think things up for yourself. My goodies above are too good to pass up.
So, go pick your pen and go over this short farewell speech and pour out onto that blank sheet whatever’s on your heart and you will make your friend so proud of you and your quality as a good speaker will be noted by your bosses,thus making you respected by your colleagues too.
Sorry, did I tell you the incredible story of how workers are writing best farewell speeches without lifting thier fingers? And how you too can do same? Ignore at your own risk and you might embarrass yourself!
What do you think is the best gift a friend has ever given you?
You might not agree with me when I say words are the priceless gifts you’ve ever got from that special friend at your workplace.
Consider when he or she helped you out or even encouraged and supported you when you were down and you’ll agree with me that inspiring words made all that possible.
Well, that favorite co-worker has to leave….too bad…and he or she deserves nothing but the best from you.
I know you’re probably thinking of giving him or her something cool in private but you can’t go wrong if you grab the mic and say something sweet about him or her as your words will make all the difference and even deepen your bonds of friendship!
We know how hard coming up with the right words to help you say something sweet and memorable can be.
That’s why we are giving you a rare chance to come up with something inspiring and funny without pulling your hair out!
