I have just been informed that on my last day (Friday) my company will be hosting a luncheon for me with 30 colleagues attending.
This is usually fairly informal. People mingle and talk amongst themselves whilst eating and one of my bosses will probably say a few words. This worries me as I don’t do too well with speeches.
Is there a correct way of writing a leaving speech or responding to one? I would really appreciate some ideas or thoughts on what I should say or how I should frame this.
