Ok, I am not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but I need some help.
My long time Mentor and a major reason for me moving from Software Developer to VP of a Division is retiring and my company is having a party this coming Friday night. It is not a roast, but there will be time available to anyone that wants to say something. Obviously, I want to say something, but what is expected?, what is appropriate? and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I have some thoughts already, so I will post them in another post. I am a little worried that the rest of the company may not appreciate nor care what he has meant to me and my career.
