Retirement Speeches are a wonderful celebration of achievement and a life of contribution. They are a tribute to an individual’s devotion to their place of work and colleagues. Above all they are an acknowledgement of a career now coming to a end. This may be a time of great happiness and relief, but perhaps too there will be a hint of sadness. The retiree may be delighted the day is finally here, but they will miss the camaraderie of colleagues who have become friends.
In the middle of all of these conflicting emotions and contributions, your retirement speech can set the tone. It can find the right words to say farewell to someone who will be missed. These few words you say can be an elaborate testimonial or a simple farewell. It’s easy to personalize our retirement speeches as much or as little as you want. You can feel confident knowing that you have a professionally written speech to enable you to farewell an esteemed colleague, or express your own feelings on retiring.
J.C., from Texas (USA) said, “I was having a hard time putting words on paper. The speeches I received from you made it extremely important in pointing me in the right direction and exactly what I needed to help me write and complete my speech.”
