Congratulations, Mr. Hoffman, on your promotion to the managing director of the personnel department. Under your directorship, I am sure the department will grow even stronger and more closely united.
Also, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for being our section director. Needless to say, You have always been a GREat boss, and I'm sure you will make even a GREater director in the personnel department.
I want to say congratulations to you, Jim, for your promotion to sales manager. You have been a GREat colleague as well as a good friend. And I am proud of you.
good luck, Jim, and come drop by our office any time.
這 是相當“敏感的”演說。無論上司也好同事也罷，我們對于別人的晉升難免總會有幾分“嫉妒”（ENVY）的心情。當然這種心情一旦暴露出來，演說就垮了。諸 如“這次的晉升對您來說實至名歸”（a promotion you richly deserve)這類贊美之辭乃屬必要。
section director , 課長
colleague , 同事
come drop by, 過來玩
needless to say 不用說
