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 Im sure you will make even a greater director in the personnel department.2.为对同事的升迁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.这是相当“敏感的”演说。无论上司也好同事也罢，我们对于别人的晋升难免总会有几分“嫉妒”（ENVY）的心情。当然这种心情一旦暴露出来，演说就垮了。诸如“这次的晋升对您来说实至名归”（a promotion you richly deserve)这类赞美之辞乃属必要。NOTES：directorship ，领导section director , 课长colleague , 同事come drop by, 过来玩needless to say 不用说
