There's something to celebrate: the success of a business division, the special achievement of a member of staff, outstanding progress in research and development, or quite simply an organisation's special birthday or anniversary.
For me, a friendly smile is a matter of course at all of these occasions, and with it a sense of personal warmth and sincerity. But a competent address is equally crucial – after all, the reason for the award is as important as the award itself. The path is also the goal. And this is something everyone in the audience should understand. Let's celebrate together!
