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.
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。
section director , 课长
colleague , 同事
come drop by, 过来玩
needless to say 不用说
