同一個主題也能創造無限可能

任何形式的即席談話都沒有固定的方程式,這是一場沒有固定答案的考試,即便遇到同一個主題或情境,也能用不同的方式組織你想說的內容,只要能清楚、有邏輯地表達你的想法,就是一場成功的即席演說!

情境:部門同事Alice要離職了,在離別派對上,你要簡短地發表祝詞及感謝。

The F.A.T method

 

I want to thank Alice for working with us over the past 3 years. It’s been an extraordinary experience (1). We have achieved so much as a team, and I don’t know how we would have done it without her.

Alice, as we all know, is probably one of the kindest and most friendly people in the office. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her get angry with anyone or by anything, except that one time I accidentally deleted an important document for a team project in my laptop without a backup copy. She stopped talking to me for a month, but to be fair, everyone else in our team didn’t speak a word to me for 3 months after what happened (2).

With a grateful heart, I want to say thank you for the effort that you had brought to our team and all the great memories that we shared together in the office (3). I wish you all the best as you move on to the next chapter of your life. Good luck!

 

(1) Feeling(情感) – 以自己的感情切入主題「感謝並祝福同事Alice」,直觀地描述與同事Alice共事的感覺和想法。

 

(2) Anecdote(趣聞) – 分享一段自己與Alice合作的經驗或趣聞,讓聽者能夠更融入談話的內容,適時地加上一些幽默,也能讓故事更令人印象深刻。

(3) Tie back(回歸主題) – 從故事扣回到主題,除了重新聚焦聽者的注意力,也能在最後加強想表達的重點。

 

PREP

We have gathered here this evening to say goodbye to Alice who is leaving us today to journey onto the next phase of her career. And I’d like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for her effort and hard work during the past 3 years (1).

Alice has not only been an awesome team player but also a great friend to all of us. She is one of the most honest, reliable, and persistent people that I’ve ever worked with. Moreover, she has never hesitated to show her kindness and friendliness to everyone in the office (2).

During her time here, she had participated in many team projects, assisted in cross-functional communication, and always delivered excellent results. In addition, she is insightful and has always been a friend that we can turn to for help or advice (3).

Alice, your contributions will always be appreciated (4). Although we are all sad to see you leave, we will cherish the time that we spent together. I wish you all the best at your new job. Thanks for everything!
