Proposing toasts to dignitaries or select employees are happy moments. Doing them with panache adds to the event and enhances your profile as the leader of your people.
This is what you have to do:
- Set the scene with a short background of your relationship.
- Share an amusing yet meaningful anecdote.
- Insert comic relief with a little teasing.
- Spell out the ‘big achievement’.
- Conclude with a nod of support and invite guests to raise their glasses.
