The Chairman’s Speech

This post is in response to the ‘100 Word Challenge’ here, where links to other responses can be found, as usual. As you will see there, the prompt this time was a photograph of a piece of chocolate of some kind, on a plate. What I have written is entirely fictitious, but I’m sure there are many firms like this and I hope directors are as grateful in real life.

“Good evening, Ladies and gentlemen. I hope you’ve all been having a good time. I just wanted to come and see you all here for a few minutes. And it’s a real pleasure – not least because early this year, I wondered if the firm would see the end of it, yet alone have a party. Well, we have. And that’s every credit to all of you. You’ve all gone the extra mile to get and keep business, and my co-directors and I just want to say thank you. And thank you, too, for that piece of chocolate someone saved me.”

  1. If only…
    I am terribly behind with these at the mo; end of term has caught me head on . Hopefully back to speed soon.
    If directors had half the grace this one does, there wouldn’t be such a financial mess as there is now IMHO 🙂
