Welcome Speech (For Educational Institutions)

All the world’s a stage and all the men and women are merely players.

Good morning/afternoon/ evening to our respected principal sir/ ma’am (his/her name), our teachers, and students present here. The quote that you all have heard just now is one of the most significant quotations by William Shakespeare from his play As you like it. In fact what can better describe human life in such lucid terms? Why we have gathered today is not unknown to us. We observe Shakespeare week, commemorating the 400 years of the death anniversary of the Bard of Avon.

Shakespeare is more intimate to us than anyone else, principally to the Bengalis whose thirst for plays and sonnets rises out of this man. Today is the 4th day of the week and we have arranged for a seminar to learn more about the unknown features of the writer. Many students submitted their papers for this seminar, out of which five have been selected for their presentation.

So I will call our students onto the stage for delivering their lectures. Each student will be given a time of 5 minutes and extra 2 minutes to answer the query of the audience. But before that let us invite our principal, respected (his/her name) to do our opening speech for today’s seminar. Sir/ma’am, the stage is all yours.

Welcome Speech (For Business Purposes)

We have gathered today to conduct a seminar on the importance of corporate communication in India and the global scenario of the same.

Thank you so much sir/ ma’am for motivating our students like this.

The topic of the paper is Shakespeare, the father of all theatres. Let us see what he/ she has to say about his/ her presentation.

After the chief Guest’s Speech (For Business Purposes)

Thank you so much sir/ ma'am for such great insight.

After the First Participant's Speech (For School/Educational Institution)

Thank you so much (student’s name) for this wonderful paper. Indeed this paper gives us insight into how Shakespeare has given the theatre a whole different perspective. When Shakespeare writes plays he speaks of mankind. He is contemporary and so is his works.

After the Fourth Participant’s Speech (For Business Purposes)

The speech was really powerful that clearly states the reasons behind the crisis in corporate communication. During such times when the reputation of an organization or any company is at stake, then the responsibility of the communication department enables us to address the crisis. 

Now we have arrived at the end of the seminar. I will call upon the dias Miss (her name) who will share with us the perspectives of careers that corporate communication is associated with.
