Business Thank You Notes for Corporate Speakers

Business thank you notes can be great tools of encouragement.

For instance, most of know by experience how much work goes into a good presentation.

Presenters often work for weeks on a talk that may last only 30 minutes.

The background research alone can consume a great deal of time. Statistical, environmental or other data must be gathered.

Surveys or interviews are sometimes required.

So, if a busy colleague has gone the extra mile to deliver an exceptional presentation, a note of thanks is definitely in order!

The following business thank you notes can be used to thank a coworker for a compelling presentation made in the workplace.

Business Thank You Notes

Just a note to congratulate you on the outstanding presentation you made today on corporate social responsibility. Your point that socially responsible business practices will enhance, rather than diminish profits, was spot on.

This is something that upper-level managers like myself can never afford to forget; particularly in today's super-competitive marketplace.

Thank you for a most engaging talk. You have challenged each of us to help repair the reputation of business by developing a reputation for reliability and fairness.

Best wishes,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



I came away from your lecture last night with a renewed excitement for sustainable building design. Congratulations and many thanks for a great presentation.

Your argument on the long-term benefits of green architecture for the environment was compelling. Your statistical and visual data really helped to drive your points home with the audience.

Thank you for your careful preparation. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Sincerely,

More Business Thank You Note Examples

We have all been raving about your presentation to the board last month. I knew you had it in you--Congratulations!

Your courage and integrity to tackle some of our most pressing management issues was admirable. No one could have done a better job.

As I said before, you had no reason for concern about the meeting. Your talk was the shot in the arm that we all needed. Paul is sure to call on you to present again.

Wishing you continued success,

Sincerely,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Congratulations on the great speech you gave at the shareholders' meeting!

As you so eloquently stated, the technology deficit has indeed become a major issue.

I was especially impressed by your PowerPoint presentation.

Your supporting data really brought the depth of the problem home to the shareholders.

There is no doubt that you will be called upon to present again. I wish you much continued success. We are all looking forward to hearing you again soon.

Best wishes,

How to Write a Thank You Letter to an Interviewing Panel

thank you letter to panelists

Would you like to have a panel be the highlight of your event? It doesn’t happen by chance. It happens when you have a master moderator take the reins.

Why hire a master moderator?

You want to have a panel of industry experts at your meeting because you know your group wants to hear their current thoughts. But you know none of them are good enough speakers to hold the group’s attention on their own. So you decide to have three or more of them share on a panel.

You’ve witnessed panel discussions at meetings that were either a hit or a gigantic, boring miss, where the audience members left in droves, or got a lot of work done on their smartphones. In either case, who is responsible? The organizer who invited the panelists and moderator? The moderator? The panelists?

A master moderator can make a panel the hit of a meeting. Although excellent moderators make it look easy, it really isn’t. It takes a lot of work to clarify the expectations of the organizer, pinpoint the needs of the audience, pre-interview each panelist, target questions to each panelist’s strength, and listen closely enough to each panelist’s comments to ask follow-up questions on the fly and make real-time modifications.

Many people believe if they are comfortable in front of a group, they can moderate a panel. This is far from the truth. While comfort in front of an audience is essential, just being at ease isn’t the only critical skill needed.

A master moderator helps shape the session. I was recently asked to moderate a panel of thought leaders on “Grow Your Business with New Internet Strategies: Five Experts Share Best Practice Secrets.” Here’s some of what went into my moderation of the panel:

  • Worked with the orginator to refine the objective of the program.
  • Researched the topic to make sure I understood the general concepts.
  • Interviewed each of the 5 panelists ahead of time to go over the outline and see where s/he had comments on each section.
  • Estimated times for each section of the outline to make sure it all fit in the allotted time frame.
  • Set the ground rules for how the program would be run and communicated that to the audience.
  • Suggested the organization’s leaders be table hosts to ensure tablemates were introduced, and facilitate the round table discussion. Sent the leaders the guidelines for their role.
  • Included a 10-minute audience discussion at their round tables to share ideas they received that they could implement.
  • Asked that questions be submitted through the table hosts on 3~5 cards and which were then vetted and prioritized by the program coordinator so only the most relevant questions were asked during the Q&A.
  • Assured an audience-friendly set up by having the panelists sit on high bar stools on a riser without a table, to give a more open feel. Normally panelists sit behind a table, often without a riser, and it is hard for the audience to see or connect to them.
  • Created in-the-moment audience surveys so the panelists would know the experience level of audience members.
  • Edited the agenda on the fly as panelists answered questions they were going to address later.
  • Added clarifying questions throughout. Kept bringing the questions back to what would be most useful to the audience.
  • Threw in occasional quips that got the audience laughing and kept them engaged.
  • While the panel session was 2.5 hours, I put in at least a day’s work to prepare for it and make it a success.


The client said this was the best panel they have ever had and one of the best presentations they’ve had in 10 years.

The comments from the audience said they weren’t bored once and the time flew by.

“You were absolutely outstanding! Thanks so much for the terrific and very professional example you set as a moderator – it was a pleasure working with you and participating in such a well-planned and high-energy panel discussion.” –Celeste Bishop

“Thank you again for facilitating the panel presentation. You did a fabulous job! Keeping the panelists focused, pulling from them great information, and keeping attendees engaged is no small task. You made it seem effortless. We appreciate your time and efforts in making this event a huge success!” –Rogene Baxter

(To the members of the group, Rogene publicly wrote:”The panel was superb and Rebecca Morgan’s skill as moderator was indeed impressive.”)

“Outstanding job getting the panel together and making this the best IMC presentation yet! Thank you!” –Jon Seidel

“You did an outstanding job.” –John Girard

“You did an excellent job, and again, I can’t tell how much you contributed to the success of the event and how much we appreciate your willingness to do this.” –Jeff Thompson

“You organized [the panel] very well. The pace was perfect.” –Chris Peterson

“You did a great job as a moderator.” –Redge Martin

 

For another 2-day international conference of travel executives, I was engaged to be the Master Moderator for the whole program, including some duties as emcee, panel moderation and large-group audience participation facilitation.

Here’s part of what went into making this a highly rated conference:

  • Worked with the orginator to refine the objective of the program.
  • Participated in several conference calls to hear which panelist had comments on which questions.
  • Estimated times for each section to make sure it all fit in the allotted time frame.
  • Set the ground rules for how the program would be run and communicated that to the audience.
  • Suggested organization leaders be audience hosts to facilitate the round table discussions.
  • Designed a 30-minute round-table discussion after each panel for audience members to share ideas they received that they could implement.
  • Asked that questions be submitted through electronic devices which were then vetted and prioritized by the program coordinator so only the most relevant questions were asked during the Q&A.
  • Edited the agenda on the fly as organizers needed to adjust the schedule.
  • Added clarifying questions throughout. Kept bringing the questions back to what would be most useful to the audience.
  • Threw in occasional quips that got the audience laughing and kept them engaged.

This quote was representative of the notes I received afterwards:

“It was such a pleasure seeing you in action! I was very impressed.” —Maria Luisa Londono Thuronyi Gema Tours, Columbia

Participants shared with me that they appreciated having a non-industry insider run the show. An insider would have, no doubt, added their own thoughts to the panel, taking time from the industry leaders and reducing focus. They also said my skill at shifting on a moment’s notice, making funny asides, and managing the clock and flow would have been very difficult to find in an industry moderator.

I love to moderate panels and would happy to discuss moderating one for you, especially if the stakes are high, say at a customer meeting or industry conference. Please contact me and we can explore your needs.

Thank Someone For a Speech or Presentation

thank you letter to panelists

Dear Attendee

On behalf of the National Association of Haitian Professionals (NAHP), Joseph Denis Thomas (JDT) Foundation, and the Haiti Research & Policy Program at the Earth Institute-Columbia University, we want to thank you for attending the 2nd Annual Conference on Haitian Diaspora Engagement & Innovation on November 1 – 2, 2013 at Columbia University.

In order to make next year’s conference even more successful we request that you fill out this post-event survey.   We thank you in advance for your comments and suggestions and we assure you that each will be given consideration so that future conferences and events will be even more of a success. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO COMPLETE THE SURVEY

Thank You

We hope that you found the conference informative and worthwhile. The primary goal of this conference was to bring together global Diaspora leaders and Haitian professionals as well as friends and partners of Haiti from around the world in an open dialogue, under one roof to discuss the issues facing our nation and to develop possible strategies as to how the Diaspora can become aware and more engaged in initiatives taking place in Haiti.

We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panelists provided in-depth insight, as well as, actionable and practical tools of engagement models, methods and mechanisms (3Ms) that have worked in other countries; and were able to share how the 3Ms could be utilized to aid the Haitian Diaspora to become more effective in the on-going development efforts of Haiti in key areas such as:  healthcare, investment, education and outreach.

Your presence helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together both productive and fun.  We wish you all the best and hope that you continue to be engaged with the Haitian Diaspora and the NAHP.  Stay tuned for upcoming events by visiting naahpusa.org.

Doing business creates a workplace environment where people are so busy with their work that they can think about nothing other than work. To get a business running successfully, the project holder has to give lots of presentations which are highly appreciated by the colleagues who attend the conference. A conference is a place where all the departmental staff gets together to discuss a certain important matter which would prove to be the best decision taken by the whole staff.

The objective of writing this letter is to extend your appreciation to your speaker who has delivered a meaningful speech at the conference. There are times in our professional lives when we need to seek advice from the experts. 

For this purpose, various organizations arrange a conference in which an expert can deliver his/her views which can prove helpful as well as beneficial to the people who are listening and they can then easily take decisions on the professional front.
