Prepare yourself to give recognition
Take time to do some advance preparation in thinking out or writing down some notes to specifically thank and appreciate an individual. Impromptu public speaking comes naturally to very few and that’s okay. A few well thought out sentiments, prepared ahead of time, will take the pressure off of you as the presenter and make the person and their actions being recognized the focal point of the moment.
