Sample Graduation Script

Preparation, organization and collaboration are the keys for a successful event.  Based from the gathered data, I made an outline to guide the host for a smooth flow of the program.

Take note of the following:

  • There should always be program guidelines and script to be used in any events for a clear transition;
  • There should be appropriate adjectives prepared in introducing the speakers.

For the speakers & hosts:

  • Establish eye contact with the audience as often as possible;
  • Voice should be well modulated (not squeaky, low or loud);
  • Be optimistic and smile from the heart. =)

May this script be helpful enough.

    Your post about Muslims in 2016, i too didn’t know much about them. For instance i didn’t know the difference between Indian and Pakistan. But it wasn’t till i was out in Asia where i met a lot of different people from all walks of life. My perception of Muslims changed for me too.

    Not everyone is bad. Just a few. Just the same in Christianity, some bad eggs there too.
