When writing a farewell speech, there are many things to consider and remember. First of all is a speech to your boss very different from a speech for students. So it has to be written with the audience in mind.
If it is to your boss, you will proberly write in a formal tone and if it is for your students, you will proberly try to write a funny farewell speech.
You could for exsample start by thanking your colleagues and associates. Keep it short and do not begin to read up a big list of the people you would like to thank. If you are making it for students, you could tell about a memery you have shared.
It is also a good idea to meantion what you have learned and why you are sad to say farewell.
