受賞スピーチ

 
受賞発表、受賞の受諾スピーチ、チャリティーはTOEICでも頻出ですね。メリンダゲイツさんのスピーチがありました。



Hi I want to thank you for a Bambi award.
Bill and I are honored and we want to share this award with you.
Our foundation is only a small part of the work.
Without the support of Germany, the world would not have been able to make such amazing progress against the biggest health challenges like eradicating polio, ending extreme poverty, and making sure all women have the information contraceptives they need to plan their families.
Thanks especially to those of you who signed up for the digital leaders group.
With your partnership we have a real opportunity to make a difference in Germany.
This is why the millennium Bambi award is yours.

協力への感謝は、こういった場では欠かせないものです。下記の3文は汎用性が高そうなので、いつでも使えるようにしておきたいものです。

受賞者の視点からのスピーチをみましたが、次は今度は賞を授与する側の主催者の発表をみてみます。

BAMBI goes to Bill & Melinda Gates
His visions define our world: As inventor and co-founder of Microsoft Bill Gates is one of the most successful businessmen of all times, a genius in the field of software development. He is the father of the PC but above all he and his wife, Melinda, are amongst the world’s greatest philanthropists. On November 14, 2013 Bill and Melinda will therefore be honored with the “Millennium” BAMBI.

Bill and Melinda Gates are role models with regards to generosity and philanthropy. They saw the entrepreneurial success and private assets achieved through the founding of Microsoft as a commitment to assume a certain responsibility in our society which prompted them to put the greater part of their fortune into the “Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation”. This Foundation is the largest worldwide and to this day has invested over 28 billion Dollars in aid projects in 100 countries around the world. Being role models for so many people Bill and Melinda Gates have managed to persuade over 100 international billionaires over the past years, to follow their example and join “The Giving Pledge” initiative that they brought into being. All of them have now pledged to donate at least half of their wealth to charities.

In the past twenty years the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has been fighting against extreme poverty and helped to improve lives and living conditions for people in third world countries. The substantial contributions that come from this Foundation have for example helped to reduce child mortality and polio cases. A combination of vaccines, malaria prevention, and improved healthcare for newborns helped reduce child mortality by more than 55 percent between 1990 and 2012. Supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation the global effort to eradicate polio has cut the number of reported cases worldwide from 360,000 in 1988 to 223 in 2012. In the US, the Foundation is committed to ensuring that students have the opportunity to receive a high-quality education. For instance investing more than $1 billion in Washington State to ensure a quality education, reduce family homelessness, and support the most vulnerable families.
