What is a vote of thanks speech?

A vote of thanks speech is a brief talk, given on behalf of the organization, as a group to a specific person or group of people. It can also be given to the individuals who were responsible for the technical arrangements, catering, setting up of the event, etc. A 'thank you' speech should also be short and crisp.
