Frequently asked questions about Farewell Slideshow

There are a handful of ideas to make your farewell slideshow an impactful goodbye for whomever it is leaving. Most people expect a slideshow to be a series of pictures and videos set to music. Even though this is a great starting point, it can be too general. This leaves the directions you can take limitless.

If you need a little help knowing what direction to take, here are some ideas for your goodbye photo slideshow:

  • Create a flashback of memorable photos significant to your relationship.
  • Compile messages of good luck in their next step.
  • Ask others to write ways the recipient impacted others’ lives within your company, group, or family.
  • Ask contributors to include funny memories, photos, or inside jokes in their posts.

If you need further ideas, be sure to check out a Kudoboard example slideshow to get inspired on which direction to take on your birthday slideshow.

Depending on how emotional you wish to get, the right song with your farewell party slideshow can bring the room to tears. However, you can also select a song that adequately describes feelings of excitement about the new opportunities facing the person leaving.

If tears are your goal here are some emotional songs you will probably cry to while you make the slideshow:

  • “I Will Remember You” by Sarah Mclauchlan
  • “Here Without You” by 3 Doors Down
  • “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack
  • “Good Riddance” by Green Day

If your farewell slideshow is meant to be joyful, here are some suggestions:

  • “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” -Simple Minds
  • “On the Road Again” by Willie Nelson
  • “These Books Were Made for Walking” by Nancy Sinatra

Sometimes beginning a farewell photo slideshow can be overwhelming. There are so many directions to take and countless software options that it is impossible to know where to start. A Kudoboard farewell slideshow does most of the grunt work for you.

Begin by looking at this example as a template of what your slideshow can look like. Once you know what you would like the slideshow to include, simply select “Create Kudoboard”’ and begin creating. Our software will compile messages from you and others you invite into one board. When the board is finished, simply select “Play Slideshow.” The posts will automatically begin playing as a farewell photo slideshow ready for any party. It’s that easy.

Making a farewell slideshow for a boss is quick and easy with Kudoboard. Any Business or Mileston board can be displayed as a slideshow. All you need to do is create a board, invite the office to contribute, and find a place to display your farewell photo display.
