    Hello,

    I know parts of this question have been addressed before, but I am still having problems with it. In the sentence " On behalf of (name) and myself, we would like to thank you....".

    Normally I would just avoid it be saying "We would..." but it has been written by someone else and I am proofreading it. If it said "On behalf of (name) and myself, I would like.." I think it would be correct, but the myself doesn´t match the we. Any advice?

    Thanks!

    It should be on behalf of ... and myself, I would like.....
    This is because one person (I) is speaking on behalf of another as well, but only 1 person (I) is speaking, so it is I, not we speaking.
