Sincerely,


Jane

Revised Version
 

Hi Mr. Lopez,

I would like to remind you about our meeting on May 12, Tuesday, regarding our project assessment due by end of this month. The meeting will be from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the third-level conference room.

Our clients from Zip Pharma will be joining.  Kindly confirm your attendance. I attached the agenda for your reference.

Sincerely,

Jane

 

The email above is complete because Jane gave all the information Mr. Lopez will need about the meeting.  A copy of the agenda is also attached. Mentioning the due date of the project assessment report also creates a sense of urgency.

 

Tip


List down all 5Ws and 1H questions you can think about your message.  Make sure your written communication answers all of them.  Here are the basic questions to answer:

  • Who is the sender?  Who is the receiver?
  • What is the message?
  • Where will you get the information?  Where are the locations of meetings or events?
  • When do you need to send it?  When should the receiver respond to your message?
  • Why are you communicating?  Why should the reader care?
  • How will the reader respond?
