Apology Message – Samples and Tips

I am an ardent believer in apologies – because to say that everyone makes mistakes would be putting it mildly, it is a somewhat gross understatement of the fact. Mistakes seem to be the bane of human survival, and infractions – the bread and butter of co-existence, but rather than stand the risk of losing an ally at any and all levels a resolution could be reached by simply offering an apology.

Acknowledging your shortcomings/ admitting a mistake is never easy but has to be done – here are a few tips for writing an apology message that carries a tone that would deliver your true intentions with ease;

  • Start With a Greeting

Depending on the basis of the relationship is it important to address the recipient of the apology with their title in a short salutation before proceeding.

 

  • Go Straight Into The Apology; With Detailed Specifics Of The Situation

It is important to state immediately the purpose for the message as this would ensure that they are fully aware of your wrong and you are remorseful.

 

  • Acknowledge The Hurt And Damage Done And Its Implications

Include an acknowledgement of the implications of your actions. This should further assure them that you have given thorough thought to the situation created and you are full of regret.

 

  • Take Full Responsibility, Acknowledging Clearly That The Fault Is Yours

Resist the urge you might have to ascribe blame to anyone but yourself. While you might be making a valid point by also stating that they are equally to blame, it does nothing to help the already bad situation, and may fan the flames of anger even further.

 

  • Include A Statement Of Regret

State very clearly that you regret the situation and fully realize that it shouldn’t have occurred in the first place.

 

  • Provide A Solution To Ease The Damage Caused

To further strengthen your apology, suggest a means of solving the problem created, this should demonstrate your remorse and willingness to end all contentions.

 

  • End With The Willingness To Change And Ensure That There Are No Future Reoccurrences

Conclude the message with a gentle reassurance that the circumstance will not occur, to the extent that it is in your power to ensure.

 

Depending on its purpose and recipient, here are a few apology message samples that may serve as a template for yours;

 

SAMPLE APOLOGY MESSAGE TO BOSS

 

Dear Sir,

Kindly accept my sincere apology for my absence at the previously held board meeting with the stakeholders on Monday – it was the result of a personal situation which required immediate attention, but not withstanding, I realize the significance of the meeting to our organization and how unprofessional it was to be absent without any prior notice.

I truly cannot express my remorse, as I understand it must have been awkward explaining my absence to our customers who had expected that I would be present at the meeting, and I take absolute responsibility, knowing that this behavior does not measure up with expectations of the staff of this organization.

I have drafted apology letters, which on your approval will be sent to both customers and shareholders present at the meeting.

Kindly let me know if there is any other thing I can do to salvage the situation.

 

Sincerely,

John Doe

Relations Manager,

FXY Enterprises.

 

 

SAMPLE APOLOGY MESSAGE TO COLLEGUE

 

Dear Mr Franklin,

I would like to apologize for the fiasco that ensued at the customer service section yesterday while you made an attempt to draw my attention to a few overlooked details.

I am sincerely sorry, and I assure you that the incident had no preconceived intentions or negative motivation, but my outburst was mostly the result of my frustrations encountered in getting so much work done in such little time.

I take full responsibility for my actions and as I assure you that it won’t reoccur, I  would also sincerely like to correct whatever negative impressions I have made of myself, kindly let me know what I can do to restore our working relationship.

Thank you for your invaluable understanding.

 

Kind Regards,

Gloria Doe

Customer Care Representative

FXY Enterprises.

 

 

 

SAMPLE APOLOGY MESSAGE TO BEST FRIEND

 

Peanuts,

You have been extremely patient with me so this must sound like a broken record by now, but I’m sorry for not showing up to the party like we agreed.

In all honesty, I hardly have any excuse that is a justifiable enough reason to have let you down like that but I sincerely hope that you see that was not a deliberate attempt to spite you and I wouldn’t consciously hurt you.

I accept both the full responsibility of my actions, as well as the task of making it up to you in any way possible.

You are a wonderful friend, who I do not deserve.

 

Love,

Magic.

 

After all said and done, there is no apology as valid as the non-reoccurrence of bad situations. Nobody is above mistakes, but it is also true that nobody is indispensable.

Meeting Request Email – How to Write One (With Samples)

What is a meeting request email?

Simply put, a meeting request email is a document written to formally ask a co-worker or manager or any other individual to meet with you. In the email, you usually suggest an appropriate place of meeting, time, duration, date and topic of discussion. Traditionally this was done with regular letters but most businesses now use emails.

So if you want to know how to request a meeting via email, then read on. You may need to write an email to arrange a meeting with a client or an email to request a meeting with a manager or supervisor. You may even want to write an email to request a meeting with members of your team. Whatever the case, you can modify the sample meeting request email below to suit your particular need.

A meeting request email is typically written for a simple reason – to schedule a meeting. It can be seen as an invitation letter to a meeting.

The vocabulary and character of a typical meeting request email is dependent on who the recipient of the email is, and the purpose of the meeting in general – frequent recipients of a meeting request email include (but is not excluded to);  Bosses, clients, colleagues and subordinates.

Contents of a meeting request email

Again, the email structure may also be affected by the personal relationship the sender may/or may not have with the recipient; however, here are a few tips that a sender should consider including as part of the details contained in the email–

  • The Reason for the Meeting:

This should be immediately stated after the salutation, with emphasis on the importance of attending the meeting in the recipient’s interest.

  • The Date and Time of the Meeting:

The date, as well as the time of the meeting should be properly indicated for clarity sake; as well as to avoid misconceptions that could easily be avoided.

  • The Place of the Meeting

It is important that the venue for the meeting be communicated to the recipient; even if subsequent meetings have been held in the exact same place – leave no room for assumptions.

  • The Suggested Length of the Meeting

Stating the length of the meeting might help strengthen the resolve of the recipient to attend, as unnecessarily lengthy meetings cause a strain in productivity levels and are simply boring.

It is also important that the email subject is well written, in simple and understandable terms such as ‘ meeting request’

Depending on the recipient of the email, the following details could also be included;

  • Request For Follow Up After the Meeting
  • What the Recipient Would Gain From the Meeting

If the recipient of the email is a boss or client, it is also important to keep the meeting schedule flexible as they are likely to have it altered to suit their convenience.

Here are a few meeting request emails for varying situations.

MEETING REQUEST EMAIL TO CLIENT (SAMPLE)

*Clients are tricky, and as such the best way to go about an email in this category is to be concise and straight to the point, stating the purpose of the meeting and how it can benefit the client, also adding contact information in closing the email. It is important not to force a client to wade through unnecessary information that they may not even be patient enough to read through.

(Take note that meetings with clients should not be requested on first contact).

Sample meeting request email

TO: johndoe@products.com

SUBJECT: ‘MEETING REQUEST: XYZ PRODUCT ADVERTISING ‘

 

Dear Mr. John,

I am writing with regard to our earlier discussion about launching an ad campaign for your new product – our company has an impressive portfolio with success stories of products quite similar to yours and we would be glad to set up a meeting where we can discuss the matter further.

Does this interest you?

Kindly let me know so that we can set up a date and time that suits your schedule.

Janet Manuel

*Subsequent to sending an email in this format, a follow–up email could then be sent with details of a meeting venue, date and time after a response to the initial email sent; the clients may even provide their preferred arrangement, otherwise you may respond in this format;

Sample meeting request email

TO: johndoe@products.com

SUBJECT: ‘RE: MEETING REQUEST: XYZ PRODUCT ADVERTISING ‘

Kindly let me know if the following arrangement works for you;

Thank you again for your time.

Janet Manuel

MEETING REQUEST EMAIL TO SUBORDINATES (SAMPLE)

*Emails in this category are much easier to navigate as they are usually informational – you are the boss right?

Sample meeting request email

To: (Recipients)

From: JanetManuel

Subject: MEETING REQUEST: JOHNDOE PRODUCT ADVERTISING

Date: 8TH FEB. 1786

 

This notice is to inform you that there will be a meeting in (ROOM) on (DATE). The meeting will begin promptly at (TIME) and is expected to last approximately (TIME).

I suggest also that you take the time to make a list of any questions or comments you wish to make during the meeting. Such a list will ensure a more efficient and effective discussion.
Please make every effort to attend. If you are unable to be present personally, please send a representative to take notes and/or present materials. Such a representative should be able to answer questions on your behalf.

I look forward to seeing you at our meeting.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Janet Manuel

MEETING REQUEST EMAIL TO COLLEAGUES (SAMPLE)

*Emails in this category are often permitted to be in a less formal tone than normal –depending on the information being relayed in the email; it may reflect the personality of the sender as he/she is known in the office environment

Sample meeting request email

To: (Recipients)

Subject: Meeting Request: Celebratory sign-off  on JohnDoe Product Ad-campaign

Hello All,

As it was informed  us in the last meeting that the johndoe product campaign launch is scheduled for the  15th December 1786 therefore a sign off meeting has been organized by the management for us before the kick start.

It marks the success of our new project significantly – Therefore we are required to be at the “Banquet hall” sharp at 4pm tomorrow, hopefully, this would serve to motivate us to make the upcoming project a grand success for our company.

Come dressed for entertainment.

Thank you!

Janet Manuel.

 

Conclusion

That said, while drafting emails may seem like no arduous task, it shouldn’t be taken lightly as it communicates the professionalism and competence of the sender – and since email communication has become an integral part of how businesses communicate, there is the apparent need to be properly skilled in the process.

While there are a varying number of purposes that an email message could serve, this article will focus on writing a professional meeting request email that would reflect a sender in his/her desired manner.

Interview Decline Email – Samples and Tips

 

There are an astounding number of reasons why you might consider withdrawing yourself from the pool of applicants from the interview of a job that you may have otherwise accepted with open arms – you may find, soon after applying for the job that it no longer seems like an ideal match for you, or you may receive an alternative offer that promises much better prospects. Either way, if you are offered the opportunity for an interview, while the convenient thing to do might seem to be ignore the invitation all together, the more polite response, would be to in fact – respond with an interview decline email.

An interview decline email speaks not only of the quality of your character, but may also lead the recipients of the letter to consider introducing certain incentives that may encourage you to take the job – that is, if they consider you an ideal fit for it.

Here are a few tips going in:

  • Respond Promptly:

It would be somewhat counterproductive to wait till the last minute to send the interview decline email if your intention is to leave a good impression. As soon as you are asked to come in for the interview, let the company know that you would be unable to make it – If not for anything, to re-open the slots for other interested candidates.

  • Be Polite:

Show your appreciation for being chosen for the interview, while highlighting your regret that you would be unable to make it. Let the company at least know that you were pleased with the offer.

  • Be Honest

State the exact reason for declining the interview. In the event that it is for reasons you choose not to explain, simply state your reasons as such – key note however, do not lie.

  • Address the Email To the Interviewer

Find out who was scheduled to interview you and express your gratitude to them, while addressing them directly in the email.

This should leave a good impression for future contact.

Sample Email to Decline An Interview

Subject: Re: Interview Offer

Dear Mr Mac,

I am writing with regard to the job interview earlier offered me by your prestigious institution.

I appreciate your consideration of me as a potential staff, as I am well aware of – and the reputation of your organization goes ahead of you.

While I am thoroughly grateful for the opportunity, I would also like to politely decline on the basis of a similar offer I have recently received from ABC Corporation, which I have decided to accept after immense consideration.

I hold your institution in high regard, however, and I am certain that you have received numerous applications from which you will choose a more than adequate candidate for the job.

Once again, I am grateful for your kind consideration.

Sincerely,

Mabel Jones.

After all said and done, what is a job compared to the warmth of fostering friendships and maintaining a pool of contacts on which you could rely while on the best and worst of life’s winding roads?

Letter to a Best Friend – A Sample letter to my best Friend

What is a Letter to a best friend?

Sure, it’s the 21st century but writing letters is still a thing – and if you’re thinking about writing one you are not alone. A letter to a best friend is simply a written form of communication from you to the friend that you consider closest to you in friendship.

Whether it’s for the gentle joy of reminding someone that you are grateful to have them in your life – or it’s for a much more elaborate purpose, writing letters have always proven to be an effective means of communicating emotion, not to mention – psychologists suggest that it is therapeutic and an easy way to ease stress and give relief to tumultuous experiences.

Components of a letter to a best friend

There needn’t be too much formality given to a letter of this nature; typically, a lot of emphases is given to standard  letter structures, with suggestions that a good letter must be split into three sections, be addressed with regard to the recipient office or authority and be written in precisely universally accepted  language (excluding slang), and while these aren’t invalid in writing informal letters, the most important key (especially in writing a letter to a friend) would be to find your voice and speak from your heart – ultimately, everything else will take shape.

Below is a written sample of a letter you could write to a close friend;

Sample letter to a best friend

Letter or email to a best friend

Dear Maya,

I often marvel at how incredibly lucky I am that you are part of my life –  I know we have known each other a while and yet, I seem unable to get accustomed to the fact that we are, and have stayed friends for so long, surmounting daunting hurdles and beating the odds that life presents at such short intervals.

Thank you for choosing to be my friend. I know that love is deliberate and not merely the output of coincidence, I know that on the day when you first walked into class on the first day of school in 5th grade, that I wasn’t merely a choice of chance, because I have seen incredible people come and go in both our lives and I know you choose to stay – regardless of all my whims and caprices.

I choose you too – to stay with you throughout the length of our lives and love you, at your best and worst, in mine as well – when convenient and when not convenient, and to fight to guard the precious gift that is our friendship for as long as we both walk this side of eternity.

I hope to see you soon; I miss you – June cannot come soon enough.

Love,

Greta.

Housewarming Invitation Letter with Samples

HOW TO WRITE A HOUSEWARMING INVITATION LETTER

A new home is great excuse to have all your friends and family over, and a great way to meet your new neighbors. While making plans for your housewarming party, you’ll want to send out housewarming invitations, either physically or electronically, to invite guests to check out your new dwelling and save you the trouble of having to celebrate alone. However, writing a housewarming invitation letter can be very confusing, especially if you have no idea of what your letter should look like. This is why you need to learn to write one that reflects the purpose of the party and speaks to your guest personally, instead of hiring someone to do the job for you.

Depending on your persona and standard of living, you can either choose to make your party formal or informal and your style of invite has to reflect this choice. Before you begin writing any invitations, take a few minutes to plan out how memorable and what message you want your party to carry. Whatever style you choose must include the following details:

  • Date and Time
  • Venue and Address

EMAIL ENDINGS: HOW TO END YOUR EMAIL WITH EXAMPLES.

Emails have become the 21st century method of communication, especially in the business world. Messages sent by email lack the visual and auditory cues of real-life conversation, making them particularly vulnerable to being misinterpreted. Writing the body of an email is not as tricky and confusing as email endings. When you are sending out a professional or informal email message, it is very important to end your email appropriately.

Just as there is a style to how to address someone in an official email, and for the overall format, there are also guidelines in place for email endings. Some of those guidelines include:

  • Write a summary of everything that you’ve written, just to be polite and wrap the body of your mail up properly. Include a short sign-off to signify the end of your message.
  • To end your email, it is important to convey the appropriate amount of respect to the person receiving it in a manner that is professional and courteous. This means including a befitting closing and an email signature with your contact information.
  • Be careful with your signature. Be mature and include only what is necessary. It is important to have a signature that includes your basic contact information, such as your full name, phone number, fax number, work number, work address, work email, etc. Smiley faces and the like are not appropriate email endings.
  • Never use a quote to end your email no matter how inspiring or professional the quote may seem to you.
  • You can also include a short link to your website for business emails. Do not include a list of links as that would suggest that you are trying to oversell yourself.
  • Do not abbreviate your last regard. Write in full and keep it professional.
  • Your closing should remind the reader of the main thrust of your message and, at the same time, show your pleasure in communicating with the recipient.
  • Your email closing should also leave the recipient feeling good about you.

Casual Email Endings

Since most emails are usually professional, ending casual emails doesn’t require any standard format or guidelines. These are the kind of emails you send to a buddy from work, school or even family so be as polite and friendly as possible. Some appropriate considerations for ending emails such as this include: Best, Cordially, Cheers, Yours, Kindest regards, Warmest regards, I remain yours truly, Warmly, Take care, Have a great day, Happy Holidays, Enjoy your weekend, Keep up the good work etc.

Just be sure to let your email endings reflect your personality, professionality (for formal emails) and good manners.

Contents of an Interview Invitation Email of Letter

When writing an interview invitation letter, pleasure that you have the following in your email or letter.

The position that you want to fill

This is to confirm to the job applicant that this is the position they have applied for. Many job interview invitation emailseekers apply to many different companies and they could loose track of the position they applied for.

Date, time and location of the interview

This is the most important part of the letter. You want your applicants to be able to locate the venue of the interview and be there at the right time. If you know that your office location is difficult to locate, you may attach a map or give some directives.

The interviewer

Optionally you may add information about the person who would be conducting the interview. If you are a small business, you would most likely be conducting the interview yourself or with your partner. In this case, you can mention that they will be interviewed by the hiring manager.

What to bring to the interview

It is important to inform the applicant about the documents that you expect them to bring to the interview. Typical documents include original copies of certificates, list of references, copies of previously completed works etc.

What to expect at the interview

Would you be conducting an aptitude test? Would you be asking your candidates to perform some specific job related tasks? You may choose to let the applicant know so that they can come prepared.

When to send the Interview Invitation Email or Letter

You should give at least week for the job applicants to prepare for the interview. The more time you give the better. If you have a good number of applicants, you may decide to have the interviews on two different days. Some applicants would need to take time off their current jobs to attend the interview, giving them more time to prepare will increase your chances of getting a better fit for your operation.

Rev Rick Buffet
The Christ the King Church

Dear Rev Buffet,

This is to formally invite you and the rest of your church community for a grand worship conference entitled “Jesus Is Alive.” The worship conference will be led by Rev Napoleon Osteen from Grace of Heaven church. In the said conference, the primary worship band will be The Voice of Angels. This is the band that is famous for their album entitled “Believe.” The Voice of Angels will also be accompanied by other worship bands from several different churches.

“Jesus Is Alive” worship conference will be held on April 1, 2017 at ABC Arena in Port Coquitlam, Vancouver. The conference will start at 4:00 pm which may last until 10:00 pm. Admission is free. Only the freewill offering boot is placed at the main entrance.

Please let us know if you and your church community can attend this worship conference. You may confirm your attendance on or before March 20, 2017. To confirm, you may contact Brother Stanley White at (604) 568-6227. You may also send him an email message to stanley@churchofchrist.com for questions or confirmation. Should you plan attend the conference, you can also inform Brother Stanley about the estimated headcount.

Last year, the conference we had was a great success. Many church leaders asked for a similar conference, and this is the answer for such overwhelming request. We hope that this year’s conference is another great experience for all of us.

We pray that this conference will also be another avenue to unite the body of Christ in our city. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ continue to abound on us all.

Yours in Christ,

Rev. Joel Moen
The Church of Christ

Dear John,
We would like to invite you to attend our company party which will be held at EFG Hotel on March 28, 2017. The party will start at 9:00 am, and will end at 4:00 pm. This event will include several games and group dynamics. Alongside, there will be some stage shows and performances. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be served accordingly. Because of this, we encourage you to come at 8:00 am at the hotel lobby.

However, the party is limited only for employees in the mean time. In the future, we can organize a separate party in which the members of your family may also be invited. But so far, the company would like to start from its people. We hope you understand.
