Sample Email after Invitation Letter for Guest Speaker is Accepted

Once your invitation has been accepted by a guest speaker, it is important to respond with another letter or email, giving the speaker some more details and requesting some information from them. In some cases, this is the only invitation letter that would be necessary because you would have concluded the invitation verbally over the phone.

Please note that if the invitation has been accepted verbally over the phone, it is still a good idea to send a formal letter or email to the guest speaker or their secretary. The letter below is a sample that can be used either for a regular letter (place it on your letter head and add the address of the speaker) or via email – (add an email title).

This letter or email is also important because it gives the speaker a clear picture of how his day or evening would look like. You always want your speaker to know if you expect them to go with you to lunch or dinner before or after the event or if not at all. This way the speaker is not forced to stay when they had planned to leave earlier.
