Dear Mr. Tom,
We of Excel Trading Co. would like to ask you to speak at our Annual Stockholders’ Meeting, Jan 01, 2xxx in Denver.
We wish to have you speak because of your reputation as an entrepreneur in the field of small businesses. As you may know, Excel Trading Co. acts as a clearing-house for small businesses and supplies ideas and seed money for new small businesses. Your recent article in Success speaks to the topic that we would like our stockholders to hear. “The Future of America Lies in Its Small Businesses.” We hope you will consider this offer.
Thank you for your time. You will find attached a sheet outlining all of the particulars: remuneration, schedules, hotel and airline arrangements. Please let me know by Jan 15 if you will accept this speaking engagement. You can reach me at 123-456-7890.
