I need your help please. I'm responsible for bringing speakers to a reception. A reception is less than two weeks away and the speakers have not response to my e-mail nor voice-mail to confirm if they're coming. I need to know if they're coming by Thursday. Please help me write a polite letter to them and get their response by Thursday. Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Dear Ms. ___:
Hope your day is going well so far. I’m writing to ask if you could let me know if Mr. Allen Smith will be a speaker for CBD business reception on October 20, 2006 by Thursday morning. I need to know so that I can write the program/agenda and see what I can do or if I need to find another speaker if he’s not coming.

Would you also provide Susan’s email address? I would like to ask Susan if she needs anything at the reception such as projection, hand-outs, etc.
Thank you for your help and have a great day.

Dear Ms ___,

I hope you are well. Further to my recent communication, could you confirm whether Mr Allen Smith will agree to be a speaker at the CBD business reception on October 20, 2006. Please could you let me know by Thursday morning (12th) as I have to finalise the program/agenda or find another speaker if he cannot attend.

Could you also provide Susan’s email address as I would like to ask her if she needs anything for the reception such as projection equipment, hand-outs etc.

Thank you for your help and have a great day.
