Hi,

We would like to extend our sincere apology in respect to the delay of the first kick off meeting as a consequence of our trainer, Lina lost her way during the course of driving to your office this morning.

Please advise on the above sentence... Should i write 'in respect to' or 'in respect of' I suggest the simpler and more direct 'for'.

You also have some syntax problems in the rest of the sentence, when you attempt to give the reason.

We would like to extend our sincere apology for delaying the first kick-off meeting, as a consequence of our trainer, Lina, having lost her way during the course of driving to your office this morning.

We would like to extend our sincere apology for delaying the first kick-off meeting. Our trainer, Lina, lost her way while driving to your office this morning.

'First kick-off meeting' sounds redundant. How often do you kick something off?Emotion: smile

Best wishes, Clive

Use in respect of or with respect to. There is no such thing as in respect to.
