Dear Ms Patterson
I am writing with reference to your e-mail of 18 October.
First of all, I would like to thank you for inviting me to speak at the event ‘Business Today’ as organised by the Chamber of Commerce. I am considering your request, but would be grateful if you could send me further details regarding the event.
I would be very interested to know the type of audience you are expecting and whether they are local dignitaries, experienced professionals or business students and so on.
Could you please let me know how many people you expect to attend the talks? I would also like to know how long my talk should be, for example, 30 minutes or one hour?
Finally, could you please confirm the date, time and venue of the conference dinner as mentioned in your letter.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
