Thank You Letters for Meetings
Here are a couple examples of thank you letters for meetings.
It can be important to show your gratitude for being granted a meeting with someone whose time is valuable. A well written, professional thank you letter will help nurture the relationship, while furthering the meetingâ€™s objectives.
A Few Tips
Keep it simple: Important people are usually busy people. Nobody wants to read through a wall of text to understand what your letter is about. If your only goal is to say thanks, you donâ€™t need to type out a love letter.
Use the letter to further your objectives: If youâ€™ve asked for a meeting with someone, usually there is a reason for it.
After meeting with a potential client, for example, a letter saying thanks for the meeting can also be used to help reinforce how your service would be appropriate for the client.
Lets take a look at an example:
As you can see, a post-meeting thank you letter can accomplish more than a show of gratitude. In the example above, Brad was able to increase the possibility of gaining a new client by specifically addressing a concern that was raised in the actual meeting.
It is important to keep any additional pitches brief, however. You should spend at least as many words showing your appreciation as trying to further your goals. Donâ€™t be a sleaze.
Another Business Meeting Thank You Letter
Below is a more generic business meeting thank you letter. Use it as a sample template off which to base yours.
When writing a letter to someone, its always recommended to keep in mind your relationship with the person to whom youâ€™re thanking.
Unlike some business correspondence, a thank you letter doesnâ€™t always need to be sterile and professional. If you have a good report with someone, keeping the note more conversational will seem more genuine than a stuffy, bland version.
