Unable to attend the Seminar.
You are working in a Finance firm. Your firm got the invitation to the annual seminar held by the Finance sector. You have been selected to attend the seminar on behalf of your firm. Write a letter to your manager. In your letter explain:
- How you feel about being chosen for seminar
- What are your reasons for not attending
- What alternative should they have?
I’m honoured that our company picked me to go to the annual finance seminar. I’m glad I got to represent our company and learn from experts in the field. But I’m sorry to say that I won’t be able to attend the seminar as planned because of something out of my control.
I can’t go to the seminar because my wife is about to give birth to our first child around the same time, and I can’t be away from her at such a crucial time. It means a lot to me, and I hope you can understand.
I’d rather not go, so I suggest that another person from our company go in my place. I think Mr. John Doe would be perfect for the job and would get a lot out of the seminar. He has said before that he wants to go to events like these, and he knows a lot about them.
I’m sorry if my absence causes any trouble, and I hope you’ll think about the person I suggested as a replacement. Thank you for getting what was going on with me.
