Things to Avoid in Writing Acceptance Emails in Business
Often times, it is better to just say yes or no to an invitation. If you are not sure, it may be better to simply decline an invitation. It is quite unprofessional to say things like:
- I’m busy, but I suppose I can manage to come.
- I don’t think I’m a good speaker

V. Business Email Examples: Confirming a Speaking Engagement
Dear Dr. Ronald,
I look forward to meeting you on Thursday, May 23, to further discuss the business incubation programme that was designed by the World Bank. Thursday evening is a good time for me.
Two of my associates, Jay Abraham and Robert Kiyosaki, are planning to meet with you as well. We are very excited to be a part of this project, especially being in the same team with you.
It is good to send acceptances as soon as you can. If you fall short of time, apologize succinctly and continue with your letter. Also, acceptances should be brief and focused on the acceptance alone. Let your direct response (yes or no) be in the first line of your letter. Your enthusiasm in this kind of emails gives more impact to the email.
Deciding the right phrase to handle different situations can be very tasking, especially if English is not your first language. As a correspondent, you are directly involved in critical day-to-day interactions via email. This makes your ability to craft good email messages, using the perfect phrases and clauses, tangential to your business success.
There is a book by Meryl Runion that will help you to a great extent even if English is not your first language:
Perfect Phrases for Office Professionals: Hundreds of ready-to-use phrases for getting respect, recognition, and results in today’s workplace
Overall, this book will greatly improve your communication skills. It will also help you easily clarify assignments with your manager or projects with your clients as well as guide you in handling the inevitable complaints that sometimes follow sales of products or services.
