Subject: Meeting with sales team
My travel plans have changed. I won’t be able to get to San Diego until next Wednesday.
Would you please change the meeting with the sales team from Tuesday to Wednesday?
You’ll need to change the reservation for the meeting room as well. Also, I think we ought
to have some refreshments at the meeting. Could you look into this and give me some idea
of what if will cost to have coffee, tea, soft drinks and sandwiches available at the meeting?
If you call John Lenz, he should be able to tell you how many people are expected to attend
Thanks for taking care of this.
