Declining an invitation
From time to time, invitations must be declined. The reasons necessitating regrets are varied, ranging
from a potential conflict of interest to a lack of time. Regardless of the reason for the refusal, the letter of
decline must be tactful and courteous.
The letter declining an invitation below is much more likely to produce a better relationship between the
writer and the reader.
Thank you for inviting me to speak at the upcoming convention of the Management Association. I've
always found it pleasant to visit Lahore in Spring.
Our firm recently began offering public seminars in various cities throughout the country. I am scheduled
to offer a 3-day seminar in Karachi during the same 3-days of your convention. Otherwise, I would be
happy to speak at your convention.
One of my colleagues who also has expertise in management sciences is available during the time you
asked me to speak. His presentation skills are excellent, and I am certain that he could contribute
significantly to the success of your convention.

If you are interested in contacting my colleague about the possibility of his speaking at your convention,
please send me a note or call me at
Best wishes for a successful convention
