SUBJECT: Business Talk
Good day. I received your e-mail earlier. I am looking forward to attending the talk about venture capital. Last week, I attended a virtual summit where Mr. Coll had a lecture. I am most delighted to learn that he is included in your roster of speakers; it would an honor to meet him in person. Thank you for your invite. I am sure I will gain a lot of insight from the talk. I will be there at 2:00 p.m. on the dot.
