You Have Been Invited to Speak at Your Childhood High School. Write to the school. In your letter
- Make a suggestion about what you could speak about.
- Find out how long you will need to speak for.
- Ask how many people will be there.
I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I was both flattered and thrilled to receive your invitation to speak at my alma mater. The prospect of returning to the halls that fostered my growth fills me with nostalgia and excitement.
Given the diverse interests of high school students, I propose to speak on “Embracing Change: Preparing for a Dynamic Future”. This topic not only resonates with the imminent transitions the students will face but also underscores the importance of adaptability in today’s fast-paced world.
Before I delve into the preparation, could you please inform me about the duration allotted for my speech? Understanding the time constraints will help me structure my talk effectively and ensure that the key messages are conveyed succinctly.
Additionally, it would be beneficial to know the estimated number of attendees. This information will assist me in tailoring my speech to engage a small group intimately or address a larger audience more broadly.
I eagerly await your response and further details about the event. Thank you once again for this wonderful opportunity to give back to the school that has given me so much.
