Don’t Ignore the RSVP

Here is some food for thought…You have received an invitation to a dinner/business event.  Read the invitation.   To whom is it addressed?  Unless the invitation is addressed,  ” and guest”,  attend on your own.  Reply as soon as possible.  RSVP or please respond, means you should respond whether you are planning to attend or not.  A reply can be made by phone call, postal mail or email.  Reflect your professional image in your email message.  It is a permanent inerasable document with your name on it and it is a reflection of you and the company you represent.  Be sure to include: date, salutation, short reply and complimentary closing. But most important… send a prompt reply usually within a week.
