Missed meetings are a nightmare and can cause clients to seek business elsewhere if they feel the service they receive is substandard.

Not only do missed meetings cost you time, they can also cause a client to lose respect for you.

The template letters and e-mails below provide you with the ideal platform to approach a client with an expression of your sincere apologies, if you miss a meeting.


Example 1

Dear [name],

I am writing because I was unable to attend yesterday's meeting. I'm very sorry for missing it, and I hope you'll accept my apology for the inconvenience it caused.

Sincerely,


Example 2

Dear [name],

I'm writing to apologize for missing our meeting last week. I was not feeling well and needed to get some rest. I hope you understand. I also wanted to let you know that I have been working on the project, and have made progress on it.

I look forward to talking with you soon!


Example 3

Dear [title],

I am so sorry I missed our meeting today. It was an emergency, and I know how much you rely on my input. I also know how important it is for us to be able to coordinate with each other. Please let me know if there's anything else I can do to make up for this.


Example 4

Dear,

I am so sorry that I missed the meeting. I was having a difficult time with my son, and he had an emergency with his school. I got stuck in traffic on my way to the meeting, and by the time I got to it, it had already started.

Thank you for understanding and please let me know if there is anything else that can be done to make up for my absence.

Sincerely,


Example 5

Dear [client name],

If there's anything else you need from me, please let me know!

Dear [name],

I'm sorry to inform you that I will be unable to attend the meeting on [date]. It's something that has been in the works for a while, and I've tried my best to reschedule it, but it looks like it will just have to wait until next week.
