Hi Michael,

Great to connect via Scranton Connect! I’ve heard really good things about Dunder Mifflin and would love to get to know you over a cup of coffee or zoom call.

Would you have some time over the next week or so? Here are a few potential times, however just let me know if there’s a better time not listed:

  • Tuesday (7/5) 1PM or 3PM
  • Friday (7/8) Anytime in the AM
  • Anytime via this link

Looking forward to it!

I believe we may have met briefly at the chamber event a few weeks ago. It would be awesome to chat a bit and see if there’s any way to be resourceful to each other.

I’m based in east Gotham and I’m usually pretty flexible every Thursday and Friday in the mornings. Would you have any overlap in your availability?

Hello Pam,

I see you work for Dunder Mifflin. Do you know Kellie Kapoor? She works in customer service and is a longtime friend of mine.

Anyways, I would love to find some time to connect if you’re open to it. Would any of these times work for you?

  • Wednesday (1/5) 9:00AM or 11:30AM
  • Thursday (1/13) 4:00PM or 5:00PM
  • Friday (1/14) 8:30AM or 11:00AM

Happy to work around your schedule if none of those work. Hope to connect!

This helps to establish a sense of familiarity and provides context for the meeting request.

3. Proposed specific times for the meeting or availability for scheduling

All three examples propose specific times for the meeting or provide their availability for scheduling. This makes it easier for the recipient to respond and schedule the meeting.

4. Showed flexibility in scheduling

All three examples indicate that the sender is open to working around the recipient’s schedule if the proposed times do not work. This shows that the sender is willing to accommodate the recipient’s schedule and makes it more likely that the recipient will agree to the meeting.
