Write a letter to your boss apologizing for the recent meeting you missed at work.
1) apologize for missing the meeting
2) explain what happened
3) say what you will do to compensate
I am writing this letter to apologize for not being able to attend the meeting you had with our client at our office, on Tuesday morning.
I deeply regret that I had to skip the product discussion. I am aware of how significant the meeting was, as we had been preparing on the presentation since last week, nevertheless, my absence was unavoidable.
The reason for not attending the meeting is that I met with an accident. I was on the way to office when my car collided with another car that was trying to overtake me on the highway. The accident was thankfully not a serious one, but, I was stalled due to the police interrogations for documentation.
Being aware of the criticality of the meeting to our organisation, I have planned to reviewing the meeting, with Sarah Jose, who was also present at the meeting that day. This way I could speed up on the changes that the client wants. Besides, I will ensure that the upcoming meeting with the client goes smoothly.
I look forward to your cooperation and support in this regard.
