One thing your personal assistant and virtual executive assistant can do is send a meeting confirmation email on your behalf. Sending an appointment confirmation email not only helps make your schedule more predictable, but it also adds a touch of professionalism to interactions with clients and prospects that will help you grow your business.
Since its inception and patenting in 1979, the electronic calendar was introduced as a means to help you keep track of your time and, ultimately, make your life easier. Fast forward to today: meetings are a time-suck and scheduling them, doubly so. Then, just when you think you’ve successfully scheduled one, a change in circumstances or, god forbid, an error in the invitation, forces you to cancel and reschedule.
If this sounds familiar, have no fear.
While I suggest you take a look at ways to optimize your scheduling processes overall, I’m going to focus on one aspect of them here: the calendar invite. Though seemingly innocuous, any errors within the invitation are disruptive for all parties involved. Clearly, it’s important to develop a way to communicate clearly and concisely in order to limit the amount of confusion that could be caused by any misunderstandings.
