Dear Mr. Van Buren,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the very interesting and motivational talk at our conference last Thursday. I am sure the students found it particularly inspirational as they prepare to make their way in the working world.

Thank you also for the generous award donation that you made and for agreeing to present the grand price during the reception after your talk.

I am sure I speak for the rest of the faculty and the student council when I say we would be honored if you would consider speaking at future conferences.

With sincerest appreciation and best wishes.

Yours,

Alison Murrett
