Dear Mr. Smiths,

I was in the audience last Thursday when you spoke about Just In Time (JIT) and Total Quality Management (TQM). Your talk was inspirational–I took five pages of notes–and I enjoyed meeting you.

Because you are a leader in the Ft. Collins business community, your advice and ideas are of value to me. After 13 productive years here (summary of accomplishments enclosed), I am seeking to make contact with other Ft. Collins business executives who may be in a position to provide me with advice regarding my next career step.

I will call you next Thursday between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m., and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts about where you think someone with my skills and abilities might be needed. Please note, I will not be asking you for a position in your firm. I ask only for five minutes of your valuable time, and the benefit of your experience.

Many thanks!

Douglas P.
