Dear George,

Thank you for the great meeting yesterday, and I believe that it was a great success because various important points were discussed as well as possible bottleneck points that could hinder the progress of the project. Based on what was discussed, I believe that I could have a solution to the possible bottlenecks and would like to discuss the matter further with you.

Speaking of discussions, would you be available next week for a proper meeting and brainstorming session. I can prepare the necessary items as well as points of discussion ahead of time.

I will call you by Monday to confirm your meeting availability.

Sincerely,

Jean Gray
