Dear [Recipients Name],
I was impressed with your presentation the other day. Your visual tools were useful. However, I wish to comment on one thing. Some of the jokes you used were not appropriate for the audience. Even though they are funny, these jokes should not be utilized in a business presentation. The audience might get offended. There are many jokes that you can use to lighten the mood of your delivery without being offensive to others.

Further things to consider when writing suggestion letters to speakers, performers
Suggestion letters are letters written to give an option, recommend something or give a point of view on an issue. A suggestion letter can be written to either request for a suggestion or give a suggestion requested for. The letter can be formal or informal based on the setting. In a business setting the letter should be formal and professional while in a personal or private setting the letter can be informal and casual. A suggestion letter should be sent promptly and should provide the best advice to help the recipient solve the issue at hand.
When writing suggestion letters, you need to be genuine. State that the opinion you are giving is up to the best of your knowledge. If you have given any suggestions successfully in the past, this is a great opportunity to refer to the effectiveness of those suggestions. Be courteous and assure the recipient that you have carefully analyzed the situation and that the given recommendation is the best solution or settlement. Do not forget to mention any potential benefits of the given recommendation. Be polite and maintain a soft tone. Conclude by asking the recipient to contact you in case of any queries.
Letters to Speakers, Performers
Letters to speakers and performers are letters written to people who give speeches at public events and those who entertain audiences. Whether you are organizing a special event, business conference, or graduation ceremony, the speakers and performers you invite will be among the primary attractions. They can give valuable insights and add prestige to your organization. Whatever the theme of your event, the speakers and performers must be suitable for the event as well as the audience. The best speakers and performers are usually booked months in advance. Therefore you should ideally send your invites six to twelve months prior to your event.
Well-drafted letters to speakers and performers will ensure that the parties involved understand all the details of the event. Begin with the right address and salutation. Introduce yourself and mention the objective of your letter. Be specific about what you expect from the recipient. Include relevant information such as date, time, and venue of the event. If applicable, mention any financial arrangements regarding any travel expenses, the fee for the recipient, or honorarium. Include the date for a response and your contact details. Close the letter on a positive note. You may attach the event's program.
