I have received a few requests from my readers on how to write memos – which are essentially written messages from one person to another (or several people) in the same office or business organization.
Responding to your requests, here is a useful template to help you write effective office or business memos. There is also a link at the bottom of this post to download a sample to help you create your own personalized memo! The names you see in the document have been kept fictitious for privacy reasons while the contents are actual samples from a memo I’ve written for my company.
MEMORANDUM To [Insert recipient’s name], [Insert recipient’s designation] From [Insert sender’s name], [Insert sender’s designation] Date [Insert date of issue] [Insert Subject Heading] 1 [Insert Sub-Heading] [Insert body copy here] 2 [Insert Sub-Heading] [Insert body copy here] 3 [Insert Sub-Heading] [Insert body copy here] [Insert complimentary close - Optional] [Insert sender's signature] [Insert “Copy”, if appropriate – E.g. Copy Sales Department]
