I will be doing a proper write up on last week's technology event. The way the event worked was, so I’d have a rough idea of how many people were going to come, recruiters paid a £20 deposit that is refunded to them after they attend the event. These are two emails I got on Friday from event attendees.
"Many thanks for organising yesterday. Thoroughly worthwhile as well as being thoroughly enjoyable! No need to return my deposit. Please donate to your nominated charity."
"Thanks for organizing the event yesterday – it was good. I would like the £20 refunded please, rather than giving it to one of your charities. When and how will it come back to me?"
Nothing wrong with wanting your money back but a little tight to actually spell it out!!
