I wrote a letter to a community council regarding a presentation I wish to make. I am writing a follow-up letter asking if they have an interest in meeting in person. (They indicated by phone that they did.) I want to state in my second letter what the points are that I want to bring out at the face-to-face meeting. How do I say that without saying "As a reminder, these are the benefits I feel my company can bring to your community"? It's the "as a reminder" that I don't care for. "I would like to point out that..." also seems like I think the readers are morons. Help?
I like using "to summarize" in those cases.
If you are hesitant on using the phrase you can omit it entirely as the information itself should bring enough attention. If you feel the need for a phrase then try "To give an overview" or "I'd like to highlight" as neither sound too arrogant.
