Dear Richard,

I am sure that you are informed that I will not be in town from 25.06.2017 to 30.06.2017 as I am going out for an important meeting to New York.

I would like to inform you that during my absence, I have authorized Mr. Bradley Johnson to supervise the training sessions for management interns which is scheduled for 17.06.2017 and 18.06.2017. The whole training process will take under his guidance. He has agreed to be the in-charge of the whole process during my absence.

Therefore, offer him the best of your support so that he is able to carry out all the work he has been delegated. In case of any issue, drop me an email and I shall get back to you at the earliest.
