I'm writing a letter asking for feedback from someone who is an expert on the topic. I would like to indicate that I am grateful for their input, and possibly how useful it is for me so as to praise them, but I don't want to give the impression that I am begging them to do something or that they would be making a huge sacrifice or to otherwise use hyperbole. Here are some phrases that I thought about and rejected:
- I would be honored/privileged/blessed
(too over the top, begging/groveling)
- It would benefit me enormously
(too selfish, I want to indicate that their input is valuable not how much I get from it)
- I would love
(somewhat better but doesn't really praise the expert or indicate how valuable the input is)
Is there a good word that fits my (vague) criteria?
edit: I would like to put the expert in the mindset that they would be demonstrating their expertise (which they might be more inclined to do), rather than just doing me a huge favor (which they might be less inclined to do).
