Re: Grammar help please
Hi english_learn. Below are some suggestions for you. I have marked suggested deletions with strike-through text, and I have marked suggested insertions with bold, blue text. I have added a few notes in parentheses; those notes should be addressed and then deleted.
I'm from the US so I'll edit that way. You can use the date style you have as well though if you're writing for another country (although check Oxford for proper expression of dates because I don't remember off the top of my head if superscripts are used--I'm guessing they are not).
For your reference, my suggestions are based in Chicago style (and Merriam-Webster Collegiate for spelling).

Purpose purpose of this meeting is to review the planning process and understand the potential risks (Note: This idea would sound more complete if you said "risks of X."). Having the developers and testers in this meeting will add more value, . So so please tell me whom who I want to forward I should send/you would like me to send (Note: choose one) the meeting invite to. My I am working on a 30-million-dollar project in the area of service transition. (Note: This idea could probably benefit from a transition. It's not clear if this is a purpose or a topic that will be discussed or something else. Perhaps it is clear to your workers but it would be good form, in my opinion, to lead into this item with some kind of transition to identify the item.)
Re: Grammar help please
ps I meant to add that those are of course only suggestions. :)
There are certainly other options in most cases, but I have tried to suggest concise and clear wording for you that complies with standard editorial guidelines (and again if you are using British English you might choose to use a different date system, dictionary for spelling references, or word choice. I also believe that Oxford is more lenient about the usage of that and which, but I like to follow APA's guidelines for specificity in that case).
