Peter and Ariel Lamka, CEO

Tan Republic



Dear Mr. and Ms. Lamka:


To ensure a wonderful experience for your guests, I am pleased to propose a two-week training course to educate your brand new staff to become qualified and familiar with Tan Republic procedures. The two-week course will prove to be an enjoyable and educational experience and I look forward to assisting Tan Republic with new employees.




Congratuations on operating a well-functioning company. I know that you plan to provide well-prepared and professional service to your guests. As Tan Republic increases the number of emloyees in the south, the need for well-trained and qualified staff grows greater. The tanning business culture is unique in comparision to the traditional retail business style. I am proud to deliver a detailed crash course in tanning business culture for your new staff. I promise that my two-week program will (a) be educational and informative, (b) improve professional speech, etiquette, and professionalism as monitered by a well-trained Trainer, (c) include practice rounds and mock scenarios so your staff will be comfortable in real-life situations, and (d) be enjoyable.


Proposed Plan


I have experience in creating and leading training programs from several educational opportunities presented through Clark College in Vancouver, WA and Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. I present the following proposal:


Trainers. The most radical component of my training proposal is arguably the idea of having specific employees who are trained as Trainers. I would love the opportunity to teach Trainers about training. The term petagogy is appropriate here as I would be teaching about teaching.


Job Shadowing. For optimum understanding, I would suggest that new employees spend time job shadowing a Tan Republic Trainer. The Trainer can offer insight and provide the necessary educational experiences for new employees.


Mock Scenarios. Trainers will provide many real-life situations in a mock setting, providing time for new employees to practice their new roles. New employees will be given a salon tour and lotions sales pitch script to memorize and rehearse. After the two-week training period, new employees will have the ultimate mock scenario test with you, the owner, as they practice their salon tours and lotion sales pitch.




With your approval, this is the schedule that I have developed for new Tan Republic employee training (dates are flexible and can be adapted to any days):

Hour 1: Introduction to Tan Republic and job shadowing

Hour 2: Presentation of salon tour and lotions sales pitch

My services are a perfect match for Tan Republic and your employees will be more comfortable with Tan Republic business styles as a result of training. I have already taken the inititive to prepare all the presentations and curriculum needed for any number of new staff. Once you have authorized this plan, we can discuss this training course in detail. If you’re comfortable with proceeding with a new training program, please let me know as I would love to help with the future of Tan Republic’s new employees!
