Model Answer:

Dear Mr. Thompson,

I hope this letter finds you well. My name is Rajesh Patel, and I am one of the participants enrolled for the upcoming month-long training programme in the UK. I recently heard about the opportunity for one of the attendees to take on the role of a social events’ organiser, and I am writing to express my keen interest in it.

While I am enthusiastic about assuming this responsibility, I would appreciate more detailed information regarding the expectations and duties associated with the role. Specifically, I am interested in knowing the type and frequency of social events envisaged, any budgets or constraints I should be aware of, and the extent of support or resources provided by the training programme.

In terms of my experience, I have previously held the position of Event Coordinator for my company’s annual retreat for two consecutive years. I successfully orchestrated a series of events, including team-building exercises, cultural evenings, and group excursions, all while ensuring they were enjoyable, meaningful, and within budget. I am confident in my ability to create an engaging social calendar that would not only provide relaxation but also complement the training’s objectives by fostering networking and collaboration among participants.

Thank you for considering my interest in this role. I genuinely believe that with my skills and past experience, I can make a positive contribution to the overall experience of all the participants.

Looking forward to your response.

Warm regards,

Rajesh Patel.
