Dear Mr. Hamot:

      At the direction of the Board of Directors of TechTeam Global, Inc., I
have been asked, as Chief Executive Officer of the company, to invite two of
your designees to join management's slate of directors to stand for election at
the next annual meeting of shareholders in May 2006. In addition to myself, the
Board will add two new, highly qualified nominees to its slate, both of whom
will be independent. With your two designees, the Board will have five new
members out of seven that we believe can help this company move forward and
execute on a unified strategy.

      We share with you the same objective of maximizing shareholder value and
believe that your two designees will add a positive and constructive voice that
will help TechTeam move in that direction. You have voiced your concerns and
exercised your rights as any shareholder should, and we have heard you and now
invite you to participate in a unified slate.

                                    - More -

      With the annual meeting of shareholders quickly approaching, we must
solidify our slate promptly. If you choose not to accept this invitation to be
part of this new Board of Directors, please notify us by Tuesday, March 14,
2006. Should you decline this offer, we will make our formal announcement of
this year's slate of directors which will include the three new members.

      Again, I hope your two designees will join us as I look forward to working
with them in the Boardroom toward the goal of maximizing the value of the
Company for all TechTeam shareholders.
