St Albans, Herts, United Kingdom, 2008/04/01 - Bob Little Press & PR – a specialist in PR agency related to the corporate learning sector – has parted company with the global e-learning producer, Tata Interactive Systems (TIS), after failing to agree terms for a new contract.
TIS will now be taking its PR activities ‘in-house’.
BLPPR began working with TIS in September 2001 – some three years after TIS established an office in the UK, to augment its operations in India and the USA - advising TIS on its PR strategy in the UK. BLPPR had also been advising the company on its worldwide PR strategy since 2005.
“We’ve greatly enjoyed working with TIS over the years,” said Bob Little, Senior Partner with BLPPR. “It has allowed us to expand our work in an international context – and cement excellent media contacts not only in the UK but also throughout the rest of Europe, the USA and Australia.”
