The PTC Advisory Panel
The PTC is delighted to thank the following publishing professionals, who have agreed to serve on the PTC Advisory Panel. The panel was inaugurated at the end of April 2016 and the members are drawn from all sectors and a variety of roles. The purpose of the panel is to ensure that the PTC is truly in touch with the needs of the publishing industry.
Membership is voluntary and unpaid; each member has agreed to contribute across five areas:
- to scan professional horizons and report to the PTC about matters important to the industry that the PTC should take on board
- to advise on areas of publishing skills that are not covered in existing training courses
- to comment on new course proposals
- to comment on existing courses and advise on areas of improvement
- to recommend colleagues or contacts as tutors or guest speakers for courses at the PTC.
