One of the key objectives of the Public Relations Consultants Association of India (PRCAI) is to provide educative interactive platforms. This is where individuals from PR companies can learn more about the profession of PR and gain knowledge of associated marketing disciplines to become leaders of tomorrow’s PR world.
PRCAI Western Region has initiated the Knowledge Series to meet this objective.
The first in this series was a session in Mumbai, on July 22, 2005, where Atul Phadnis, Vice President TAM Media Research, conducted an interactive presentation on the Television medium. The session focused on how PR professionals need to understand the multiple opportunities present in Television, so that they can plan more impactful PR programmes for their clients. The 2 hour session was extremely well received by the attendees with lots of active participation and questions. More information on the TAM Research and the Speaker:
