Both companies have unique profiles and pioneering histories. BPC was the first company in the UK to bring all publishing services under one roof, back in the 1970s, and it provided those services to publishing houses, universities, corporates and international organisations. Thorogood Publishing is not only renowned for its personal development, business and general interest titles, but also for its skills and experience in producing distance learning courses, including online training modules.
What this means in practical terms is that every aspect of modern publishing in all media and formats is covered. Whatever challenges the 21st Century demands in terms of media services, the Strategic Alliance can meet them. Whether it's professional writers for company histories or corporate strategies, conferences, distance learning courses available as downloads or online, or ebooks and data analysis presented as websites, DVDs or streamed, the two companies can do it. One stop, from concept to the shop or web window.
The creation of 'own brand' books and brochures, the complicated production of multi-lingual texts and ebooks, the corporate anniversary, the ongoing series of guides, the course literature and development to achieve a qualification, these are all areas of the expertise of the two companies. Colin Walsh and Neil Thomas have more combined years of experience in publishing than they care to admit to, but there are few projects worldwide in which they could not play a role.
Publishing? That's only a part of it.
