A new home for TechJPR

By Daryl Willcox

12th September 2013

I have always been a big fan of the TechJPR networking group for technology journalists and PR people. We’ve sponsored events in the past and I personally wish we had made a bit more effort to be involved in this very vibrant community.

Well, from now on we will be a lot more involved as from today DWPub has taken over the running of the group from Andrew Lim, who founded the group in 2007.

TechJPR, formerly UKTJPR, has always been run by volunteers and that is one of the big reasons for its success. I appreciate that now a ‘corporate’ is behind it (though at DWPub we pride ourselves on not being very ‘corporate’), that could change things a little. But I am determined to stay true to the culture of the group and run it as best we possibly can for the interests of TechJPR members. To do that we want to hear from members what you want from the group – let us know!

We hope to announce the next TechJPR event soon, sign up to the newsletter to hear about that first, and if you’re not a member of TechJPR check out the group’s website.

Here’s the press release.
