Diary: Agency pitch to train body fails to run on schedule

It was a diary story waiting to happen. The Association of Train Operating Companies has delayed its first ever pitch for a lobbying agency - because its members couldn’t get there on time.

It was a diary story waiting to happen. The Association of Train

Operating Companies has delayed its first ever pitch for a lobbying

agency - because its members couldn’t get there on time.



A spokewoman for ATOC, which represents the 25 operators of passenger

train services, tells me the pitch has now been timetabled three weeks

after the original date (PR Week, 28 February).



’Basically,’ she explains, ’it proved very difficult for the people

making the decision, who are the managing directors of the train

operating companies, to attend on the earlier date. They are very busy

people.’
