on the phenomenal development of an enviable portfolio
of publishing houses – the UK-based Nelson Thornes,
Macmillan Publishers, Oxford University Press, The Hodder
Group and Evans Brothers and the Trinidad-based Royards
Publishing – management found it necessary to set
up a department to promote the school texts put out by
these publishers. This is done primarily through face-to-face
contact. Other methods include distribution of samples,
catalogues, fliers, consultations and direct mailing campaigns.
In addition, the department maintains a Showroom that
stocks books, charts and CD-ROMs from the publishers.
Various activities are arranged for teachers in the Showroom
on a regular basis. From time to time representatives
of the publishers visit the island and team up with EPU
staffers to run seminars or do book launches.
Mrs. Euphemia Baugh heads the Department. Other team members
are: Promotional Representative - Norman Livingston; Marketing
Representatives - Shawn Banton, Damani Johnson and
