Ffion Clwyd Edwards
Ffion, a fluent Welsh speaker, grew up on a farm in the Conwy Valley, North Wales and graduated from University College of Wales in Aberystwyth with a Welsh language degree before moving into journalism.
She worked as an assistant magazine editor for a Welsh language youth magazine, combining editorial writing with graphic design.
Ffion then secured a role working as press and PR officer at North Wales Police. The post involved working with the media on high-profile cases from murders to burglaries and creating and managing the force’s public documents and reports. As part of a wider marketing role, she developed a new brand and image for the service. She also established a new website and worked on internal and external marketing campaigns.
Returning to her agricultural roots, Ffion then took up the reign as press and PR officer for NFU (National Farmers Union) Cymru. This role involved working with bilingual media to raise the organisation’s profile and promote its work to its 15,000 members. She also established a new bilingual website for the union and managed the union’s exhibitions and events in North Wales.
In 2005, Ffion established her own bilingual press and PR business. She is an associate at Outwrite, where she provides all of our Welsh language PR.
Ffion lives with her husband and young sons on a farm in Conwy, North Wales and enjoys singing, reciting and reading.
