One of the few Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) accredited practitioners in Wales has earned his status for another year.

Outwrite’s head of digital, Anthony Bullick, has completed the CIPR’s continued professional development (CPD) programme, a requirement for all accredited practitioners.

Anthony originally qualified as an accredited practitioner in November 2014, becoming one of only 41 to hold the title in Wales.

An accredited status is awarded to CIPR members and fellows as recognition of their commitment to keeping professional skills and knowledge up to date.

In the last 12 months Anthony has attended workshops and seminars on topics including how to shoot and edit professional video content using a smartphone and how Google Analytics plays an increasingly bigger role in the newsroom at the Liverpool Echo.

He also earned points for his involvement on the CIPR’s North West committee where he provides assistance at events as well as raising its profile through social media marketing.

Anthony, who is also a Daily Post columnist, said: “I’m really pleased to have earned the Accredited Practitioner status for another year. It highlights my commitment to continuing to grow both personally and professionally.

“At Outwrite we’re always on the look out for the latest industry changes and the CIPR’s resources and events are very useful for any PR professional.

“There are more exciting events in the pipeline for the year ahead and I’m looking forward to attending as many as possible.”

Anthony was shortlisted for two industry awards in 2015 and regularly delivers educational digital PR and SEO (search engine optimisation) workshops to businesses seeking to up-skill their in-house personnel.
