Press release:

A digital director at a Mold-based integrated PR agency is up for a major North Wales business award.

Outwrite PR’s Anthony Bullick is shortlisted for best young business leader at the Insider Wales North Wales Business Leaders awards.

The digital expert, and North Wales’ only chartered PR practitioner is up against four other young leaders for the award, which celebrates the best of North Wales business. The ceremony takes place at Venue Cymru in Llandudno on April 26.

Anthony joined Outwrite in 2012 in a junior position and became a director and shareholder at the PR and content marketing agency last year.

He combines his role at Outwrite with active work in the PR industry as a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) North West committee, commentator in the Daily Post and Wales Business Insider, and speaker at events in Wales, Chester and Manchester.

Anthony’s award shortlist follows Outwrite winning best integrated campaign at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Cymru Wales awards for its work with Jackson Fire & Security.

Anthony said: “It’s a fantastic feeling to be shortlisted at the inaugural North Wales business leaders awards.

“It’s been a whirlwind six months with a promotion, an agency award win, and now this.

“Although it’s an individual award, being shortlisted acknowledges the strength of the entire team at Outwrite.”

“The ceremony is sure to be brilliant evening and I’ll hopefully bring another award back to Outwrite”.

Anthony was shortlisted for two industry awards in 2015 and became a chartered PR practitioner last year.

Outwrite’s managing director Tracy North said: ““Throughout his time at Outwrite, Anthony has proven to be a valuable member of the team.

“I regularly receive unsolicited comments from clients and contacts who praise Anthony’s outputs and his positive approach.

“His drive to learn and progress, and excellent work ethic, has seen him rise up through the ranks quickly.

“It’s no surprise he has been shortlisted for this award.”

Outwrite was founded in 1994 and specialises in PR, social media marketing and SEO (search engine optimisation).

Traditionally a media relations firm, Outwrite’s skillset, combined with the increasing benefits of PR to online marketing such as SEO, has resulted in an increase in businesses requesting an integrated approach to their profile-raising and reputation-management.

Its growing client list includes the Wales Air Ambulance, civil engineering firm Jones Bros, engineering, environmental and planning consultancy Caulmert, and North Wales-based Wynne Construction.
