Outwrite’s managing director Tracy North was thrown straight in at the deep end in her new role as chair of CBI North Wales – a live interview on BBC Radio Wales the day after the budget.

Tracy was invited to be a part of a two-way discussion on Wales at Work, presented by BBC business correspondent Brian Meechan, about the effect of the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne’s budget announcement on businesses.

Joining Tracy and Brian was Denise Roberts, tax director at Broomfield and Alexander.

Tracy stayed on the line when the subject changed to the Northern Powerhouse, and she and Brian were then joined by UK Fast’s chief executive Lawrence Jones to discuss North Wales’ involvement in the proposed scheme.

The subject of the Northern Powerhouse was nothing new to Tracy: the day before she was a part of a two-page feature in the business section of the Daily Post. The article was posted online and received 242 shares – one of the most shared business stories on the Daily Post’s website in July.

Indeed, Tracy’s recent appointment as North Wales CBI chair attracted media coverage with the Daily Post and the Flintshire Leader both dedicating column inches to the story.

Away from CBI-related coverage, Anthony’s latest column appeared in the Daily Post (read it on the Outwrite website), and our latest PR award shortlist was covered by the Daily Post, the Flintshire Leader, and the Flintshire Chronicle.

The Daily Post dedicated a double-page spread to the announcement that Tracy was nominated for one of its Leaders Awards, and the article was published online, too.

Finally, we appeared in the North West Business Insider, being listed as one of the top PR and marketing agencies in the region, as voted for by our peers. Check out the online coverage.
