A Mold-based PR agency now boasts a Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) North West committee member in its ranks.
Outwrite PR’s head of digital Anthony Bullick, was named as the newest member of the CIPR committee for the North West region, which covers Cumbria, Manchester, Liverpool, Chester and North Wales.
He spent the previous 12 months as a co-opted member of the committee, helping organise events and assisting with social media campaigns, and became a formal member of the North West committee at its AGM.
The CIPR is a professional body for PR practitioners based in the UK. It provides training, education and also hosts a range of awards and events.
Since qualifying as an accredited practitioner in November 2014, Anthony’s involvement with the CIPR has continued to grow with regular attendance to the group’s wide range of events for PR professionals.
Some of the events attended include a workshop on how to shoot and edit quality video content on just a smartphone, and a ‘FuturePRoof’ seminar on what the future of the PR industry will look like.
Anthony said: “I’ve enjoyed every minute of my work with the CIPR, so I’m thrilled to be able to join the committee.
“The CIPR’s resources are fantastic for keeping up to date with everything going on in the PR sector, which benefits my work at Outwrite for its clients.
“We’ve got a lot planned for the year ahead and I’m looking forward to playing a part in some really exciting projects.”
Anthony is one of the few CIPR accredited practitioners in Wales, and also sits on the Institute of Directors’ North Wales committee. Outside of Outwrite, he runs the Twitter account for UK-based fans of American football (NFL) team the Philadelphia Eagles @BritishEagles.
He was also 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.
