The managing director of Flintshire-based PR agency Outwrite will be on a panel of leading North Wales business experts taking part in a Question Time event chaired by ITV’s Carole Green.

Tracy North will tackle PR-related issues and concerns facing businesses in the region. She will be joined by experts on employment law and HR, accountancy, marketing, and manufacturing and importing.
‘How to outgrow your competitors’, which will be chaired by ITV Cymru Wales’ business correspondent Carole Green, is being co-hosted by the North Wales branches of the Institute of Directors (IoD) and Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).
The event takes place on Thursday 3 July at the Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndwr University, Wrexham. It runs from 5.30pm to 7.30pm and attendees will have chance to network prior to the panel taking questions.
Carole Green said: “Now is your chance to pick the brains of businesspeople who’ve been there and done it.
“They understand the quirks of geography and challenges of doing business in this region and are willing to share their expertise with you. We’re hoping for a lively event.”
IoD North Wales chair Helen Watson said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for business leaders across North Wales to pick the brains of some of the region’s top experts in their respective fields.
“Places are limited and I urge everyone to book early to avoid disappointment for what will be one of the events of the year.”
Helen, a partner and head of employment of law at Aaron & Partners, will be on the panel to answer questions on HR matters. She will be joined by Tracy, who will tackle PR-related issues and concerns.
