Outwrite’s digital PR workshops have proven such a success that more dates have been added across Wales for 2015, with more likely to follow.
Extra workshops, which are held on behalf of Business Wales, have been added in the north in Llandudno, St Asaph and Bangor, and in the south in Barry, Swansea and Caerphilly.
Outwrite’s head of digital Anthony Bullick, who is also the agency’s lead digital trainer, has been delivering interactive workshops across Wales since September 2014. Originally piloted in North Wales in Wrexham, Denbighshire, Gwynydd and Flintshire, the successful PR workshops were extended to South Wales.
The seminars tell attendees how to increase their company’s profile off- and online. Topics include how to draft and issue press releases, integrate social media marketing, and achieve SEO (search engine optimisation) benefits from your PR activity.
Anthony will also share advice from his time spent writing for the Nottingham Evening Post, operating as a social media journalist at the Rugby League World Cup and his role at Mold-based Outwrite.
Anthony said: “There is a real appetite out there for businesses to learn how to enhance and protect their reputation in order to grow their business.
“Each workshop has had a fantastic turnout with many locations having a waiting list.
“The sessions are very practical and allow attendees to go back to the office ready to begin liaising with the media and creating a buzz online with their news.”

Barry: Friday 8 May at The Business Centre, 9am to 12.30pm
Swansea: Thursday 14 May at the Liberty Stadium, 9am to 12.30pm
